Aisling Bea stars in a remake of Home Alone

The phrase ‘actors play parts, stars play themselves’ came to mind this week when the trailer for the Home Alone remake dropped this week. Film fans seemed very put out that Aisling Bea’s character had a British accent, as opposed to her own Kildare ‘lilt’ (as the Brits would call it). One fan tweeted: “You made Aisling Bea change her (beautiful, beautiful) Irish accent to an upper-class English one because you knew the Americans would bitch about it!” The comedian herself took to social media to point out the bleeding obvious — she was playing a character and that character was British. “If she’s from England and spoke with an Irish accent, it would be a bit strange,” Bea offered.
