From Aussie to Actor

14 Oct


Dear Flynnstones,

when the Australian photo model George Lazenby got the call up to follow Sean Connery as 007, he expressed an interesting take on acting in an early interview.

“What about your Australian accent- do you think there‘ll be any problems as far as international filmgoers are concerned?“

“No, I don‘t think so. I saw a film recently with Errol Flynn, and he still had traces of an Australian accent, and he was accepted. I think if you do what you feel and be natural, people accept you as a person. If you try and be an actor, which I am not trying to be, they may not accept me, because I am not an actor, if you know what I mean…“

    I’m surprised how much I enjoyed his Bond film. Btw do you know what Flynn film he saw? I noticed Mel Gibson’s Aussie accent would appear now and then in the first 3 Lethal Weapon films.
