Where did Julianne Moore learn her Boston accent for Nancy?
Julianne Moore earned a BFA in theatre at Boston University, one of the premiere theatre departments in the US. She has said in interviews that she based Nancy's accent on those of co-workers at a bar in South Boston where she worked in college. Knowledgeable sources have attested that her accent for Nancy is indeed an authentic South Boston "Southie" accent. When Cynthia Nixon recreates Nancy's character for her role in the Avery Jessop film she checks with Liz if her accent is ok and Liz replies "Yes, people from Boston really sound like that to me"
Are any of the characters from the show based on a real person?
