This is Sophie Skelton she is our Brianna Randall Fraser. She seems fairly new to the acting world (2012).

IMDB: Sophie Alexandra Skelton was born and raised in Woodford, England, UK. She is the youngest of three, with two older brothers Sam and Roger (ironic no?). Her parents, Simon and Ruth Skelton, are both toy inventors. Having completed her A-Levels in Biology, Chemistry, English Literature and Maths she turned down her University offers to pursue her career as an actor, being the first in the family to go into acting.

Skelton has appeared in TV series including Doctors, DCI Banks Waterloo Road and Foyle’s War.  She most recently appeared on BBC drama Casualty – Forsaking All Others and will next be seen in action-adventure series Ren. On the film side, she’ll appear in upcoming feature Another Mother’s Son, directed by Christopher Menaul, followed by Ladybird, directed by Tim Fellingham and Charlotte Stente Nelson.

Here is a compliation of her acting....

And Sophie didn't an American accent HERE.

Brianna is a striking, redheaded young lady, strong-minded and intelligent beyond her years (traits inherited from both her mother and father), with a distinctly scholastic mind-set and a healthy dose of Fraser stubbornness.

You can follow Sophie on Twitter.

Smart and pretty, very much like both of her TV parents, Caitriona and Sam.

LOL I think so too.

I always imagined that Bree speaks with at least a slight British accent given that both her parents were English (British). And not just English, but highly educated, so spoke very proper British English. That's what she would have learned to speak as a child. Yes, she grows up in the US, but based on the examples of people in a similar situation (myself included, but with French, not English), you don't lose how you first learn to speak. Her British accent might be more muted than Claire's, but she should still have one.

I think we'll see touches of it just because Sophie is British. I would agree with you too.

She already has blue eyes, is 5'8" tall, and if they give her red hair and eyebrows, she should be a terrific Brianna. She may have only been acting since 2012, but according to IMDb.com, she's been in quite a few shows.

I'm sure she'll be as great as the rest of the cast. They have made wonderful choices so far.

I know. I read that. She's just working working working. Good for her.

I expect she'll be excellent but I feel we are going to have to really wait until Season 3 to see a lot of her.

Looking forward to seeing how she tackles the role.
Wonder how she'll handle the Bostonian accent.

See my comment a bit above. I don't understand why she would have one as she would have learned to speak with a British accent given that both her parents were British. Her accent would perhaps have become more subtle over time as she was exposed to Americans in school and such, but it wouldn't have disappeared completely, and she certainly wouldn't end up with a full-on Bostonian accent. That's illogical.
Jill aka Josireesanwar on February 12th, 2016 01:19 am (UTC)
I do think that with schooling they would have tried to teach the British accent out of her so she could really lose it mostly there.

Well she was born in Boston, had friends from Boston, so it makes more sense for her to have a Boston accent. I've seen kids more from one place to another and quickly take up the dialect where they've moved to. Granted her parents are British, but f that's the only British input she gets it wouldn't make sense for her to speak with that dialect.

I took a class in college with an accents coach and she explained that we mostly get our speech patterns, accents and dialects from peers. Parents are a heavy influence too but we take on the sound we engage with the most which are friends and those we talk with all the time. Kids will change their speech so it is somewhat logical for Bree.
