Everyone has seen X-men TAS and has heard the marvelous & iconic voice acting for Storm.
But there is just one problem. Almost all people assume Storm has an African accent-- Which is completely false.
As we all know Storm was born in New York and eventually moved to Northern Africa. yada-- yada--- etc..
Yes. Storm is considered 'Kenyan'..... But a lot of that is just dazzled up for entertainment sake (Like Aaliyah's Egyptian accent in Queen of the Damned. Nobody knows how ancient Egyptians spoke! It's just made up.)
She doesn't NOT have a Kenyan accent or better yet-- any type of North African accent or voice of any kind. It's actually very Shakespearean and round with a regal plume. Her voice is actually more American than it is African. People just assume it's 'African' because they are ignorant and don't know any better (which it's not their fault for the lack of exposure of African people) .
If ANYTHING-- Storm's accent could be *South* African -- with more of a British ruled tongue... but even that's a stretch. Heck-- Even Halle Berry's accent in X-men1 was more African than Storm's. Maybe when we can understand what it is exactly what we want, that information can help us cast Storm's voice better in the media for future projects.
If you need anymore proof, here is an interview is Alison Sealy-Smith (The voice of Storm in X-men TAS)
