So YouTube somehow keeps uncovering my guilty Disney channel interests and recommended some Disney descendants content and in one of the blooper reels Sofia Carson - the actress who plays evie (& is colombian) - accidentally spoke her line in Spanish and then decided to just roll with it since she already messed up the take. The guy she was with just looks at her and responds “hola” and like that is both hilarious but also adorable???
Like I’m guessing Spanish was sofia’s first language cause I know in my Spanish class when I was reading sentences I just auto translated them to English in my head instead of really seeing and hearing the words. So I can understand the slip up, but that she just blasted through her memorized English lines in Spanish without thought is just so cute and funny but also impressive??? And I can’t place why but idk let me be a dorky adult about childrens’ media
i think she never really had a reason to learn english and so she’s been trying to learn it since she joined the order
i think lavi knows that and is appealing to that in the above image by acting out the word ‘dog’ - but he’s a dork and doesn’t realize that the problem with her understanding that wouldn’t be the word 'dog,’ but the idiomatic connotation of the word
so, i’m gonna go ahead and say that miranda often doesn’t know exactly what’s being said. she knows conversational english because she’s been immersed in it, and she knows occupation-specific words (meaning words that she’d probably never need to know otherwise, like innocence, parasitic, etc.) but a lot of times people talking quickly or using idioms or words she’s never needed to know goes over her head.
she speaks with a heavy german accent, but since she’s centered at the european branch that doesn’t tend to be a problem, because a lot of people at the order are from germany, so people don’t really have a problem understanding her
however, she’s still pretty shy, and is insecure about her accent when speaking english. she opens up more when speaking german, although there aren’t too many people with whom she feels comfortable speaking german besides marie.
that’s one of the ways marie and miranda became close: marie speaks german, and his english is a lot better than hers, so he’s able to translate for her. he’s very patient with her, and that’s something that not many other people in the order have been able to do. as for marie, he really appreciates being able to talk to someone who’s similar to him in how she thinks.
basically i’m saying that miranda’s english isn’t very good and she ends up relying on marie for a while, but even after her english improves and she doesn’t really need marie to translate for her, she keeps asking him for help because she continues to feel insecure about her english.
also miranda not understanding english a lot of the time is so cute i mean. come on. come on.
the other day i got the memory of breath of the wild with zelda nerding out over flowers and telling link to taste a frog and i had the japanese voice on instead of english so i didn’t have to listen to her not as good english voice acting and i fucking, love her. she’s so cute
