“Brain on Fire”: Richard Armitage’s credible American accent and a new movie poster, February 13, 2017 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #1042)

In the  official movie  trailer for  the film “Brain on Fire”, the exquisitely talented British actor Richard Armitage (below in a scene with his daughter portrayed by Chloe Grace Moretz) shares a very credible American accent–different than other American characters that he played—as the divorced Dad Tom Cahalan advocating for his daughter’s medical care during a health crisis.


And since this movie was filmed before Richard Armitage’s starring role of Daniel Miller in the tv show “Berlin Station”, I would have to say that his American accent in “Brain on Fire” seems very Midwestern to me—not nasally, as some actors gratingly portray it—but instead, with him using the upper registers of that lovely baritone of his. Sighhh!

Have a listen to Richard Armitage’s accent in the official movie trailer for “Brain on Fire” (starting at 1:18, “We’ve had so many doctors, so many opinions …”:

The “Reel Advice” article by Jed Chua also contains a new movie poster (see below) for “Brain on Fire” and starring Chloe Grace Moretz who portrays a young woman whose life spirals out of control when she develops seizures that the doctors can’t explain:

About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11
