Fringe Actress Jasika Nicole Talks Racism Endured on Show, Racist Joke About Astrid's Name



Jasika Nicole played Astrid on the sci-fi series from 2008 to 2013.
She addressed a running joke on the show that she felt was “tasteless,” “bullying,” and “racist.”
Walter played by John Noble was never able to get Astrid’s name right.

Nicole shared details about her experience on the set, including how she did not get the same perks as her other co-stars like getting rides to work, while a producer allegedly lied to her about the inequity.

She noted that certain directors on the show refused to get her real-life name right, getting support from co-star Joshua Jackson.
