Gina Wilhelm Actress – Actress in a Wheelchair, Not a Wheelchair Actress
Tiffany Giddes has been in a wheelchair for eight years, but she’s been anything but sedentary. Now she’s on her way to Hollywood to become an actress in a wheelchair.
That’s different than a “wheelchair actress”.
Giddes explains, “I got tired of seeing people who weren’t disabled play people in a wheelchair,” she says. “Why not have an actress in a wheelchair who doesn’t stand up and go home at the end of the day?
“I think they need someone like me, who really lives the role.”
