Malaysia-born Memoirs Of A Geisha
star Michelle Yeoh
has hit out at criticism regarding her casting in a Japanese role, as she insists all that matters is talent.
The 43-year-old screen beauty is bemused by critics who have questioned the decision to use Chinese and Malaysian stars in the drama. She says, "The actors were chosen because of their suitability to the characters. It's the same as an English actor playing a German or an American. So it seems strange to me when you say, 'Why are you playing Japanese?' Why? Because I'm am actor!"
