Personal Quotes (1)

If you support diversity and think shows should give a portrayal of what America truly looks like, then performers with disabilities must be included in that equation...People have been very good at being politically correct. They say the right things. But there has been an assumption that disabled actors could slow down production, can't do this or that, or that people won't want to see them on screen.
