  1. I was led here by seeing the Huffpost write up about your being cast in Curious Incident. I wanted to just say thank you for being open about being on the Spectrum. I have two children on the spectrum- including a son who absolutely loves theater. He is still pretty young, but he is very involved in our local children’s theater. Being labelled as having autism isn’t something he’s been too comfortable with, but he was really excited when I showed him the write up about you and when he watched your audition clips. Thanks for being a good role model!
