Comedian with cerebral palsy says Hollywood isn’t doing enough to hire disabled actors

Comedian Maysoon Zayid has had her fair share of ups and downs in Hollywood. The Palestinian-American was born with cerebral palsy and had plenty of casting directors tell her she would never make it. Today, she’s acted alongside Adam Sandler, performed a TED talk that went viral and just published her first memoir under Reese Witherspoon’s new company Hello Sunshine. Zayid’s determination and talent led to her success in the entertainment world, but now she wants to bust the myth that tried to hold her back, that there aren’t talented disabled actors.
