If our lives are indeed the sum total of the choices we've made, then we cannot change who we are. But with every new choice we're given, we can change who we're going to be.

Before we allow ourselves to be consumed by our regrets, we should remember the mistakes we make in life are not so important as the lessons we draw from them.

Context:
Season 3, Episode 4, "Last Supper," which originally aired on January 31, 1997. This was the ending quote by the show's Narrator (Kevin Conway), after an episode that centered on the girlfriend (Sandrine Holt) of a young man in college (Fred Savage). When the student brings his new love interest home to meet his parents, his father (Peter Onorati) recognizes her as the same woman he rescued from cruel experiments when he was a private in the army 20 years prior. He also had an affair with the woman after the rescue.

It is clear that representing this character in a culturally accurate way holds significance for people, and that to neglect this responsibility would continue a worrying tendency to obscure ethnic minority stories and voices in the Arts. I feel it is important to honour and respect that.

Context:
Skrein responded to backlash against his casting in the Hellboy franchise reboot by relinquishing the role he had been cast in. The 34-year-old British actor has earlier tweeted that he would be playing Major Ben Daimio, a character that was Asian American in Mike Mignola’s “Hellboy” comics. The news was met with complaints that Hollywood was once again “whitewashing” an Asian character.

But don't let appearances fool you, they can be as fierce as any dragon. Yet they're not here to fight our battles, but to whisper from our heart. Reminding that it's us.
