Jimmy Kimmel confused by Kiwi star's off-stage accent
Kiwi actress Rose McIver confused Jimmy Kimmel by speaking in her native tongue.
McIver appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk about her "rom, com, zom, dram" show iZombie.
When questioned about her off-screen accent, McIver admitted she was a fraud (as her onscreen persona has an American accent), and is from New Zealand.
Kimmel then promptly welcomed her to his nation.
Titirangi raised McIver moved to Los Angeles to pursue her career after appearing in numerous Kiwi productions, including The Piano and The Lovely Bones.
After a stint on Once Upon A Time where she played Tinker Bell, McIver landed the lead in high-concept crime-drama iZombie, in which she plays Liv, a medical student who refuses to let zombification get in the way of her un-life.
iZombie's second season premiered in the US on October 6.
