I'm surprised at this whole thread, to be honest. I still don't understand the OP's accusation that the critic was "injecting" race into her review. This whole thing is ridiculous and ugly.
I never said I wasn't okay with him playing Jamie, I was discussing how the character was originally conceived.
Yes - over and over - and to what end? MANY characters who have been "originally conceived" one way have been played other ways and by very different types/races/ethnicities of actors. Ma nishtanah halailah hazeh? (in other words, why is this case so different?)
