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.
Because of the massive amount of old age makeup on Spiner for the Soong role, I didn't even realize until "Birthright" that Data was supposed to resemble a young Soong.
