And I would have appreciated her attempt at fighting racism much more if she hadn't agreed to special make up and prosthetics to make herself look like Mary Kom.  I'm sure there are a lot of talented Indian artists with similar features to Mary Kom.  

correct

You already have an accent. Is that something you have retained on the show ?

I have never played an FBI agent. In fact, you will hear me speak in a more American accent than the one that I already have! Because to be a FBI agent, you need to be an American citizen, so it was very important for me to get that right. I had dialect coaching to sound even more American and how much I have laughed! Because I told them in India anyway people think I have an accent, now with Quantico, that's on some other level



haha why is she so delusionalLOL

Why does one have to have an accent anyway? They should stop focusing on her idiotic accent and focus on her work. One can migrate and still become an American which should have been shown in the show instead of them forcing this fake accent on her, which makes the entire promo sound extremely cringeworthy. 
Having said that, I want Quantico to do well and I look forward to seeing it, muting her voice for most part, until she become comfortable with her own voice.LOL

Watched the trailer. Was okay for today's standards. Not convinced by PC.

And, PC doesn't have an American accent. She has a hybrid accent that's neither American nor Canadian (or British) that foreigners pick through exposure to American/Canadian shows. In the show, at parts she tries to sport an American accent, but it sounds unnatural to me.

Can't blame her though. If the lead character is an American, born and bred, they'd have American accent - more so, which American accent is the key. Should have probably trained her as a hillbilly. Would have been hilarious. She's sporting a general American accent here. There are as many as 21 types of American accents.

Ya, apparently there are!!!! UK accents are so distinctive & unique, American accents have always sounded the same to me!!! LOL You're right about PC but she doesn't have an Indian accent at all. Lara Dutta's isn't forced neither is Sush, Lara spoke like this even before being Miss India/Universe, it's a "convent accent" that she has. Sush's is crafted but she didn't have a typical Indian accent anyway.

So much discussion on her accent?!

I'll say, people here in India, especially those who are too vain do speak with a weird fake accent. That is NOT American, Canadian or English...some crappy accent that each cooks up on his own. So PC's doesn't surprise me at all LOL neither does Madhuri's gloating over "Amerr-ica".

Mads is that weird accent that Indians grow into! the one which isn't Indian but has an American influence. That wasn't faked. It happens naturally. There was a "twang" to her voice , SRK used to hVe a little fun with that in few IVs. LOL  LOL
