Real Brummies required

I was amused to see that the producers of the second series of Peaky Blinders, the crime drama based in Birmingham in the early twentieth century, are appealing for more local people to audition for roles. This is after the accents in the first series were criticised as being unrealistic and weird. Presumably they’re hoping that by having genuine Brummies in minor speaking roles, it will bring a bit more authenticity to the series, which ::cough:: probably wouldn’t be difficult, judging by the few supposedly Brummie accents I heard.

Now, if only they could audition some of the local streets to be used as locations at the same time…

  1. LOL! Language usage makes such a big difference doesn’t it? And really, it shouldn’t have been a huge stretch in the first place to get authentic Brummies to serve as extras…
