* In ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings: The Two Towers'', the Battle of Helm's Deep features a quick shot of a soldier turning his head toward the camera to reveal an empty eye socket. From IMDb: "The performer who played him showed up as an extra, wearing an eye patch; director Creator/PeterJackson politely asked to see what was under the patch, and then inquired if the gentleman would be interested in appearing in the film sans eye patch. The gentleman was reluctant at first and quite self-conscious, but afterward said [[HeartwarmingMoments the experience had made him more comfortable with his condition]]."

* The only role that Oscar winning actor Harold Russell ever played that was ''intentionally'' written as disabled was his role in ''Film/TheBestYearsOfOurLives''. He played a sailor who lost both hands during World War II (just as Russell himself had in real life). In all his other roles, he played men who just ''happened'' to be disabled, but the disability wasn't the point of the character.

He played a sailor who lost both hands during World War II (just as Russell himself had in real life). He ended up winning an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor and another honorary Oscar, having never acted before, becoming the only person who has won two Oscars for the same performance. In all his other roles, he played men who just ''happened'' to be disabled, but the disability wasn't the point of the character.



* In Film/TheBestYearsOfOurLives, Harold Russell, who played a WWII veteran who had lost both his hands in the war, had actually lost both his hands holding a defective bomb during the war in a botched training exercise. He ended up winning an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor and another honorary Oscar, having never acted before. He is the only person who has won two Oscars for the same performance.

* The Czech actor Jan Kašpar was paralyzed after falling from a tree. All future plays of his theatre group ([[Creator/JaraCimrman Jára Cimrman]] Theatre in Prague) specifically included either a part of a wheelchair-bound man or a part where the actor spends the whole play sitting in one spot and never moves from it.
** Which also led to aversion -- Kašpar often alternated his parts with another, able-bodied actor.
