I saw the British English vs American English thread and couldn't help but remember some observation I made a while ago. In almost every movie, series or television show I have ever laid eyes on, the ones with British actors seem much better. Just two sidenotes there: 1. I am speaking in general terms, of course there are exceptions, but in general British actors seem better to me. 2. I am not British myself, so I have no patriotic reason to make the claim that British actors are better, I geniunely just feel that way. I am not so much interested in the why question as a quick google search seems to point into one direction: schools. It seems that British acting schools/classes are simply better. Moreover, most British actors begin on the stage and slowly enter into the world of cinema. They seem to be eased in a lot more than their American counterparts. Lastl -this is highly subjective- I feel American actors seem to aim for fame or end up strangled by it whilst their British counterparts seem more serious about their craft. But like I said, that is just how I feel about it. With all that said, my question to you guys is, how do you feel about British and American actors? Do you think there is a real difference in skill, education or seriousness? Or is hollywood perhapse to blame? Let me know your thoughts!
