The Get Out, and Black Panther star Daniel Kaluuya sat down for a recent interview where he revealed that he does not like to be defined by race - in fact, he says the issue of race is boring to talk about.
"I'm not going to ignore that I'm surrounded by [racial issues], but I'm not defined by it. I'm just Daniel, who happens to be black," he told Radio Times.
The outlet reportedly asked him about how he felt about the lack of diversity at the Oscars and at the BAFTA ceremonies, but again, Kaluuya was unconcerned about it.
"What is there to talk about race? It's just boring to me. What's the debate? I'm more of a doer. I'm just going to do what I want to do," he continued.
He then began listing his roles in his previous movies, adding that he did not want to become "the race guy."
"The Fades ain't about race, Psychoville ain't about race, Skins ain't about race, Chatroom ain't about race, Johnny English Reborn ain't about race. But that almost gets erased. There's a narrative that is pushed."
Is he right?
