While we wait for the season, fans are being given tons of interviews from the stars of the series and the latest interview is with Lorraine Toussaint who plays Viola on the show.
Lorraine recently shared her experience with a white director who made her feel uncomfortable via PageSix.
“I’m almost tempted to name his nasty little name. He’s one of those big directors,” Lorraine, who grew up in Trinidad, told Page Six in an interview at the Alvin Ailey Spirit Gala.
“I went to audition for a role. It was for a Caribbean role. He happened to be Caucasian and American. He said, ‘Your Caribbean accent is not authentic. Let me show you how to do it.’
The actress revealed that the director went on to “bastardize and butcher the Jamaican dialect.” She shared that at the end of the audition, the director told her, “I can’t really tell what your body is like with all those clothes on.’
Wow this is very disgusting and we can’t believe all the things Black actresses have to go through working in Hollywood.
