Amy Winehouse’s Dad Defends The Actress Playing His Daughter In Biopic Following Backlash

Biopics are a tried and true genre in the film industry, especially related to beloved figures from the music world. We’ve seen this in projects Walk the Line, I Wanna Dance With Somebody, and Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis, and now there’s a movie coming up all about late English pop star Amy Winehouse. Some set photos have recently leaked online, revealing English actress Marisa Abelala’s look while filming as Winehouse in the movie, which is titled Back to Black. And the late actor’s dad defended Abela for playing his daughter following online backlash.

When the set photos of Marisa Abela in full costume as Amy Winehouse started circulating online, there were a ton of negative comments, specifically from those who didn’t think she looked anything like the “Valerie” singer. But Winehouse’s father Mitch Winehouse spoke to TMZ about Back to Black, and actually stood behind the actress. He told the outlet that she’s a great choice for the role, despite her physical differences from the singer. What’s more, he says that plenty of actors have not looked like the real-life people they’re portraying throughout film history. He’s not wrong in that regard.
