    My mother hasn't approved of her because she has a different cast.

    Re: She has a different cast

    What do you mean by "cast"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    That sentence could be changed so that it makes sense.

    Is it possible that you are referring to a "different caste"?

    Re: She has a different cast

    Now here's something that makes sense. (Thanks, Mike.) Perhaps:

    My mother doesn't approve of her because she's from a different caste.
