Deaf actress shares her experience working on Cannes Film Festival standout movie

A deaf actress used sign language at the Cannes Film Festival to share the wonderful experience she had.

Millicent Simmonds starred in “Wonderstruck,” an artistic movie that mixes opposing elements. The movie switches between color and black and white, silence and speech. Todd Haynes directed the movie following his success with “Carol.”

Millicent Simmonds, the young actress that stars in the movie, shared her experiences.

”Every morning I would start working on the script when we’d come at the movie, my mother would always wake me up very early. She says, ‘It’s time to work on your script,’ and that’s how I would start. I would start reading the script and I never stopped reading it—really it’s such a wonderful story, I just re-read it and I’d go, ‘Oh stop reading ahead. I have to focus on today’s scene.’ It was so—I just got lost in the story everyday and it was such an honor to work with Todd as a director. He’s so easy to work with and so friendly, so warm. It was, I can’t say it enough, it was such an honor. I can’t even find the words to explain what it was like to work with you, Todd. I never dreamt that my life would come here, to this, and I can’t thank you enough and everyone else in the movie, it was so wonderful working with everyone. The crew were so friendly so welcoming and I actually will miss this moment. This is a moment I will never never forget – thank you so much,” she said using sign language. 

The 8:30 a.m. screening has already excited audiences.

Actress Julianne Moore, who has two roles, was also on hand to help promote the movie.
