Rachel Zegler | Rachel Zegler didn’t expect to land the role of Snow White

Rachel Zegler did not expect to play the role of “Snow White”.

The 20-year-old actress will star in Disney’s live-action remake of the iconic fairy tale and was stunned to have the opportunity to be an actress of Latin descent.

During a chat with Andrew Garfield for Variety’s ‘Actors on Actors’ series, Rachel said, “Never in a million years would I have imagined this would be a possibility for me.

“You don’t normally see a Snow White of Latin descent. Even though Snow White is really a big deal in Spanish-speaking countries. ‘Blancanieves’ is a huge icon, whether you’re talking about the Disney cartoon or just different iterations.and Grimm’s tale and all the stories that go with it.

“But you don’t particularly see people who look like me or have me play roles like that.”

Rachel’s casting as a classic character has sparked a backlash from some users on social media, but the ‘West Side Story’ star says she’s determined to win them over with her performance in the film.

She recalled: “When it was announced it was a huge thing that was trending on Twitter for days because everyone was angry.

“We have to love them in the right direction. At the end of the day, I have a job to do that I’m really looking forward to. I’m becoming a Latina princess.”

The live-action remake of ‘Snow White’ has also sparked controversy after criticism from actor Peter Dinklage – who suffers from a form of dwarfism known as achondroplasia – who took it to the performance” fucking dwarfs” of the story.

He said: “Literally, no offense, but I was a little surprised when they were very proud to cast a Latina actress as Snow White. But you’re still telling the story of ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’. “. Take a step back and look what you’re doing there, it doesn’t make sense to me.

“You’re progressive in a way, but you always do this fucking backwards story about seven dwarfs living together in a cave, what the fuck are you doing, man?”
