Did you know that 95% of disabled roles in Hollywood are played by able-bodied actors, Maysoon Zayid, a comedian with CP, is beginning to make a change!
“My advice to young people with CP that are looking to get into Hollywood is you have to work harder than everyone else,” Zayid said. “I wish that I could tell you that you didn’t, but you do. So the most important thing is make sure your talent is there. Make sure when you get the opportunity that your art and your craft is so flawless that they don’t even remember that you have a disability.”Maysoon Zayid
