HEATHER GRAHAM created a convincing cockney accent in the JACK THE RIPPER movie from HELL (2001) by thinking of her hero OLIVER TWIST. The pretty blonde actress admits she based her voice on that of the princely pauper while practising for her part opposite JOHNNY DEPP in the film.
And it worked - as she explains, "I was at a party and I was drunk and they said, 'Oh let's hear your accent' And they said, 'Oh, you sound just like Oliver'. " (MB/U/NFA)
