No it wasn't. Peter Jurasik's often said that he invented the accent on his own with no suggestions from production.

It never occurred to me that the Centauri could be anything but Roman, with Cartagia being a variation on Caligula.

For his accent, I'd lean towards generalized Euro trash. If I had to pin it down, it's vaguely Romanian, Count Dracula sounding to me, with a little Russian thrown in for seasoning.

Thats interesting Jan, I wonder if anyone asked Peter what the accent was meant to be if anything?

Re: EpDis: By Any Means Necessary

it's been a long time and I don't think I'd be able to find the source as it was in an interview but if I recall correctly, he had recently been turned down for a part requiring an accent because whatever it was didn't sound right. So he devised the Londo accent from a number of elements on the theory that nobody could tell him that his accent didn't sound Centauri.

I always thought there was some Prussian influence too.
