Why is it that in 2019 we are still using facial scarring as a device for villainy? Is it ethical to be calling upon real people with distinctive faces to play a role that is seen as scary, inhuman and nasty?
What sort of perception does this create for young people when they think of someone with a disfigurement?
Join us in our call to the producers of the new Lord of the Rings Amazon TV series to rethink the way that this perpetuates harmful stereotypes and impacts the lives of people with facial differences.
Please share widely, and help us to banish this damaging trope.
