    • Boom!! Loved the podcast! I felt included in the podcast since I’m part of a visible minority because I’m born in Canada but with Salvadoran roots( if you were to see me you would think I’m filipina or indian or amerindian)!
      I could relate to what Lexa Doig went through not exactly of course but somewhat.
      I’ve been feeling a sort of discrimination since I was in elementary & high school:( but it has diminished in College which I’m happy!
      Can’t wait for the next podcast and listen more to the VMR!:)

    Finally finished this immensely entertaining podcast (interruptions and all!) and I have one question: how does Luvia feel when straight actors play gay characters? Not necessarily stereotypically, just in general.

      Wow… good question! I have played a straight character many times and as a responsible actress I check in with my “straight” colleagues to make sure I am being authentic as it is not a world I live in.

      That being said I am totally cool with it as long as the actor is being authentic and real. It’s our job to pretend so pretend really fricken well and I will love you for it. Check out the TV series “Queer as Folk” for a great example of straight actors playing gay men & women really really well!

      Thanks for listening!
