THE FIRST TRAILER for the highly-anticipated Mary Queen of Scots has landed.
And as behind-the-scenes footage which surfaced last year suggested, Margot Robbie is, indeed, almost unrecognisable.
But, if we’re being honest here, we’re more interested in Saoirse Ronan’s interpretation of a Scottish accent in her role as Mary Stuart.
Now, given the fact that our own attempts make us sound like a demented Groundskeeper Willie, we’re not here to judge, merely discuss.
Does she fully nail it? Or do we hear her lapse back into her native accent on a few occasions?
Unfortunately however, YouTubers seemed initially more intent on discussing Margot’s uncanny resemblance to a certain clown we all know and fear.
I thought this was a trailer for IT Part 2. Thumbnail creeped me out.
Thought the thumbnail was Pennywise.
PENNYWISE IN THE THUMBNAIL ANYONE?
Thankfully, a few people did us a solid and focused on the matter at hand, but it wasn’t as much to critique Saoirse’s accent as it was to question why she was doing it in the first place.
Why does Mary have a Scottish accent? She grew up in France!
You know, for someone who spent most of her childhood in France, Mary of Scots had such a good Scottish accent.
Mary spoke with a French accent,as she was raised in France.
We’re going to leave this one to you lot.Source: Movieclips Trailers/YouTube
