Be sure to take a look at this extraordinary compilation of clips showing off the astonishing versatility of a actor Cliff Curtis. And I love his comment on being cast as characters of so many different ethnicities in an interview with Slate’s June Thomas.
“I take the responsibility of playing another ethnicity very, very seriously,” he says, “and I promise myself and those people that I will represent them with as much dignity and integrity as I can muster. I’m not fooling around. I don’t want to make a fool of that cultural heritage. I represent them as I would represent my own.”
