Trivia When the show was broadcast in the U.K., many viewers wrote in to chide Charles Shaughnessy over his "imitation" English accent, and suggested he practice with co-star Daniel Davis on how to do a proper English accent. The cast found this quite amusing, as Shaughnessy is a native Englishman, born in London while Davis is an American, born in Arkansas. In a nod to this funny situation, an episode in the final season, has Niles appearing in Grace's (Madeline Zima's) school play of Cleopatra, where he receives bad reviews, one of which, is how his English accent sounds fake.
