1Xtra Talks with Richie Brave
Representation on screen
Monday, 9 March
Reece is talking representation on screen with Zack Morris aka Keegan Baker from EastEnders, 'Noughts + Crosses' actors Masali Baduza (Sephy) and Jack Rowan (Callum) plus theatre and short film actress Julene Robinson.
This year’s Bafta Awards called for changes to make the nominations more inclusive, after no actors of colour were included in any of the major acting categories.
However the Creative Diversity Network’s Diamond Survey suggests that ethnic minorities and gay people are significantly over represented on British television.
Do we need to call for a BAME awards night? Is being type cast bad? Is there still room for improvement and whose responsibility is it anyway?
