Odo'ital: I don't see why a black actor/actress couldn't play an Andorian. We've seen actors of all races play Cardassians successfully, and they're also quite pale. (Though was it a trick of the light, or did they give Broca's skin a warmer grey hue than we usually saw?)
Maybe just trying to make the Cardassians seem unique to each other?
Possibly. But I don't know squat about the makeup process, so I have no idea as to the whys and wherefores. Somebody who actually knows what processes are used could easily tell us how it works.
You may be on to something, though, because I HAVE noticed Cardassians on occasion that have some of the features seen on the Trager
crew, though blended with the more revised style. (Though in my own stories, I decided to actually assume different ethnic groups. There is no reason why there shouldn't be.)
