A fun interview about acting, contact, accommodation, and identity:

@max_balegde My favourite interview of all time. She was so sweet and she can talk however she wants!!!! Damsel is out now! @Netflix #milliebobbybrown ♬ original sound – Max_Balegde

There's been quite a bit of media coverage of MBB's accent and the reaction to this interview. This Netflix Film club video gives some commercial background:

    It's interesting that a Nando's gift card is treated in the clip as something quintessentially British when my first exposure to the chain (great Afro-Portuguese food!) was in Chicago, IL, and my second was in Washington, DC.

    I do remember going into a Nando's in Leeds and when I said they existed in the US the server was quite surprised.

    The mix of cockney and standard American calls Dick Van Dyke to mind.
