Maybe I’ve been living under a rock or something…
I’ve been following ABC’s Brothers and Sisters since it started, and it’s a very interesting drama with a great cast, including Sally Field, Patricia Wettig, Calista Flockhart, and Rob Lowe. It’s been getting pretty tense this season, and so when I noticed that my Tivo had picked up an episode of The View with guests Sally Field and Calista Flockhart, I watched it while folding laundry.
As part of the segment, they did a tour of the B&S set, led by Matthew Rhys who plays brother Kevin Walker. I had never noticed his (real) name before, and when he started speaking with a Welsh accent, I though he was putting it on. And then it became apparent that it IS his real voice, and his Kevin Walker accent is put on! Holy cow! Another Hugh Laurie/Gregory House thing (although he’s a Brit, but you get my drift.)
I have a thing for accents. Z initially won me over with his cute Lebanese-French accent. And let me tell you, I could listen to Matthew Rhys lecture on particle physics and pay total attention. Here’s a clip from the YouTube, an interview with ABC News, talking about his role on Brothers and Sisters.
