Ok, so I haven’t been a great fan of the title of Channel 4’s Seven Dwarves, however tonight’s episode has been exceptionally good. This week following, Laura Whitfield from Sunderland and her poignant story of having lost her mum and her problems growing up and the obstacles that she’s overcome to turn her life around.
One thing that I was nodding in agreement a lot at was her aspirations to have a main role. Regular readers will know that this is something I really wish for the actors and performers who are of restricted growth… and I sincerely hope that that does happen in the near future for Laura and all the other shorter actors.
My main disappoint of the evening has been following the Twitter hastag #sevendwarves and some of the idiotic comments that just go to show, we are *still* seen as dwarf first, human second, well to some of the numpties. It makes me wonder, no matter how much programming their is, however many awareness-raising campaigns that they are, will we ever be seen as something not different?
