Norma Jeane

Telephone conversations provide a handy and informal way of doing work on dialects for an actress. The phone rings and Norma Jeane answers, having a conversation in Posh English with a market researcher. As soon as she hangs up, the bell rings again. Dialects and accents Norma Jeane uses include: Cockney, Scottish, Welsh, Birmingham, American (several kinds), West Indian, African, French, German, Italian and Russian.
She’s so talented that the market researcher Ben Hartley calls her again and tells her: „Mrs. Jeane, I don’t think of you as an actress – you’re better than that!“
