Dwarfs express their fury at Snow White filmmakersJune 6th, 2012 - 9:47 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
Los Angeles, June 6 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Hollywood’s dwarf actors are reportedly threatening to protest against the new Snow White movie. LA dwarf theatre group Beacher’s Madhouse are very angry at the makers of the film.
The group has apparently sent a letter to Adam Fogelson, Universal’s chairman, where he threatens a march of dwarf actors to Universal’s offices. Another dwarf group The Little People of America also complained against what they see as discriminatory casting.
In the new fantasy blockbuster “Snow White and the Huntsman’, which will be starred by the South African actress Charlize Theron, the seven dwarves are played by the Irish actor Brian Gleeson and the British actors Ian McShane, Bob Hoskins, Toby Jones, Ray Winstone, Nick Frost and Johnny Harris.
Therefore, none of the sever actors actually suffer from dwarfism. The film’s director, Rupert Sanders, used special effects and camera angles to make these appear like dwarves.
In addition, they have digitally inserted their faces onto bodies of individuals of shorter height. The film offers an alternative take on the classic fairy tale Snow White. Despite the controversy, the motion picture has proved a box office hit.
