Nina Was Always a Minority, Even in Her Own Family

The star of Last Tango in Halifax and W1A discussed portraying outsiders, growing up surrounded by white faces, and what it was like to be killed off as she was getting ready to participate in the Young Chekhov trilogy over an interview with Guardian.

“Mmm. Growing up, I was always the minority in the room, even in my own immediate family, who were all white,” said in an interview.

It became normal for her to see white faces everywhere. She remembered a young black woman once saying to her, “How do you see yourself?”

The actress facetiously replied, “With a mirror.” The woman was quite angry at that time.

“I’ve always referred to myself as ‘mixed race,’ but apparently, that’s not correct anymore. But to call myself ‘black’ would be to deny my mother,” she explained.

“There are so many boxes you can put yourself in, and the part of the Venn diagram where they overlap is probably who you are.”
