You beat me to it . Juliet Landau, hilariously, had much the same family background as Gillian Anderson.

But it appears from what I've read that she was making an attempt at some quasi-cockney for whatever reason, which I'm sure she never actually spoke as a child. Quite possible she has a decent, very mild English accent she might have pulled off, but she chucked it in favor of going broad and kinda fell on her face.
