hmmm....I'm not quite sure if this link is acceptable in AD since it's about another forum.....
I don't know half of those actress/actors but I do know some of them, but thanks for showing it to us
There's a few actors that I know that are not listed in the list.
I've met quite a few of them.
Dont forget the famous ludwig van Beethoven.
Yup. Was he an actor?
Beethoven wasn't an actor. Instead, he was a famous but dead composer.
That's what I thought. He was Deaf though.
So he is decomposing?
I thought deaf people don’t get puns…
Hey! Dont Forget RUSH LIMBAUGH! Hes deaf! because of gods punishment towards republicans.
Btw, all dead composers are deaf, too! Lets's be fair! Lol, right Beethoven was deaf in his later years.
Marlee Matlin is deaf! and she refused to even wear a CI. Maybe she likes being deaf.
Limbaugh is just a radio host.
But we are getting the big ole ball rollin' here now.. slowly.....
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)
Cool...thanks for sharing this with us.
There were a few that weren't mentioned in the list. Hmm...ShoShannah Stern, Julianna Fjeld, Freda Norman...Ed Waterstreet...Jonathan Hall Kovacs
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.
Im surprised nobody (especially the girls) has commented about a Darrell in 90210.......
Nobody's mentioned Terrylene Sachetti, either.
nobody mention levonian either.. makes me wonder.. i have seen this monkey around
