There's a few actors that I know that are not listed in the list.

I've met quite a few of them.

Beethoven wasn't an actor. Instead, he was a famous but dead composer.

Troy Kotsur ?
Deanne Bray ?
Tyrone Giordano ?
Amy Ecklund ?
C.J. Jones X (saw him up close and personal. Funny as hell... it is better to see his show in person...)
Lou Ferrigno X (he was the green hulk or something...? I know he was a bodybuilder. Saw him at a comic convention. He is not deaf-- "hearing impaired".)
Michelle Banks ?
Phyllis Frelich X
Linda Bove X (Seasame Street, no child of 80s didn't watch it and learn their ABC in ASL)
Anthony Natale ?
Howie Seago ?
Marlee Matlin a BIG X (no big mystery here. I think she is the "public" deaf actress that both deaf and hearing audiences know. alas the hearing audiene wouldn't know her name-- "that deaf actress in that movie... children of silent lamb or something?" har har)

I know recognize Amy Ecklund from Guiding Light (soap opera). She played a wife of this doctor Mr. Bauer. She got a CI later and used as part of her show. They both separated because she wanted to do something else and talk about her CI to large audiences in Washington, DC. lol, that was in the soap opera, but I feel this was exaggerated that people's life change like this because of CI. Oh well, but I notice that when an actor/actress will leave the show, they will come up with something kind of silly and never show them again--not until many times later. She lost her hearing at 6 years olds in real life. She can hear on the phone now. It was shown on Oprah.

I recognize Marlee Matline. Yeah, she does not want a CI. She married a cop and had a few children.

I recognize Deanne Bray from Sue F.B. Eye. I read that she was a teacher for hearing impaired children. She didn't believe that people could read lips, so I believe she isn't as deaf as many of us think. I read that somewhere online.

Oh well, interesting tidbits to share.

Oh and Beethoven, the obvious pianist prodigy. Anyway, he had a progressive hearing loss, so he did have hearing before. I read somewhere about his life and the things he did to produce music especially how to "hear" music through his teeth with a wood connected to the piano. He heard music in his head. Yeah, a prodigy. Read a book about him if you're interested in further details.

C.J. Jones: I saw him on TV
Lou Ferrigno: I saw him in the TV series "The Hulk", and on interview programs
Phyllis Frelich: I saw her on several TV programs
Linda Bove: I remember her from the National Theater of the Deaf (live performance, many years ago)
Anthony Natale: I saw him in "Mr. Holland's Opus" and in the ASL instructional videos
http://homepage.smc.edu/natale_anthony/
Howie Seago: I saw him on a Star Trek New Generation episode
Marlee Matlin: I saw all her movies and TV shows

What about Gil Eastman (host of Emmy-winning "Deaf Mosaic")?
What about Bernard Bragg? I met him many years ago (around 1968) in Connecticut when he was beginning with the National Theater of the Deaf.

Lon Chaney Sr. was not deaf, but his parents were, and he credited his silent movie acting skills to his communication expressiveness that he learned from them.

OH that is him? Then make my list as (X) for him. I met him at my highschool. he was slightly snooty because the movie at that time was like fairly new. "Star-struck" and all that... He was introduced to me by a schoolmate (who apparently wanted to boost her "popularity" by assoicating herself to a movie actor) and kept saying, "HE IS THE CELEBRITY FROM THAT MR HOLLAND'S OPUS MOVIE" and I just nodded and said "nice to meet you" and went back to my routine. Maybe he was put off by my easygoing stance instead of having my mouth open and drooling that a movie star was only three feet away from me. :-D

I asked my husband once when we watched her tv show together and he said she is more alike HoH instead of deaf, the way she talks.

deaf and hard of hearing actors and actresses

What do you think about hearing actors/actresses receiving a part for any deaf character on the big screen instead of Deaf actors/actresses?

Not sure about Bill Haley—a quick Google didn’t turn up anything. Brian Wilson was deaf in one ear, and was incapable of hearing stereo seperation. This is why many of the early Beach Boys albums were recorded in mono, even though stereo had been invented soon after the band formed.

Well many of Haleys songs never used loud musical intruments. The drumer on the comets never went wild like the beatle ringo starr did. And Haley used a regalar country western gutar. And Rudy Pompelli was the saxaphone player he never blew loud like a wildman like Louis Armstrong did. I have been to a simalur rock group like bill haley and the comets group. My mother hired a group called The Magicians they never made it to big time. They were just a bunch of guys trying to bring back the 50s style music. I asked them if they knew how to play any of the haleys songs. They knew only 8 songs and they sang 4 of my favorites like "Rock around the clock" " R-O-C-K " " See you later alligater" "Dim Dim the lights" They also played chuck berrys songs and Buddy Hollys songs. When they start playing elvis pressley song "Jail house rock" I got a little upset and i waited until they finished the song i told them ""No more elvis songs please" I have nothing against elvis pressley its his songs kinda turn me off theyre so anoying. Maybe its certain sounds of music can make you go deaf like a electric gutar can damage your hearing and the Bass drums can damage them too if theyre played too wild.
