To our ears, James McAvoy sounds properly Scottish but when he’s home in his native Glasgow, James gets ribbed for losing his accent. Stick around for part three of his chat with Stephen Colbert, and check out James starring in “Cyrano de Bergerac” at Brooklyn Academy of Music. #Colbert #Cyrano #JamesMcAvoy

    He’s talking in a middle class educated Scottish/ West of Scotland particularly Glaswegian accent that can be heard in the “better parts” of the city.

    I completely feel for him on the accent. When I go home to Canada, people make a literal face at me when I talk, and accuse me of doing a bad American accent. While here, they accuse me of ‘sounding like such a hoser, eh?’… can’t win.
