    I saw the trailer and that show looks amazing, definitely going to check it out. Just a quick question, is this how she’s always spoken(accent)? I’ve never heard her speak before this is my first time.

    My sister is an English teacher and she told me that even in the black areas of America when they speak in broken English it’s a similar construction to some of the African languages.

    I’ve noticed a lot of British and Continental Africans playing African American historical figures. Is there an actor exchange situation going on? That would be pretty cool.

    Dear Trevor, Thanks for interviewing this insightful, thoughtful and accomplished young lady! It is apparent, her preparation for “Underground” prompted in her information and empathy re: the horrific and challenging experience of African Americans, which continue on to the present day! If I were much younger than my 73 years, I would likely immigrate away from this place without hesitation. Thank you Trevor and Thuso!

    There is no such thing as “broken English.” The English spoken by Australians, New Zealanders, is different from the English spoken in Britain. Yes there is standardize English, but the vernacular English spoken by African Americans, Afro Caribbeans is not broken English. How mant African American Vernacular English (AAVE) has been added to the English dictionary? Several.

    AAVE is not broken English or an inferior way of speaking.

    I know she had no malicious intent in using the word “broken” but it is important for the correction to be made.

    That is actually one of South African accent , I have the same accent and the reason for my accent is that I learned English from Bold and the beautiful, young and the restless, Passion, etc and the people who go to “model C” school in RSA have the ‘Americanish’ accent.
