So Who’s The Mystery Woman In These New Dewar’s Scotch Whisky Commercials?

I’m not sure if it’s her bold Scottish accent or the fact that she’s able to make the twisting open of a bottle of whisky sound a lot like the breaking of bones, but the woman featured in Dewar’s Scotch Whisky’s latest commercials seems to be one bad mama jama. While writing this little blurb I was of course doing some research to find out who exactly the actress featured in Dewar’s various commercials is and all Google-assisted clues have led me to British actress Claire Forlani. Here’s the link to her IMDB page if you want the 4-1-1 on our leading lady. I have to admit that I am a little disappointed to find out that that “bold Scottish accent” I mentioned earlier isn’t as genuine as I had imagined, but regardless it’s still an interesting ad campaign on behalf of Dewar’s.

    This commercial scared me when I first saw it lol . No doubt she has a striking look though!

  2. Jay says:

    The commercial is such a joke. It’s as fake and terrible as dewars, so I guess it’s appropriate. They should have gone with an actual Scottish person opposed to a fake actress.

  3. Diamondblue777 says:

    Aww no way! The commercials are awesome, the chick is crazy sexy. I’ve seen her in something, cant place it, but its a great campaign. makes me want to drink scotch, And i don’t even drink.

  4. Cheryl says:

    Claire Forlani. Meet joe black movie

  5. Robert says:

    I just googled this an your site came up. I would say she doesn’t sound Scottish. My mother, aunts, and cousins are Scottish women and they sound nothing like her (though they are all equally, if not more so, strikingly beautiful.). I think she might sound Welsh, maybe.

    • Robert II says:

      Heck, some parts sound Irish. Understand about the faux Scottish burr. I think if we Yanks were exposed to a real one, we wouldn’t understand one word!

      My parents were born and bred in Ireland, so I figured I understood it all. But when I got to Ireland and was exposed to the real “bog language,” I was at a complete loss. I thought my relatives were speaking Irish!

      • Sapper25 says:

        My wife and I went to Scotland for vacation and it took me about three days even get close to understanding what they were saying. Their accents were so thick my wife basically had to translate for me, lol.

        Anyway, the point is, her accent sounds fake to me and she’s seems to be trying to make it sound so thick that it’s almost annoying.

  6. Zenkibo says:

    Knew it was Claire Forlani right away. But, man! She’s looking old.

  7. john prester says:

    When I saw bits of NCIS with her & Chris O’Donnell, I instantly remembered Meet Joe Black 1998. Didn’t look like she aged much at all till this commercial. But still looks sexy at 40 though ridiculously fake accent in this commercial. But in the movies & NCIS, sounds like any ordinary white Californian chic, no Euro accent.

  8. jd says:

    Come on people!! Mall Rats she was in Mall Rats! Let me run it down if you don’t remeber; a Kevin Smith flic, Jay and Silent Bob, Jason London, Jason Lee, Jennifer Tilly, Ben Afflec…

  9. JeffB says:

    I assumed she was Irish and likely a member of the IRA. She certainly seems cold and hard and more than willing to place a bomb under someone’s car.

  10. Geo says:

    Mmmmm Claire Forlani…. Yes please!

  11. Asmara says:

    Ooo I think she is stunning, at first I was like Hmmmm nah, but the second time I saw the commercial I was captivated by her beauty

  12. pammy says:

    The mystery woman played in ‘Mystery Men’ – lol.

    She has always been beautiful.

  13. ed says:

    at least she used a glass ;)
    and as for ‘serious’ drinker –whats with all that ice? :P

    • AliLongworth says:

      Well, it IS Dewer’s; only improved with some watering down.
      Is it just me or does she seem really pissed off at Angus?

    • Sapper25 says:

      It’s blended! Watered down with ice is the only way anyone could choke down blended Scotch Whiskey. A good 18yr Single Malt on the other hand, now ice in that would be considered a sin to some. :)

  14. Willy says:

    I believe she was on the show “24″ with Keifer Sutherland???? Perhaps?

  15. edward1066 says:

    claire forlani smoking hot one of her best performances the accent is as real as my wifes (west side glasgow) its a shame that shes an english wanker lol if i didnt already have a beatiful scottish lass i would have too take a chance on her again to bad she english another reason to drink dewars god bless the scots

  16. section9 says:

    AW CRAP!

