ah i was born in Boston Mass. and spent alot of time up in Danvers Mass as a kid. i lived with my mom in northern Arizona but my mom had new england accent and so did my dad and every other week id go back to Mass. to stay with my dad, so naturally as i learned to talk i picked up the "Boston" accent. you really want to get picked on as a kid live in the west coast with a new england accent. not at all fun. decided to try to get rid of it at about 6, finally got rid of it at 9-10 years old. where at in new york you from? bout the only place ive been in NY is the city when i was 7. i went for a Red Sox vs. Yankees game. that was something. never been to a game like it since
how ever it was also stated that he was born and raised in that town. i dont know if you've ever been to new york state or new england in general they all (myself included when im drunk) have weird accents. it took me 5 years to get rid of my boston accent.
but as for vlad they need to go scouting in everyday middle schools in new york not some child celebrity school in LA. that way they will have a kid that understands vlads point as a normal kid, plus as an added bonus he'll already have the accent naturally and we wont be subjected to god awfull fake accents.
that would be cool for the last two books when vlad gets Stronger ans faster those fight scenes will be cool assuming they don't do twilight graphics (they move normal speed but scenery flys by all blured out. youd think with as much money as the first movie made they would update the running scenes.)
