I love seeing ‘barriers’ like this ‘broken’. See NZ Herald report: Milestone on hold for the Wizard of Oz which tells us “Jay Laga’aia says the Wizard is a huge deal for him, and he is the first Polynesian to portray the iconic character.”
Yeah. Go Jay. I’ll like it even more when the race of a particular actor playing a particular role has no ‘news’ impact whatsoever. Roll on that day. In the meantime, great.
