Alexander Siddig (Dr. Bashir from Star Trek Deep Space 9) on things that matter


Starbase972: What reviews did the movie receive so far?
Alexander: Mostly terrible reviews – one or two have been quite dramatic or hysterical. A lot focus has been on the casting of an Indian woman to play a Palestinian. I find it hard to understand the obsession some critics have with this kind of racial authenticity. In Star Trek we had to cast hundreds of aliens, we were never criticized for casting ordinary humans in these roles.

😀 :D:D Don’t you just love him?

Actually, the rest of the interview is about more serious matters, including his view of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It was an interesting read from a Muslim/Arab POV.
