Kya (Daisy Edgar-Jones) immersed herself in Kya's world which required her to adopt a mid-century Carolina accent.

The coastal marshlands of North Carolina take on a mythic quality in Delia Owens' Where the Crawdads Sing. They are where the protagonist, Kya, grows up alone after her family leaves. They are also both the source of her artistic inspiration and her social isolation from the people in the nearby town of Barkley Cove.
