Director John Krasinski talks about the importance of casting a deaf actress named Millicent Simmonds in “A Quiet Place” movie:
“It was non-negotiable for me to hire a deaf actress, but I didn’t know I was going to get so lucky to have not only a deaf actress, but the most beautiful human being who would walk me through the experience and be honest about what it meant to be deaf.”
A Quiet Place opens at theaters on 6 April 2018 – Simmonds plays as Regan, a teenage daughter in family trying to survive predators who attack whenever they hear a noise.
