Gana voiced out her problem on being typecast as an actress during the interview with the News on 7th May 2016. She shared her experience which brought out the darker side of the industry where typecasting as well as discrimination exists.
When anyone walks into a room there are certain identifiers that are pinned to that person that they will not ever be able to break away from They will always be put into certain categories and me being the woman that I am – a curvy black woman – there are already uphill battles that I have to face.”
Furthermore, Dana added that nobody in the entertainment area wants to be put into a box as a typecast and she has been fighting to be considered eligible for role solely based on acting prowess. Dana shared that the casting directors like Megan Lewis are a hope in the industry as she believes in the philosophy “the best actor wins.” She praised her as,
“She doesn’t doesn’t care what color you are, what size you are [...] what your economic status is - she doesn’t care about any of that stuff. "That's the type of opportunity that I’m looking for that’s the kind of part that I want to be in.”
