I think it’s bad when a man cannot be part of a play at a theater no matter what skin colour he or she has. However a man, with a Swedish name, but Indian looking looks, got, according to Aftonbladet.se, threats. They said that he was destroying the Strindberg legacy for being part of the play.
I think that anyone should be able to play any role in any play. I don’t mind if different ethnic looks play traditionally Swedish parts. What is the problem? It’s the acting that is the important thing, not the colour of the skin.
I think it’s so sad. The Indian looking actor has a Swedish name and I am guessing he is Swedish and might be adopted or partly Swedish. It’s sad that some people cannot accept that people have different ethnic looks.
