Is there an Australian version of the expression, "counting your chickens before they hatch"? Maybe tallying your koalas before they climb? Rating your 'roos before they jump? Tasting your shrimp before they're barbied?

If there is one, Teresa Palmer would know it. Although you might not know it from her role as a superpowered alien in I Am Number Four, or as Jay Baruchel's love interest in The Sorcerer's Apprentice, or as Topher Grace's dream girl in Take Me Home Tonight, Palmer has an Aussie accent as broad and sunny as the Outback itself.

"Honestly, I find it much harder to act in my native accent," says the gorgeous 26-year-old, who now calls Los Angeles home. "I sound too much like Teresa when I speak with my own voice, I can't immerse myself in a character as much."
