so in some posts you said that you think that an actor's race doesn't matter, but their ability to act instead. what do you think of representation then? the fact that it is rarer for people to see more diverse main characters that look like them compared to the overabundance of white characters in media? thats why some people were unhappy I think, its not fun to see an uncommon character that represents your race be replaced with something you can see everyday
What I’m saying is, if an actor it’s chosen over someone that could do more justice to the part just because of their race, isn’t that a pity?
I mean certain roles need a certain race because it’s one particular trait of the character itself, but with a role like Michael it doesn’t matter so you can choose the better one.
The representation is a very delicate issue, it depends on the decision of who is making the casting, but still I wouldn’t choose people because “their looks would please the audience” over “their acting would please the audience”.
Woah today I’m making risky statements, alright
