It’s just that I’m Canadian, and it’s more cost-efficient to film sci-fi up here. I also don’t have a face that lends itself to period pieces because I’m ethnically diverse. You go back as little as a hundred years ago and you were Scottish, or Scottish and Irish maybe. You weren’t Indo-Caribbean-Japanese-African-Latino. It’s just not something that came up and if it did, it was pretty rare. Now if you’re ethnically diverse, it serves you better to just be a human being. It’s all moving that way, anyway.

    I’m not sure she refered to herself when she said “Indo-Caribbean-Japanese-African-Latino” in that quote. I think she’s just saying that many people today are descended from more than one or two ethnicities.
