That's why there's a lack of countries being represented, mostly due to money. As for actual actors and actresses themselves, you can't put that down to several simple reasons>lack of WELL KNOWN talent pool>struggle to not type cast>struggle to select actors and actresses not taken>lots of roles have already been filmed, need new projects to cast new actors and actresses, which carry a higher risk, and thus are played ever more safe, yada yada yada.
That being said, people give Tilda Swinton a lot of shit for playing the ancient one, despite the fact that not only was she not only very good in the role, there wasn't a balloon's chance in a pin factory any insinuation of Tibet was going into Dr Strange.
Besides, to list, so far we have>Mantis>Hogun>Wong>Hamir>Helen Cho
Isn't a bad start.
