21 Accents with Amy Walker

posted by Nell Minow

Actress Amy Walker’s astonishing virtuosity with accents is on display in this popular YouTube clip. Can you guess which one is her real native-born accent?

    Not Texas; not unless she’s having fun with all the non-Texans out there. [She’s good, wherever she’s from.]

  • Nell Minow

    Texas — like the other places she includes — has a range of accents. Not sure whether she’s doing Austin, Dallas, Houston, or someplace else, but for one sentence I think she did pretty well!

  • TatteredInk

    I think she’s Irish…She has that ‘r’ accent in most of the accents

  • Nell Minow

    Good guess! But she is from Seattle.