    Now you bastards are going to tell me that James Doohan and Simon Pegg aren’t really True Scotsmen playing Mr. Scott in Star Trek?

    The woman is a Brit? Next thing you’ll tell me is that she grew up in the West End and hung around Sloane Square….

    All my dreams are now crushed.

  17. emin9t says:

    In America there was a long standing rule that you would not show actors actually drinking on a commercial. I guess the FTC doesn’t give a damn anymore. CHEERS.

  18. Bubba says:

    WTF I drink to forget about my “Old lady” now I have to be reminded of an old woman evertime I open a bottle of booze! Noooooooo!!!

  19. coby says:

    so you have a chick drinking the drinking man’s scotch? i understand sex appeal but think about it

  20. Shari Belmer says:

    I recognized her right away as “Peyton” from CSI:NY. The Medical Examiner who was Mac’s love interest.

  21. Bill says:

    She may be English (they’re all Brits) and she may be 40, but she’s good-looking, enticing, and can sell whisky. After all, look at the publicity she’s already generated.

    That name almost sounds Italian.

  22. Daniel says:

    Yes thats who i thought it was and i personally think Claire Forlani is hot even at her age. Hate to break this to you guys but TV is fake even those so called reality tv shows.

  23. Kris says:

    She may be English, but at least her husband is Scottish. :)

  24. Drew says:

    The Botox in her lips is not looking so good. I’m sure she’s decent looking but they sure didn’t do a good job of portraying that.

  25. Kevin says:

    It’s a really bad commercial, you can barely understand what she says, she was attractive years ago but no longer is, and the cracking of the bottle sounds like cracking brittle bones. These comments have shown me an embarrassingly large amount of people do not know what bold means.

  26. Bob Bitchen says:

    She’s married to a Scottish actor. Probably got the accent down from him and his family.

    I don’t know about the commercial…I’ve always thought she was super elegant in a fragile sort of way. That commercial makes her seem like she would do you and then kill you. A little scary but there are worse ways to go, for sure.

  27. MrGetitdone says:

    She is so damn sexy…

  28. Rotten Scotty says:

    A fake Scots’ accent? She’s sexy in an odd way. But, the stupid line at the end re “Angus” is….stupid. And, Dewar’s does suck, as do most blended Scotches.

  29. Rotten Scotty says:

    How about a real Scottish lass? A real sexy and lovable beauty? Dr. Who’s Karen Gillan!! Put her own and I might even buy this blended Scotch.

  30. Velouria says:

    I thought it was Kelly MacDonald! And she’s a Scot also!

  31. A Scot says:

    I’m Scottish !

    She’s English with a truly terrible fake Scottish accent.

  32. bawls says:

    The accent is fake and this commercial is really annoying.

  33. Marushka says:

    I thought I had seen her before…. She was in “Meet Joe Black”, with Anthony Hopkins, and Brad Pitt

  34. DaveDaveDave says:

    As a Native Scot living in the States, I loathe this commercial. One, Dewars isn’t Scotch – It’s watered down whisky. Two, her accent is horrendous. The second commercial is even worse.

  35. xero says:

    MALLRATS! FRAK that’s been bugging me i knew i saw her in something but couldn’t place it

  36. Demarcus Frevert says:

    The concept and characters were initially introduced in two episodes of the CBS series JAG (season eight episodes “Ice Queen” and “Meltdown”). The show, a spin-off from JAG, premiered on September 23, 2003, on CBS. :-’.

    italian/britain, not to be all politically correct and shit, not to shabby for a lady over the hill

  38. Don Etheridge says:


  39. Dorothy Head says:

    While this woman is very attractive and I knew I’d seem her before, I knew she was NOT Scottish! I’m a Glaswegian who has lived in Texas for 42 years but I still know the real thing ( or fakes) when I hear it, don’t know much about Dewars, my family drinks single malts! I don’t during whiskey but I surely promote it!

  40. Kenneth B. says:

    She has played in a few episodes on NCIS LA & She also played on Starz Camelot! I think she is smoking Hott!

