Scottish singer Susan Boyle's had to overdub some of her lines in upcoming festive movie The Christmas Candle because her accent is too thick. Boyle, who found fame on TV show Britain's Got Talent, re-recorded several lines for the movie amid fears her dialect would be too strong for viewers to understand.
She tells British newspaper The Sun, "My Scottish accent was a bit thick in places so I had to re-record some of my lines so you wouldn't need subtitles. Note to self, must enunciate more."
The film, which is based on the novel by best-selling author Max Lucado, is due to hit the big screen later this year (13).
From reality show contestant to viral video sensation to... Hollywood movie star?
Vocal powerhouse Susan Boyle is making the jump to movies as she is set to make her feature film debut in John Stephenson's The Christmas Candle.
"Everyone on set is a delight to work with, and it's a fantastic experience to be part of the team," Boyle told THR. "I'm really enjoying getting dressed in the period costumes and stepping back in time, and although it's very cold filming on location, I'm wearing long johns under my bustle." After her Britain's Got Talent audition, Boyle achieved viral video status from her performance of Les Miserables "I Dreamed a Dream."
