When it comes to acting, RJ Mitte refuses to highlight disability, avoiding roles that could be seen as ‘inspiration porn’, a term coined by Stella Young. On world cerebral palsy day, he spoke with writer and activist, Georgia Cranko, who also has the condition. They talk diversity in life and, more recently, on screen since, Mitte says, the acting industry realised ‘people want to see real people on television’.
