This is so disappointing. I love Marissa Meyer. I love Cinder & Scarlet. I’ve been such a fan of hers for so long. She is a moonie and sent me a hand written card. I had fallen in love with her as a writer.

And then there came this…trailer for her book Cinder. The lead actress in the Cinder trailer is White. What’s the problem you say??? Well…Cinder takes place in New Bejiing in the future. The heroine’s name is Cinder Linh. Linh is a Vietnamese last name. Over 90% of those with the name Linh are Asian. Cinder, in the story, is undoubtedly Asian.

WHAT THE FUCK.

Oh, fer dammit.

Please if you’re going to make a post on this get the whole thing straight. 

Cinder is a retelling of Cinderella set in the future and of course Cinderella we all know has the evil stop mother. Cinders last name is not her own. It is the name of her adoptive father and if you had read the books you know that cinder isnt Undoubtedly Asian as she wasn’t born in Asia. 

Not defending the actress being white, but Cinder was never said to be Asian.

It would be nice to read this at least:

Please stop defending this. It’s the same argument that Suzanne Collins made for her protaganist not being Asian, Latino, or of a mixed decent that has olive skin with dark brown hair.

So while you’re right, she’s not “Undoubtedly Asian” the fact that she could “fit in” with New Beijing without people detecting what she really is said to me “Oh, she must be Asian looking enough to fit in.” This actress does not look MIXED or ASIAN or like she will fit-in in the Eastern Commonwealth which is a mixture of many different Asian races.

And this is such a great opportunity for the author & director to choose a POC to represent the character but no, they did not make that conscious decision which has bigger implications for the whitewashing in Hollywood than it is just the poor choice in casting.
