74 years old and he gets his first romantic lead? He's lucky - not many actors that age get cast in romances - except as in-laws.

“Hopefully it has to do with creating a better understanding of Native people by the general public,” Studi said in an interview earlier this summer. “It does still exist, the misconception that we were all killed off and we don’t exist anymore as peoples.”

Always have had massive respect for the Native peoples and always liked his acting. Keep breaking down those stereotypes and feeding knowledge, Wes.
