I’ve never yet in my whole career played a role that’s true to my upbringing, my background and where I come from. It’s important to diversify if you’re lucky enough to get the opportunity to play a spectrum of characters. I didn’t go to drama school, I’m learning on the job. That’s seen as a dirty phrase – you’re supposed to come fully equipped – but how are you supposed to unless you get to learn in each environment?

Who am I?
Do you mean… where I’m from?
What I one day might become?
What I do? What I’ve done?
What I dream?
Do you mean… what you see? What you see or what I’ve seen?
What I fear or what I dream?
Do you mean who I love?
Do you mean what I’ve lost?
WHO AM I?
I guess who I am is exactly the same as who you are.
Not better than. Not less than.
Because there is no one who has been or will ever be exactly the same as either you or me.

Sense8 canceled by Netflix after 2 seasons

“After 23 episodes, 16 cities and 13 countries, the story of the Sense8 cluster is coming to an end,” Cindy Holland, VP Netflix original content, said in the statement. “It is everything we and the fans dreamed it would be: bold, emotional, stunning, kick ass, and outright unforgettable.

Holland goes on to express the importance of the series. “Never has there been a more truly global show with an equally diverse and international cast and crew, which is only mirrored by the connected community of deeply passionate fans all around the world. We thank Lana, Lilly, Joe and Grant for their vision, and the entire cast and crew for their craftsmanship and commitment.”
