Do American actors need to play down/eliminate their regional accents on TV in America?

I ask this because I saw an interview with Sela Ward on YT who I know well from various TV dramas over the years and was surprised to hear she had quite a strong southern (she's from Mississippi) accent.

It made me wonder if it would have been a requirement that she drop her accent to get work.
