corrie mackenzie

how to respond when people inevitably have a problem with corrie being indigenous:

-official artwork from the books in the 90s depict ellie with blonde hair. but people have no problem with ellie having brown hair in the movies and series.

-jon prasida, the actor who plays lee in the tv series, is indonesian, whereas lee was chinese and vietnamese in the books.

-fi canonically has blonde hair in the books but its widely accepted that madeleine clunies-ross will be great as fi

-all the main characters were 16 in the books, except for kevin who was 17. they have aged all the characters up to 17-19 years old in both the movie and series.

so people who complain that corrie being aboriginal is a disservice to the original series. shut the fuck up, you’ve never had a problem with the actors looking different before.
