Can you expand on this? Because it looks like you are saying that USA, UK and Sweden have one monoculture and I don't think that's what you are meaning. Can you expand on this? I think I understand but I'm not certain and I would not want to misunderstand your meaning. I think you misunderstand what I'm confused over, I fully understand that actors may not want to play characters of a certain background and find it objectionable when they are cast for those roles, what I'm confused over is that people consider it something completely wrong that a actor who's parents/grandparents come from one country is playing a character whose parents/grandparents come from another, neighbouring, country if the actor has no problem with it. Just wondering, how has it "been particularly weird" since man SW names give you no clue what the person looks like and people can be named after clothing items in non-English, have pun based names or real life ones with a twist. I don't feel that Emmanuel sounds more Latino than most -el names (but that's just me), and I would not say that it's more strange than any other time RL-like names are used like Luka, Jack or Lars, but that's just my opinion.
