London, Jun 10 (ANI): English actress Emily Blunt’s ability to pick up an American accent on the spot has helped to land more roles in Hollywood.

Blunt, 26, who became famous for her roles as the young Queen Victoria and as an icy English fashion magazine assistant in ‘The Devil Wears Prada’, will be appearing in a new movie ‘Sunshine Clearing’.

But she admits that she finds it a struggle to keep up the Yankie twang.

“If you’re in America a lot it’s easy to get into playing American,” the Daily Express quoted her as saying.

“All of it, the sounds, the energies, all very different. But it’s really hard to do the accent. I tend to try and stay in it all day, which is the only way I can manage it.

“It’s worlds apart from what I grew up with,” she added. (ANI)
