Inventing Anna Fan Explains The Reason For Her Hybrid Accent

Inventing Anna Fan Explains The Reason For Her Hybrid Accent

That makes more sense.

If you're one of the many people who started binge-watching Inventing Anna on Netflix over the weekend, you've definitely noticed the lead character's rather bizarre accent.

The gripping drama tells the true story of Anna Delvey (or Anna Sorokin) - an Insta-famous Russian-German heiress who stole the hearts of the New York social scene - and their money too.

Watch the trailer for the Netflix series here:

Anna Delvey is played by American actress Julia Garner, and while some can't see past her bizarre accent, others insist that her portrayal of the con-woman is spot-on.

One irritated viewer who started the series this week tweeted: "I need this actress playing Anna to pick [an] accent and stick with one! #InventingAnna"

Another added: "Is Anna Delvey Australian or German or Russian or what is happening with her accent."

"I can't for the life of me get past this god awful accent," wrote a third.

But those who are familiar with the true story of Anna Delvey explained that Julia Garner's accent is perfect.

People are hooked on Inventing Anna. (

One confused viewer asked about the accent on Facebook, asking: "I can't stand the accent in Inventing Anna... What is her accent supposed to be?"

A well-informed fan answered: "The accent is exactly how the real Anna speaks."

Another posted: "Let's understand. Inventing Anna... her character's voice/accent is international. She is a Russian trying to sound German. If you follow the story, you understand this... The [actor] portraying her did an amazing job."


Others took to Twitter to put an end to the confusion elsewhere.

One wrote: "I need y'all to understand Anna accent is the way it is because she is faking being German when she is Russian 😭 please look up an interview of Anna.. the actress literally sounds the same #InventingAnna."

Another tweeted: "Screaming cause people genuinely upset about the accent when it’s dead on with how Anna actually spoke 🤣🤣🤣 #InventingAnna"

Julia Garner herself has spoken about Anna's unusual accent.

The actress recently told the Associated Press: "The accent is somebody that's trying to be what she's not.


"She's born in Russia but she lies to people that she's German, so she's not going to have a Russian accent if people are convinced that she's German...

"But then she probably learned English like a British person because she's European... but then she came here and her accent got musically American. She still has a European accent but the delivery is American."

All we'll say is that Anna Delvey's accent is definitely memorable.

You can watch all nine episodes of Inventing Anna on Netflix now.
