“I’m just curious: It’s not because of artistic reasons, it’s because of a lack of diversity, that this can’t compete in that competition. Are you worried about it?”

Mads Mikkelsen turned the question back to the reporter, asking if the reporter had concerns about the movie’s diversity. Mikkelsen wanted the reporter’s perspective on the issue The movie’s director then joined the discussion, clarifying that the film is set in 1750s Denmark. The director emphasized that the movie includes an important storyline featuring a girl of color experiencing racism, which was rare during that historical period due to the scarcity of people of color in Denmark. This explanation aimed to offer context for the limited diversity in the cast.
