‘The Stand’ Series Facing Boycott For Casting Hearing Actor For Deaf Role | Tv Shows Ace
Members of Hollywood’s deaf community are currently up in arms. They are angry at the fact that a hearing actor has been cast in the role of Nick Andros, a deaf person. The community is boycotting the CBS adaptation of Stephen King’s novel The Stand for that reason.
In The Stand, the role of Nick Andros, a deaf man, is played by Brazilian actor Henry Zaga, a hearing actor. In the previous, 1994 mini-series of The Stand, actor Rob Lowe played the role of Nick. There was no fuss about the fact at the time, but of course, times have changed.
