The reason it bothers me is because people don’t have an issue with Australian actors playing American parts and English actors playing Polish parts. I don’t have an issue with Margot Robbie playing those parts because she’s terrific and she’s the right person. So why can’t an Asian person play an Asian part? It doesn’t match up.
If I can’t play that part, what can I play? A part that’s half Japanese, a quarter English, and a quarter Argentinian? How many parts are there for that? It’s hard enough as it is.