  41. JohnKnight says:

    She is beautiful! I immediately recognized her from the movie ” Meet Joe Black” starring Brad Pitt and Anthony Hopkins.

  42. Susan says:

    Very memorable from her CSI days. Sooo what if she’s not Scottish-she’s acting.

  43. Seamus McTool says:

    Claire Forlani is the girl from Mallrats. She’s still hot.

  44. Justine says:

    Screw all you haters! She’s gorgeous!! I do t drink at all and don’t care about the alcohol, but she is gorgeous!

  45. gemjunior says:

    OH GOD COME ON YOU GUYS! Are you serious? She is fuckin’ barking, woofin’, and I don’t understand not being totally turned OFF by her. I’m serious, I think that the abnormal plastic surgery faces always pushed on us by Hollyweird are changing our normal, healthy perception of beauty. There are hundreds of beauties in Scotland that haven’t ever been touched by a surgeon – real women with real accents. A pair of big tits and gorgeous body and lovely big hair (Tits On A Stick or even Hair On A Stick) does not a beauty make. Not to me – if the face isn’t attractive I can’t ever get past it. Her lips are crazy and she almost looks cross eyed. In fact she’s the image of a New York or Jersey Jewish Housewife Who Makes What For Dinner? Reservations!

  46. Elizabeth says:

    She is gorgeous… but she’s British.

    Shame on you Dewars! You should have honored Scotland.

    William Wallace is rolling over in his tomb.

  47. Jennifer Franklin says:

    Ironic that her accent is from the same fake playbook as the pretend Scottish valet /American actor character in Gosford Park. Has the same defects that tip off the downstairs stairs folk that his accent is not real. She must have seen the movie but missed that detail.

  48. Jomama says:

    Dewars doesn’t even adhere to Scotch Whisky Association (SWA) regulations. “The Highlander Honey label refers to the drink as a “blended Scotch whisky infused with natural flavors,” although the SWA does not permit the addition of flavouring to Scotch.” A fake scotch deserves a fake actress with a fake accent. “We have concerns that the labelling and promotion of Dewar’s Highlander Honey could distinguish the product more clearly from Scotch whisky,” a spokesperson for the SWA said. To me, she is not as attractive as a lot of Scottish women I have seen.

  49. Judy says:

    As a Scot, every time I see this commercial I cringe. Her attempted accent is awful.

  50. Jennifer says:

    She is not attractive whatsoever. On top of that, she is extremely annoying. And her forced sexuality is too much. These commercials make me cringe.

  51. Linoge says:

    She’s gorgeous…fantastic eyes. Check her out in the movie The Rock…she plays Sean Connery’s daughter.

  52. Rick says:

    You really do this lady an injustice, there is a much better way to use this lady’s beauty to promote your product.

  53. John says:

    guess americans are too used to Miley-Mall-Whores
    Ms. Dewars iz the hottest act on TV

  54. Rick N says:

    Malrats FTW!

  55. Steve O says:

    Classy and gorgeous. European women would NEVER do the Miley trash.

  56. Kermit says:

    Yes, she scared me when I watched the first few of these commercials. But I find her crazy attractive. ” Go back to bed, Angus darling.”

  57. Lexagon says:

    She’s gorgeous, the accent and commercial are bad. It’s the thing about “Angus” that makes me hit the mute button though, it’s embarrassingly stupid.

  58. Josh says:

    You were surprised that her accent is fake??? Because it sounds fake as hell. From the way she says seriously differently (and both times awful I might add) to the fragmented way she talks… This is literally one of the dumbest commercials on television. SERIOUSLY.
    Great…shes a hot woman with a bottle of scoth. But who the hell is this Angus guy and what does the dialogue have to do with drinking scotch? Just a ridiculous commercial and I cringe whenever its on.
    And I recognized her immediately from Meet Joe Black

  59. Bob says:

    annoying commercial. She comes across as a stuck up ice queen with a fake annoying accent, ‘Seriously. She looks old-woman anorexic. At least she’s ready to take life seriously and drink some liquor.

  60. Jmay504 says:

    I’d dewar!!! lol cmon ppl i cant believe no one said it

  61. Dawn DuBois says:

    Incredibly bad commercial. She looks and sounds like a drunken crazy women.
