“Abbie Mills represented more than just another character in the show,” the actor told The Realistic Optimist during a roundtable conversation at London MCM Comic Con this weekend. “It wasn’t an easy decision for them to make. I know that. The writers, they like writing Abbie Mills. And I like acting with Nicole.”
He goes on to say...
“When you have a woman of color in the lead role, it’s not just a woman of color in the lead role. It immediately means so much more than that, across the whole of America,” Mison said. “There’s a woman of color in a position that not very long ago she wouldn’t have been. It comes to symbolize so much more. So when something like this happens, when they kill off said character, of course it’s going to mean an awful lot more, consequently.”
Seems like a heartfelt, tactful as hell response.
