The Real Life section is .. odd, since this is a casting trope not a within-the-story trope. Maybe it would be better retitled "Multiple Media" or something?

There's really no way to say anything about this on the page without it being natter, but...

"My disability is a huge thing to some people, but to me it's just a personal characteristic like hair color. I'm hoping that in a few years, it won't even be an issue for me as an actor because it will be so commonplace."

Anyone else find it kind of...odd that the last sentence basically says, "I'm hoping in the next few years, paralysis is so commonplace that it doesn't stand out as an odd trait"?

Heh. I don't think he's wishing for more people to become paralysed; rather, he hopes that more already-disabled actors will be included in films and shows and this will not be a problem.
