London, April 1 (IANS) British actress Kate Beckinsale got her American accent by seeing TV shows like “The A-Team” and “Knight Rider”. “I came to America and I could perfectly understand everything everybody was saying because we grew up on ‘Knight Rider’ and ‘The A-Team’,” she said.

She believes British actors find it easy to adopt the American accent because they grow up watching popular US shows while US actors struggle with English accents, thesun.co.uk reports.

She said: “There are some American actors that do it well. I thought Anne Hathaway did a fantastic British accent in ‘Becoming Jane’. But on the whole, I think we have to do it more, and we hear it more growing up.”
