Last quote by Vera Chok

The actor’s decision to turn down a Japanese-American role in Hellboy is an inspiring protest against the invisibility of Asian people in the media. This is what could have happened: white actor Ed Skrein does the job he was offered, plays a character of Japanese-American heritage in Hellboy, Asians are once again whitewashed out of the media and deep-seated racial bias in Hollywood continues to have real-life consequences – from unfair to downright violent – right here in Britain. This glitzy Hollywood news isn’t simply another casting announcement, it has serious repercussions.feedback
