You are among my favorite actors of all time, Mr. Spacey. From your skills to the amazing roles that suited you so well, you are indeed among the elite in Hollywood and well-earned. I am a native of Spartanburg, SC and spent my most memorable years in Cowpens, right on the Cherokee County border. In middle school and early high school every girl I dated was from Jonesville or Gaffney. My Mom's family is from NY but we are all South Carolinian for sure, however as a result I am highly skilled at languages. I speak this Upstate SC accent as well as anyone being a native here even though I am often accused of being from "the north" because I have a reasonable grasp of the English language. That said, your interpretation of an Upstate SC accent is horrible...This is not Northern Georgia or Louisiana, whatever hybrid accent you're going for there. People from Gaffney as a majority do not speak with the southern accent you so beautifully do in House of Cards. Oh, I remember watching the Peachoid go up from the steel beams and all...I fished in the ponds that provided fresh water to the peach orchards all over Cherokee County. I speak "properly" according to my fellow natives, but I can blend in with them too, and your portrayal of an Upstate SC accent is so far off it's embarrassing. The writing and your considerable skills are amazing...Please don't get me wrong. All I'm saying is that as a native of this congressional district I'm disappointed in your failure to truly grasp our accent.
