Does it seem odd to east an English girl as an American chick?

‘Why should it?’ says Susan. ‘I’ve had a lot of acting experience, 14 films and dozens of TV shows. I should be able to play an American. I’m used to acting with Americans anyway. I’ve acted with Telly Savalas,Charles Bronson, Dustin Hoffman.’
