Jameela Jamil reveals why she turned down role of deaf woman
Jameela Jamil has revealed she turned down the role of a deaf woman because she did not want to deprive a disabled actress of a job.
I feel very passionately about this, about making sure we all take on the fight to demand more roles for minorities, especially for LGBTQ and disability, so that we can continue to see on screen what we are living amongst in this world.
“I said it wouldn’t be appropriate for me to take that role and they should find a brilliant deaf woman to play that role. I think you have to make those choices and not be too greedy and make space rather than take space.” Thanks,
