Moderators Chest Rockwell Posted September 3, 2018 Moderators Share Posted September 3, 2018 I'm all for inclusivity and opportunity but I'm not sure people are appreciating what MND does to you. For one, Stephen Hawking was a real fringe case in how well he managed to control the disease and for how long. Also every case is different. Finding an actor with the condition, who could manage to the level of being able to cope with a film production and promotion schedule, and was a good enough actor for the role is a real needle in a haystack job. I do appreciate the broader points being made though, and I don't think it being difficult means they shouldn't try. The public backlash is a good thing if it affects the bottom line, because without it film studios would obviously just continue to take the cheaper and easier route.
