Stars You Didn't Know Were British!
Andrew Garfield and Christian Bale are just a few of the British actors selling out the box office across the pond, but which other stars had us fooled with their impressive American accents? We've rounded up the Hollywood celebrities you didn't know were English!
1. Keifer Sutherland
You may recognise this action man as Jack Bauer from the nail-biting series '24' but did you know Keifer was actually born in London? The star, who is the son of famous actor Donald Sutherland, considers himself Canadian as he grew up there, but heck he's still eligible for a British passport!
2. Andrew Garfield
You may recognise Andrew Garfield better when he's wearing a red and blue suit in his role as Spiderman, but the hot Hollywood actor spent the larger part of his life living in Surrey, England before starting his career in Tinsletown.
3. Christian Bale
You may know this gorgeous face as Batman in 'The Dark Knight' franchise, but did you know that Christian Bale was born in Haverfordwest in Wales? Although his origins are Welsh, he’s been quoted as identifying himself as English but his american Accent could have fooled us!
4. Hugh Laurie
While most of Hugh's fans here in the UK were familiar with his appearance in 'Black Adder' the actor had the Stateside audience fooled with his uncanny American accent during his portrayal of Dr.Gregory in the hit US series 'House'. Very convincing!
5. Charlie Hunnam
If you don't recognise Charlie Hunnam from 'Sons Of Anarchy' TV series then you may recognise him as the actor who walked out on a role as Christian Grey in the upcoming 'Fifty Shades of Grey' film. Despite Charlie's convincing portrayal of Jackson 'Jax' Teller in the US drama, this Geordie boy hails from Newcastle upon Tyne.
6. Ed Westwick
Making his way onto our screens as the sinister Chuck Bass in the popular series 'Gossip Girl', Ed has us all fooled with his steely portal of the upper westside New Yorker. However we were shocked to find out the 27-year-old was born and raised in Stevenage, Hertfordshire.
7. Kim Catrall
Kim was often seen galavanting around posh bars in New York with her co-star Sarah Jessica Parker in 'Sex and the City' but did you know this slick New Yorker is actually English? The 58-year-old girl calls Liverpool her hometown!
8. Mischa Barton
Winning praise for her role as the troubled Marissa Cooper in 'The O.C', Mischa's depiction as the Californian teen had us all duped. Turns out the 28-year-old actress hails from Hammersmith in London.
9. Wentworth Miller
When Wentworth burst onto the Hollywood scene after landing a role in 'Prison Break', we were won over by his bad boy looks but we would never guess in a million years the actor was born in Oxfordshire!
