Snowfall Actor Picked Up West Coast Accent From Rapper WC
Snowfall was the brainchild of movie director John Singleton and unfortunately with the untimely passing over the summer. There was doubt on whether the show would still survive without his presence.
However not only did the show survive. It is going on to be one of the biggest seasons yet. The star of the show is Damson Idris who is now one kingpins in the drug game on the West Coast. What a lot of people don't realize is that the actor is actually from London. With the show based on the 80's in Los Angeles. He obviously had to sound like he was from the West Coast. Check him out as he talks with Jimmy Kimmel about picking up the accent and who taught him.
Some of you may know him from being the friend and partner in rhyme with Ice Cube. But he is also a talented individual in his own right. Check out a few of my favorite videos from WC from back in the day.
