“In spite of the fact that I can see beyond what I can speak, I didn’t grow up speaking Cook Island Māori fluidly. My mum showed me the hula, I stood by listening to her talk the Reo and she frequently played Cook Island music at home and in the vehicle yet I never truly tried to gain proficiency with the language as a youngster… Which I’m certain numerous biracial people share this equivalent sensation of disappointment I have now.
“Along these lines, I was so apprehensive to shoot this scene,” the cleanser star conceded. “It wasn’t necessary to focus on the singing or the acting… I was anxious that my elocution was off-base and I’d stir up the words.
“I don’t think I’ve at any point felt more weak performing than this day. It seemed like I was shedding layers to uncover a greater amount of Angelina as opposed to wearing a greater amount of them to make a person. It felt significant. To the storyline. To my way of life. To me as a biracial lady now. To child Angelina never seeing that on television and in motion pictures. To future Polynesian children seeing themselves.”
