The difference here is that it's not a fictional character in a made up drama - it's a drama portraying a real historical figure. She was white, and cannot, given the well recorded history of the Tudors,then and thereafter, be portrayed as anything else with any credibility.

It's as unbelievable (even within the suspension of reality that all dram requires) as a white man playing Nelson Mandela or Desmond Tutu in a drama about apartheid.

It's the stand out point.

For those out there who genuinely would have no comment about a white actor playing Nelson Mandela then I have no issues with them. They are colour blind and while I think it's unusual it's well meaning and consistent.

I can see the argument that it's a fresh take and it's obviously not trying to be historical..... then if that's the genuine intent then I have no objection....the artist must be allowed their flair. In the past white actors played non white characters and while there was huge complaint I think that was also innocent......So really it's about intent.....Do I trust them on that? Nope...not as far as I could throw them....it's done to be controversial and and get views because non white playing white will be praised by the people they care about....whereas the colour reverse would be criticised.

In the US they have zeroed in on the actor being from the same background and the politics of these people varies very little from the 'woke' running our media and entertainment in the UK.

So, I think we can pretty well be certain that if a white guy was playing a well known non white figure then both the media and 'diversity' activists would be shouting from the hilltops and the people involved would find it difficult getting jobs.

Idris Elba will be doing the biopic of 1980s Gerry Adams.

and just to make it all the more believable, he will be wearing flares as he strides the barricades on the Falls Road.

Superb.

Back in the 80's there was a marvellous little C4 sitcom called Little Armadillos. A young Daniel Peacock did a sketch where he played Gandhi to protect Mr Patel at the local corner shop.
As he triumphantly exited the scene he said "Remember - at 2:30 in the morning you can only buy white bread from a brown man."
I wonder if it's due for a rerun?
