The new movie Snow White and the Huntsman
might be a smash at the box office, but it isn't a hit with everybody. Actors like Bob Hoskins and Ian McShane were cast as the band of dwarfs in the film, and special effects were used to shrink them down for the screen. Actor Danny Woodburn
says this is akin to black face.
Woodburn's career in the industry
spans 22 years. He portrayed Kramer's friend Mickey Abbott on Seinfeld
, and recently played a dwarf in another Snow White adaptation this year called Mirror Mirror
. He shares his thoughts on the issue, and stories from his experience as an actor with dwarfism.
