Though you might not know it from her American roles in movies such as Mallrats and The Rock — or the Scottish accent she sports while sipping whisky in TV ads — Claire Forlani, 40, actually is British. The London native, most recently seen on NCIS: Los Angeles, talks with an off-screen lover named Angus in the Dewar’s ads, but her real-life beloved is actor husband Dougray Scott. At least she has someone at home who can help with her brogue — Scott himself hails from Scotland.
