Will Kemp loses his accent for ‘Jolly Good Christmas’


Will Kemp starred alongside Reshma Shetty in “Jolly Good Christmas,” which premiered on Hallmark on October 29. In real life, Kemp has a distinctive British accent. But he dropped the accent for the film, which surprised many viewers. He spoke about the change in social media and answered questions.

Kemp said he loves taking on challenges with accents

On Twitter, one person asked Kemp how difficult it was to keep the American accent throughout the film, especially when they were shooting in London.

Kemp replied: “I love making accents, I’m always up for a challenge and I’ve played against Americans before. I won’t lie though it was tough being surrounded by so many Brits. But it was great script in @HRHOliver1!”

Another person asked, “what happened to your beautiful English accent? 😂😂😂 #JollyGoodChristmas”

Kemp replied, “The Americans got it!”

He talked more about his American accent in one Interview with TV fanatic.

He said, “I really hope you were able to get over that (the American accent) and enjoy the film, and I hope you were able to embrace the fact that I’m playing an American, which I enjoy.”

He added that the way the film was written left him with no choice but to ditch his accent.

“I think there was no choice,” he said. “I mean, the way the script was written, it was brilliantly written. … What attracted me to the project … was that Ron Oliver’s script had such a unique and authentic combination of a South Asian family, the Patels in London and what felt authentic … Then an American or someone from another country had to come from the Outsider. The Kulturkampf.”

He said he loves the challenge of portraying someone new to London.

“Playing a character who has only recently come to London was a wonderful opportunity to explore London pretty much through the eyes of a tourist.”
