Sandra opened up to Kerry about U.K TV shows lacking diversity and expressed her frustration saying, “‘Sometimes it would be me and 75 white people!” She also noted that surprisingly, the U.S is a step ahead of the U.K in terms of diversity as “the development of people behind the camera is very slow in the UK.
