Good fight Cush: UK’s not diverse
FILM star Cush Jumbo has claimed Britain is losing some of its most talented actors because of a refusal to embrace diversity in television and film.
The actress, 31, believes the UK is producing formidable talent – but a failure to offer them work means they end up being offered roles in the United States.
The Good Fight star accused drama schools of squeezing out budding actors from a diverse or working class background by failing to provide enough support.
She said: “I didn’t go to America, I didn’t run to America, I didn’t even ask for America, I just took a plane there and suddenly everyone was telling me you’re so talented would you like 52 jobs.”
London-born Cush (above) accused Britain of “pulling the plug” on its talent and claimed black British stars were winning roles in the US over their American counterparts because “we are better”.
