Brett Tucker Got Cast on ‘Mistresses’ as an American But That Changed When He Showed Up On-Set

brett-tuckerBrett Tucker wasn’t always going to play his character on ABC’s Mistresses as an Australian.  The character was initially written as an American, but was later changed to use the actor’s own accent.

“I went into the audition as an American, got cast as an American,” Tucker explained in an interview with The Wall Street Journal.  “It wasn’t until first day shooting pilot, I was there for hair and makeup and chatting to the show runner.  Yunjin [Kim, who plays Karen] suggested that I use my own accent.  So we changed the storyline a bit because I prepared to be an American, but the accent really sold everyone on Harry.”

The new show is getting press for the amount of time the male actors have their shirts off.

“It does have that, and that’s probably the sexy element,” Tucker admitted.  “It’s pleasant to look at, and it’s an ultimately universal show, but the more the show goes on the more human it gets.  I’ll be wearing more clothing as it goes on.”

The show airs on ABC, Mondays at 10 p.m.
