Comments made by the actor have been "taken out of context"

Tamsin Greig played the role of Jewish mother Jackie Goodman for 6 series in Channel 4’s hit comedy, Friday Night Dinner.

In an interview with The Telegraph earlier this year, she revealed that in the current climate “I probably shouldn’t have been in that show.”

Whilst speaking in a radio interview this week, she was asked about her comments in The Telegraph. She replied that really her comment had been taken out of context.

Greig said: “What I meant by it was, if we were casting it now, we’d have had very, very different conversations about the necessity for casting me in it and whether the casting should have been wider.”

It’s after widespread criticism across the entertainment industry of people being cast in roles that they don’t represent or form a part of.
