This might not come as a surprise for all you Michael Gambon fans out there, but the guy pretty much can walk out a pitch-perfect Dublin accent.

The veteran actor appeared on last night's Late Late Show and talked about his distinctive voice, which was put to good use as Professor Dumbledore in the Harry Potter film series. As it turns out, the reason for Gambon's accent is simple - he's actually Irish.

Gambon was born in Cabra, Dublin and lived amongst Irish emigrants in Camden Town, London, where his family moved to when he was five years old. In fact, Gambon's first theatre role was in the Gate Theatre, Dublin in a production of Shakespeare's Othello.

So, how good is Gambon's accent? Take a look.
