She further addressed the associations across the industry, expressing that inclusivity and diversity are essential when one wants to see different faces from various parts of the world, speaking in different accents but all part of the same story, telling it in the same language.

“At the end of the day, story should be at the forefront not where you come from or what accent you speak. What your ethnicity is or which part of the world you come from,” she remarked.

Making her stance clear, the actress expressed her belief that it depends on whether she fits the part or not.

She said: ‘Do you fit the part? That’s the most important question. I don’t think I fit every part, you know, so sometimes…and I’m working on a lot of stuff right now, which I’m not acting in. In fact, that I see other mainstream actresses in as well while we are creating them. I’m like, ‘Oh, this will be great for this one’…or actors.’
