Dev Patel and Octavia Spencer appear on the fifth season of Actors on Actors to discuss a myriad of topics including diversity in film.  In a surprise admission, after winning an Academy Award for her portrayal of the maid Minny Jackson in the film “The Help”, Spencer says that “90% of the roles” she was offered after were maids.

Dev Patel gave his thoughts on diversity as a way to unite and observe topics difficult to discuss.  "That’s why art’s important to put out into the world. That’s why films like yours, ‘Hidden Figures,’ and ‘Lion,’ are really important because they’re anthems of diversity, they’re anthems of love, and they’re anthems of perseverance,” Patel said.
