In this interview, Dani Chambers and Lee George talk about what role anime has played in their lives. Both actors have been life-long fans of the medium, and getting the opportunity to take part in shows that inspire other anime fans is deeply meaningful, especially when it comes to turning "wishes" into "hopes" for aspiring actors of color. According to them, themes found throughout anime readily resonate with hip-hop culture and the American Black experience, and these stories have influenced changes of both self-perception on an individual level as well as for whole communities.
Their joy and love of the art is touching. It's wonderful to hear their perspectives on why anime is such an exciting and inviting medium, and how it has been leading the way in fostering more inclusivity in entertainment as it continues to grow in popularity and influence. As actors, Dani and Lee appreciate how it has given them more opportunities to act and play outside of themselves, which is vastly different from their experiences in theatre.
