Jane Leeves: I have a standard British accent and Daphne has a Mancunian accent, since she's from Manchester. It's like the difference between a traditional American accent and a southern accent. A Mancunian accent is more working class. I'm so used to slipping in and out of it but sometimes my accent has gotten us into trouble on the scripts because the words don't come out the way the writers envisaged. For instance, I was supposed to tell a joke once that ended in the word Duck, but with the accent it didn't sound funny so they changed it to elephant.
