Hey you mentioned Original Jason was part native american? Do you have any source? I've been looking for it but I couldn't find it. TIA
Everything I’ve ever read about Austin St. John says “Austin is of German, Native American, Irish, Japanese, Italian and Spanish decent” And you can find that consistently through any search. I have never been able to find him specify a tribe through.
It was something we always talked about as a kid, especially because we recognized the race/color coding immediately.
I’ll never forget about the interview the original Zordon actor, David Fielding, gave where he admitted to being fired, said he called the actors slurs and said horrible horrible racist and homophobic things on set all the time. Admitted to greeting Austin St. John with “How!” all the time and put warbonnets on the helmet. I tried really really hard to find this interview or at least find a good source for you guys but I think it’s been archived and disappeared so here’s what I can offer: (x)
I know it was the season “Power Rangers Zeo” where suddenly they made a huge deal about TOMMY being Native American, which his actor is not (Jason David Frank). I feel like he visited a reservation and that’s how he found out about his roots and they talked about it almost every freakin episode. That was also the same season Tommy became the new Red Ranger. GO FIGURE! Yeah, my cousins and I talked about this show a LOT lol
