Former "James Bond" star Sir Roger Moore has accused British TV bosses of phasing out "proper English" accents in favor of regional dialects. The well-spoken actor reveals his daughter Deborah, who followed her father into showbusiness, complains she is often "turned down for parts" because of her posh voice.

And Moore is convinced the rise of regional accents on British television will eventually lead to the loss of traditional "actors' voices". He says, "(Deborah) complains she is always being turned down for parts because she is not regional in her speech, which I think is a great pity."

"I think it is probably the fault of television. You don't hear what we used to call West End actors' voices on (British drama) series like Holby City, Casualty and The Bill... I think it is sad that proper English is disappearing. I don't see why it went out of fashion."
