ENGLISH actor Charlie Cox says he hopes his Irish accent is up to scratch in the new Dublin-based crime drama Kin, which is set for release this week.
The programme follows a fictional Dublin family embroiled in a gangland feud and features Hollywood A-listers such as Ciaran Hinds and Aidan Gillen.
It will be an eight-part series exploring the story of the Kinahan Cartel - a notorious family of Irish gangsters shipping drugs in and out of Dublin while battling rival gangs in the city.
It focuses on the Cartel's long-running feud with the Hutch Gang, which has lead to the deaths of 20 people.
Cox plays the role of Micheal Kinsella, who is readjusting to life following a stint behind bars.
The London-born actor has worked with an Irish accent before during his time on Boardwalk Empire, but admitted that it's now under a lot more scrutiny as he's surrounded by dozens of Irish actors on the set of Kin.
"So if the accent isn't good, it will stick out like a sore thumb," Cox said.
"[The other actors] were very kind about it, but they were probably trying to be encouraging. I probably won't read reviews because I don't tend to do that, but hopefully it's good enough. We'll see."
The 38-year-old admitted how brilliant it was to work with Hinds and Gillen - actors he'd admired for many years.
"I've watched them since I was a teenager. They're two of the best in the business, so that was very exciting for me."
Cox, best known for his role as blind vigilante Daredevil, said how grateful he was to be able to work with his eyes again.
"I was excited to be on camera again, and to be able to use my eyes in my craft. It's such an amazing experience doing the Marvel Daredevil show, and particularly the fact that it's opened doors for me, and my involvement with the visually impaired community," he said.
"But trying to act without your eyes is tremendously challenging."
