Nora Roberts Isn’t Here For Your Anti-Liberal Protests

Netflix is adapting Nora Roberts’ romantic suspense novel Brazen Virtue with Alyssa Milano starring in the film as the lead, Grace. Some of Roberts’ fans have taken issue with social activist actress Alyssa Milano being cast because of her open liberal politics (she was a part of the Me Too movement to shed light on and help stop sexual harassment and assault, and hosts a podcast “tackling social, political & cultural issues”). In response to the Facebook comments, Roberts responded, “To those who state they’ll never read my work again due to differing political viewpoints and opinions, or because a talented, experienced actor will play a role, I can only say that’s their choice. I believe Ms. Milano and I will survive it.”
