The Stand : CBS Continues The Trend By Casting A Hearing Actor In A Deaf Role.



CBS All Access has set four of the leads for its upcoming series “The Stand.”
They cast a hearing actor Henry Zaga(13RW) for a deaf role 'Nick Andros'.

Two months ago CBS pledged to make casting more inclusive
CBS also committed to audition actors with disabilities.
Hollywood takes pride in diversity to ensure representation & authenticity, but continues to exclude people with disabilities.
