We also get to deal in the fantastical the magical the surreal. Obviously, like budget is it's always a factor. I have certainly worked on shows that have like twelve hundred dollar budget and shows that have seven hundred fifty thousand dollar budget. It can be punishing limitation, or it can be helpful limitation and having an understanding of Konami in the world does, have relationship to like actual, you know, the economy of theater because you sort of know that, like, however, big, you're dreaming about it. Like that thing has to fit into this kind of this kind of. I think people come into design from a lot of different places, and certainly.

Goes just just to talk about your family again and I just wanted to you reconcile you ship with you dad before he passed away, kind of. Kind of lesson him. He just got to point where I was just getting on with it, and the phone was ringing not more than ever had had lights of how how you doing. I'm fine. After how long was this? That was my whole time at drama school to the three years speaking. We spoke bit. We spoke a bit to coinc- your Nathan. Oh my God. Yeah, he can't. So thirty. Okay. This is a point. I think this is the point that died that so of I want my family to being -cluded in in this thing he came onto the special time and every you mean everyone's parents. Exactly. And I was very aware. I think the thing that might even worse was my boyfriend at the time was in my year drama school. So his parents would just always seeing him and stuff, and I was meeting them and and they will love lovely people. And it just made me go. I don't have somebody to introduce you to try to invite my dad to offer show which was. Restoration, comedy man of mode and accord amid best times, don't understand restoration, comma, dates, member, you know, it was a really big thing. Dad, I'm going to get your tickets going to be at the box office. This is where the school is, and yet come along. And I thought we just wouldn't get anything shit. He came out and he king loved it. He loved it. And you know why? Because it's old world e- English in it. It is academic brain to understand that and to execute it. So he was just, oh, that was yeah, I was on union Goldstone weather. Then I invite into my next show. So I'm like, oh, my go. Maybe my dad is going to be finally proud of me. Next show, which was a who'd four by Christopher Shinn. It's not particularly explicit. See when I had to smoke a sky my year and basically repeat trousers off and then come on top of him. And then it goes to black as by taken Cho's and. I didn't think about that because I was so proud of the play really time, and it was only the four of us doing this play and. Yeah, it was good work. If it was really good work, I just didn't put tune to together an off towards going out to the bar. And my dad's face was don't cold. He didn't say anything to turn to leave the building. I thought your, I didn't say anything until we got to gauge street station. They turned to me just like you are a whole. Is like, how can we knew my boyfriend at the time as well, and he was just, how can you what you do that do that with another man like so you couldn't separate yet. And then I thought that's last time. That's inviting to anything we didn't even have. I can even have an with them. I just thought I didn't think about that about like doing new parents. I just thought that they'd be right with it forever reason. And yeah, that was a really big as a big shock. I was a really big shock. Yeah, and I feel I'm just, I don't wanna ever come off stage and have to deal with that anymore. I'm not sure what he did come and say, you did come and see apply, did pay cool and. It's my first pain, London, and I done like done the void exchange, Manchester Manchester, and, but don't let quite low telly. And after coming out drama school, this is the point where I to pop pop up on TV and he season. You didn't tell us your Hopi city. You've made it, and I was going to do with you. And yet she turned up to play though it did the recall and I'm being so nervous actresses in the play when we Misako is one of them and I was having a panic attack dad text. I'm outside.

