His accent is Irish-hot
Born April 2, 1977 (he’s an Aries) in Heidelberg, Germany, Fassbender’s background is German on his father’s side and Irish on his mother’s. He speaks fluent German, but grew up in Ireland and now divides his time between London and Los Angeles, which has left him with a kind of Irish-hot accent. Speaking about his heritage, he told the Irish Voice: "It's totally schizophrenic isn't it? Irish and German is such an odd mix. It's discipline and something else, isn't it?"
