Last quote by David Harewood

Perhaps it's precisely because we are not real American brothers that we black British performers have the ability to unshackle ourselves from the burden of racial realities – and simply play what's on the page, not what's in the history books.feedback

The most recent quote attributed to David Harewood came from an article called Samuel L Jackson is my hero. But he’s wrong about us British actors: “You don’t have to be a ‘brother’ to play African American roles. In fact, sometimes it helps that we can unshackle ourselves from the burden of US racial history. A couple of weeks ago at the Film Independent Spirit awards in Los Angeles I met one of my all-time acting heroes, Samuel L Jackson. He was sitting on the table directly behind me, and as I was nominated in the best male lead category I thought, if I haven’t got the balls to go up and introduce myself on a night like this I never will.”.
