From The Washington Times and from the British Ambassador ( not kidding )


Is there something inherently evil about an English accent?

The British ambassador doesn't think so, but he is seeing what he calls a "cinematic trend" in Hollywood where the latest, chic vampire movies feature English actors.

Rather than complain about the typecasting,Ambassador Nigel Sheinwald welcomes the exposure for young, talented British actors and expects the trend to continue.

"It seems an immutable law of Hollywood that the finest baddies in American film are always played by Brits. I'm not sure exactly why - there is nothing inherently menacing, I think, about an English accent," he wrote on his blog at http://blogs.fco.

He was inspired to muse on the fame of British bloodsuckers with the release of the second installment of the vampire saga, "Twilight." British actor Robert Pattinson plays the young vampire,Edward Cullen, in his star-crossed romance with Bella Swan, played by American actress Kristen Stewart.

"This spectacular teen drama ... has attracted, in some circles, as much attention as the current health care debate (although being undead would still presumably be classed as a pre-existing condition?)," Mr. Sheinwald quipped.

He also noted that another English actor, Stephen Moyer, has "proved a tremendous hit" as vampire Bill Compton in the HBO series, "True Blood."

British actors have a long history of portraying Dracula, who, according to legend, was Romanian. Nevertheless, the English accent stuck, like the cape, the bat and a stake through the heart. Christopher Lee played the vampire count, popularized by the Irish novelistBram Stoker in 1897, in several films in the 1950s and Gary Oldman continued the tradition, playing Dracula in a 1992 film.

Mr. Sheinwald wondered whether this was really just a coincidence or something more "cryptic."

"Could it be the British climate creates the pale and pasty complexion necessary to portray authentically Bram Stoker's monster?" he asked. "Or is it our 'deadpan' humor, putting the grave in graveyard, that makes us British especially suited to vampire kitsch?"

Mr. Sheinwald concluded with confidence that British actors will continue to enjoy stardom in Hollywood.

"The 'stakes' may be high," he said, "but you my most definitely 'count' on it!"
