Jessie Mei Li adresses the brown face situation on Shadow & Bone



the show used a white women in dark makeup for Inej's (Amita Suman) stunts

[Spoiler (click to open)]

twitter has been in an uproar over it and this is the first time anyone associated with the show talked about it (Jessie played Alina and has actually nothing to do with this /just to clarify)

- Jessie understands the issue, but admits that she wasn't aware of the problematic nature of it before since this is her first big acting job

- she thinks that stunt performance is a very specified field and due to the systematic racist nature of the industry itself it can be hard to find a perfect match for an actor

- she thinks it's great that so many people care that much
