“The Lord of the Rings” renown Hollywood star Andy Serkis has defended actress Scarlett Johansson, who got dropped from the movie “Rub & Tug” in which she was going to essay a transgender following backlash from the LGBT community.
In a media chat, Serkis revealed, “Actors should be able to play anything, and that’s why I love performance capture technology. What should be the point is that whatever colour your skin is, whatever shape you are, whatever height you are, whatever your make-up is as an actor, you should have the ability to play anything.”
So, in the wake of the backlash, Johansson dropped out of the movie and a replacement is yet to be pronounced, reported in an entertainment portal.
