By and large, American audiences don't notice or care if an Aussie or Brit mangles an American accent. In Britain, it's an entirely different story. If a middle class actor doesn't nail a posh accent or a Geordie isn't convincing as Liverpudlian or, heaven forfend, an English actor can't imitate a Scot, there will be gnashing of teeth and an agonized, nationwide debate. And if a foreigner fails at it...armageddon.
