a work in progress; disabled actors are named in the notes.
debating including the disability in the notes y/n? i haven't seen all of these and make no claims that they are good, in general, or good in terms of disability representation and portrayal. if other big hitters in the production are disabled (director etc). i also try to note that.
currently delineating between fantasy/sff films where the actors' faces are visible, like elves (on the list) versus where they are playing monsters/aliens/ewoks (off the list), as ewoks are not really 'disabled characters.'
disclaimer: i have no idea how any of these actors personally identify and understand that Deaf/HoH people do not always identify as disabled, and not all of these folks might! but it is a generalized category for ease of use.
please drop suggestions in the comments!
ps - i know there are disabled actors in sia's 'music' but i feel too weird adding it to this list.
