"Intelligent Thinking" Needed Around Casting


Suranne Jones has spoken about her recent role as Anne Lister in lesbian themed drama series “Gentleman Jack”, screened on BBC-1 this spring and an instant classic. Jones, said the “I” Newspaper, said that there was often a hostility towards a straight person playing an LGB or T character. She said that people should “think more intelligently” about the issue and noted that there were also a great number of LGBT people working behind the scenes in the form of directors, writers and technical staff.
