It's a shame really when the race card has to be played, indeed my favourite coloured actor is Woody Strode, but if you were making
a film of the English Civil War, you would not have a part for Woodrow! It's a cheap shot when the coloured actors harp on "is it 'cos I
is Black", indeed if there is discrimination, it is towards the older female actresses, age comes to us all, talent is like wealth, badly
shared out. There are some superb actresses on both sides of the Atlantic, but in many cases they are shelved, "to old for the part".
An example I will use is Dame Judy Dench, she was annoyed, as was I myself when she was written out of the "Bond " franchise, WHY? She excelled as M, if that isn't discrimination against women, I'll eat hay with a F'['##''; horse.
