Okay, doesn't really fit with the comm, but I'm the mod so whatever.

Q: Recently, I watched CSI and an actor named Rick Peters was in it. He also is a regular in Sue Thomas: FBEye.He has an Australian accent on Sue Thomas but not on CSI. I was wondering if his accent was real?

A: Though Peters was born in Detroit in 1966, his family moved to England when he was 2. They lived there until he was 8, when the family moved back to Michigan. When Peters was 9, his family moved to Australia, where they lived for the next five years. Consequently, he has a bit of a mid-Atlantic or mid-Pacific accent.
