    accent (video)

    Would you be so kind as to tell me whether it is possible to place this accent or is it too generic, as it were?
    YouTube

    Thanks.

    Re: accent (video)

    I would have said the same as Piscean. Out of curiosity, I then checked her biography online. She was born and raised in Wimbledon, in south-west London. She originally trained as an actress and I think that's evident in her enunciation and her body language/hand gestures. You can certainly tell that she now lives in the USA. For example, at 5:03, the way she says "fearful" clearly demonstrates an American influence in the "r".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
