Why we need more disabled characters on screen | Q with Jian Ghomeshi | CBC Radio

Why we need more disabled characters on screen | Q with Jian Ghomeshi | CBC Radio: Disabled characters played by disabled actors

Not all disabled characters are played by able-bodied actors. RJ Mitte (Walter "Flynn" White Jr.) in Breaking Bad, Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) in Game of Thrones and Gabrielle Marion-Rivard in Gabrielle all embody their character's physical and mental disabilities.

Watch the three aforementioned actors at work in the windows embedded below and tell us: do you agree with Shinn that casting able-bodied actors in disabled roles undercuts the power of the work? Would you like to see more disabled actors in film and on television?

Ontario Should Consult People With Disabilities Before Making Laws to Protect Them | Andrew Morrison-Gurza

Ontario Should Consult People With Disabilities Before Making Laws to Protect Them | Andrew Morrison-Gurza: In 2005, the Province of Ontario enacted the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act. The goal of this act was to make Ontario fully accessible and inclusive to Persons with Disabilities (PwD) by 2025. This is an important piece of legislation, insofar as it recognizes PwD are an integral part to our social fabric in Ontario. Moreover, the AODA recognizes that more must be done, which is invariably a great start.

Disability Is Not Just a Metaphor - Christopher Shinn - The Atlantic

Disability Is Not Just a Metaphor - Christopher Shinn - The Atlantic: What do all these characters have in common? They are played by actors who are not disabled in real life.

It’s not hard to understand why: Financial realities necessitate stars in leading roles, and there aren't many disabled actors who are big box-office draws. But even allowing that fact, something strange is going on. The entertainment world keeps producing stories about disabled people, yet almost never casts disabled performers at all—whether in major or minor roles, playing disabled or able-bodied characters. Counterexamples, like RJ Mitte in Breaking Bad or Jamie Brewer in the first and third seasons of American Horror Story, are rare
