Homeland's Damian Lewis struggles to shake American accent

Homeland actor Damian Lewis has admitted that he finds it hard to drop his American accent after playing a number of American roles.

The 42-year-old star studied hard to sound American for TV mini-series Band of Brothers and now admits the dialect comes a little too easy to him.

Hollywood.com quote Lewis as saying: "I had to concentrate a lot during Band of Brothers for about nine months... and now I wake up on a Saturday morning and I go to the grocery store and I talk in an American accent.

"If I meet Americans through the day at a weekend, I'll stay in an American accent all weekend. It's really weird. I can't shake it."
