Harry Potter actress Miriam Margolyes said she’s fascinated by Will.i.Am’s blackness. According to the Daily Mail, the usually talkative and witty Will.I.Am was left flabbergasted and speechless by comments Margoyles made the two appeared together on the UK’s Graham Norton Show. She said, “I don’t have a very positive attitude towards rappers. I don’t really know any you’re the first one I’ve actually talked to.” After regaining his composure, Will.I.Am said, “I’m the first rapper and black guy you’ve kicked it with!”
Will.i.am was left speechless on the Graham Norton show last night after Harry Potter actress Miriam Margolyes told the star that she was ‘fascinated’ to meet him because he is black.
The actress, 71, said: ‘Unfortunately, I don’t know many black people. We don’t get to meet across the colour line much except in showbusiness and that’s what’s so nice.’
While the usually talkative rapper was left speechless, Inbetweeners actor Greg Davies tried to diffuse the situation by joking ‘It’s exotic’, while Norton quipped: ‘It’s lovely Miriam, you’re right.’