"Of this happening with black actors let the actors in particular asian actors or actors of color more broadly or women who get pigeonholed right because of their race and into types of roles and we can talk about what those at another segment is supposed but do disabled actors run the risk of also being pigeonholed into certain roles as they become more part of the actor community i think you know what's tricky about film and tv and theater to an extent to is a combination of fan in reality there's a riyadi to human experience but in worth of art represent reality there's a element of pleasure there's an element of fantasy that's why for instance traditionally good looking actors are cast in leading roles more than people who aren't traditionally goodlooking so you know i try to understand that there's never going to be perfect representation that's just not how this industry works there's always going to be an element of fantasy about it but i think you know with disabled characters in general hollywood is tended to either create the kind of inspiration redemption narrative that we see in the oscar movies or disabled characters tend to be villains and i think audiences are are prime to see the disability experiences one of those two things and i think it will be very difficult to kind of train audiences to see disabled people in without that dichotomy it somewhere in the middle of complex human experience and lit about in terms of who's writing these scripts there's often a conversation of if you are a person of color you probably understand you know that experience more than say white person who's writing the role for person of color does that also translate to the abled community in meaning that if you are not disabled yourself should you even attempt to write about an experience that you are not intimately familiar with yeah i mean i think that kind of stuff can only help you know to use a more kind of prosaic example and you're writing a cop drama you're going to you're going to spend a lot of time with cops you're going to hang out with cops you know just like any actor who's gonna play a navy seal they're going to they're going to go through some kind of you know quasi navy seal training and get a they hire a drill instructor to come in and yell at them for a few days and so they can get the they get the feeling you know there is a sense i think in movies that they tried to immerse themselves as much as they can on their schedule to kind of get a sense of the realism of whatever situation group atmosphere time period even that they're working in but yeah i do think that kind of stuff is important i don't know how much rawson marshall thurber who is the director and writer of skyscraper i don't know how much time he necessarily spent with amputees or not what i liked about that role is that he just kind of thought of that as something to put in there and then just kind of dealt with it but i do think clearly having having someone with experience is always going to be helpful onset for your last thoughts on that if people only wrote their direct experience we would have a much emptier pop culture it's really important that people feel free to write about experiences outside their own but they have to do so responsibly rafer guzman is film critic for newsday and the takeaway christopher shinn is a playwright whose two thousand six played dying city will be revived off broadway next season at second stay to new york city rafer christopher thank you so much for being with us thank you thank you and we have to run that's our show for today thanks so much for listening i'm tansy vega and this is the takeaway.

"Issue that he or she is tempting to play if they are not disabled obviously i think it's really important that you know if a nondisabled actors playing disabled character that they're really working hard they're doing the research they're talking to people in a really deep meaningful way i think really if you have you know a disabled character being played by nondisabled actor you wanna feel the on the creative team there are disabled people whether it's director or writers or you know that it's not just a consultant who maybe comes in for a few days but that there's somebody who's really a part of the collaboration i think that's the most important thing because we all know big movie stars are gonna be headlining big hollywood movies and there are no big disabled movie stars yet so until that time i think that the most we can expect and demand is really important contribution from disabled people throw the whole life of the movie from the beginning till the last day of shooting i'm speaking with film critic rafer guzman and playwright christopher shinn about how hollywood portrays characters with disabilities rafer you also saw don't worry he won't get far on foot with joaquin phoenix tell us a little bit about how that film compares to the character with disabilities that we see in skyscraper it's interesting because this is more of your typical kind of awards bait you know this is a more standard treatment of what you see with a person with a disability on film it's bio pic it's a drama it's about a guy who was walked or for most of his life in the nez you said was disabled in a car crash and then you know we go through the the the stages as we usually do of you know dealing with this dealing with this thing how you're going to get over it how he winds up finding happiness and cetera et cetera and like you say you've got a big critically acclaimed actor joaquin phoenix in the role which all says to me oscar may or may not happen so so it's funny that you have this one film that is more of that you would expect a more sensitive dramatic traditional treatment but on the other hand i also just say again the skyscraper movie even though it has a splat on rotten tomatoes at the moment and you know it's not getting exactly a lot of critical acclaim in some ways i found its treatment of a person with a disability much more refreshing than than he won't get far and foot which don't get me wrong i found was a fantastic film great performance from joaquin phoenix but the skyscrapers film almost seems like a little bit more of a landmark movie to me so why don't you talk a little bit about representation of the disabled community on television in advertising i'm noticing it a little bit more are we on the right track with this type of representation do we need more to you you both the i mean i do think that television in particular is probably more responsive to these kinds of things i've often thought you know movies are just simp on a slower production scale and television can be a lot quicker to respond to current events cultural trends whatever's kind of happening in the guys to use an overused word but you know movies are a little bit behind on that topic but i do think that movies are catching up and you know i think they are trying to diversify their casts and i think they're doing again in movie in movie terms and relative terms i think they're doing a pretty good job of it yeah i mean i think it doesn't feel like a new crop of disabled actors are becoming really famous there's a few here and there but i think that is my biggest concern because you know when we get into these big movies with lead roles we all know that they have to go to famous actors until there are famous disabled actors they're going to be played by nondisabled people but that development of a community of disabled actors who can grow into stars i think that's really important and so far i haven't really seen that in a in a big way on tv that was going to be my next question to you is how do you begin to change that because as we see for example and onto pile on one actor but scarlett hanson has been caught in the crossfire of playing now a.
