Please kindly join with me in waving your hands to applaud for Sean Berdy (plays Emmett) for getting involved in the show, “Switched at Birth”. I was so touched by his performance in the show – a true Deaf identity.
It was amazing to have the captions available showing what he signed. I felt like this was truly welcoming Deaf people to watch! I am dying to see more Deaf actors in action. This show offered positive views of Deaf culture – a great benefit for hearing audiences, seeing what it’s like to be a Deaf person. I am looking forward to seeing more and more Deaf actors joining the entertainment industry. Sean: Way to go! Keep going and you will be a Deaf star! (Hands Waving!) Thank you, ABC family, for making this feature Deaf-friendly and showing part of the Deaf World.
