[on learning her american accent] “I learned by watching my favorite shows. I would just rewind and say the words back, until they sounded right to me. I never studied the American accent, in terms of getting a teacher or taking phonetics classes. I’ve always been a good mimic. It really wasn’t that hard for me.”
i’m honestly really happy to see that Greg suddenly coming into a lot of money hasn’t changed him? he still likes living in his van because it’s familiar to him, he still works at the car wash, etc. - i’m so used to seeing impoverished characters in shows who come into a great deal of money suddenly becoming rude/selfish/irresponsible/cruel and it bums me out?
my mum and i grew up in poverty and when we moved in with my stepdad, we suddenly had access to a lot more money than we were used to but we kept buying everything secondhand and all our food cheap and in bulk because it’s what we were so used to
so it’s nice to see that kinda reflected in Greg. he’s got a whole lotta money but he’s still the same sweet guy
“I had a little talk with myself, I said, I have to stop taking these roles where I am just the chick that is throwing herself at the leading man. No disrespect to that role, but I have kind of done it.”
