I’m so excited🤩 I got to work on set 🎬with the super talented actor @micahdfowler & fellow awesome wheelers in another episode of the awesome TV show @speechlessabc where they talked about a SUPER important topic!!! *️⃣able-bodied actors playing someone in a wheelchair without having a real disability!
*️⃣ I was a protester in this last episode chanting, “nothing about us without us!!” Which I love & BELIEVE IN!!🙌♿️
This IS a conversation that NEEDS to happen because this has happened for some time in several movies & Tv shows unfortunately!!😏💯 The sad part is that often times actors who are really in a wheelchair, don’t even get the opportunity to audition for these roles!! We need more INCLUSIVE CASTINGS!!♿️ Actors with a disability exist, we’re here🙌 & deserve a chance to audition for these roles & OTHERS- Not just the “wheelchair person!” 🙌💯
