Re: Patrick Stewart as Shinzon
Okay, granted. But it's still disappointing that a character who was conceived as Asian ended up played by a white actor, something that happens far too often in Hollywood. Indeed, it happened twice where Brent Spiner was concerned, since the original conception for Data was to have him look like an Asian or Pacific Islander.
And Yar was originally concieved a Latino character based off of a similar character in Aliens who was played a Jew, you're reaching to make a point. And did these revelations destroy your enjoyment of Data or Brothers either for that matter?
