[Source: New York Times]
Most autistic characters have been played onscreen by neurotypical actors. A new series bucks the trend, starring three leads who are on the spectrum.
In the new Amazon series “As We See It,” Violet, a 25-year-old cashier at Arby’s, desperately wants a boyfriend, but she is looking for love in all the wrong places (namely, Arby’s). Violet’s needs are simple. She wants someone cute, someone to go on fun dates with. Most of all, she wants someone normal.
