Slasher actress Sydney Ozerov-Meyer reveals what it’s like to be mixed race – but white passing



Sydney Ozerov-Meyer is playing her mixed race ethnicity for the first time.
She plays Livina ‘Liv’ Vogel, in the hit horror series Slasher: Flesh and Blood.
Liv is the daughter of Patricia, who is a Black woman, it means Liv is mixed race.

Sydney's dad is Black and from South Africa. He came to Canada
Her mother is from the UK and moved to Canada.

Being a white passing actress with mixed heritage has been conflicting for Sydney, on the one hand, she wants to remain true to her ethnicity but also doesn’t want to take away roles from actresses who are more visibly of colour. 

Sydney doesn’t want to ‘hurt’ other actors by taking these roles but, at the same time, feels frustrated that she doesn’t get to ‘live her culture’.
