On a beautiful summer afternoon in Los Angeles at John Paizis’ Performing Arts Studio West, the cast of TV’s Born This Way met up with David S. Zimmerman, an ABILITY contributor and founder of Meet The Biz, and actress Jamie Brewer of American Horror Story. Later in the conversation, the cast’s families joined them as they talked about life, love, and the up side of having Down syndrome.
David Zimmerman: I have to say your show has become one of my favorites. In fact, I binge-watched the first season last week.
Jamie Brewer: We both did.
David: I cried! I laughed!
The Cast: Awwww.
David: I identified with a lot of stuff that was going on.
Jamie: Same here.
David: You guys seem so honest and open.
Elena: What was your favorite thing about it, David?
David: It’s hard to say because there were so many things I liked. It’s more than a show. It’s like a movement.
John (A K A J.T.): I think it’s because between Cristina, Rachel, Megan, Elena, Sean, Steven and I, we’re like a big family. We love this show. We’re always there for each other, in good times and bad times… We would sit down and talk about what bothers us the most. I feel like I’m the one to give advice to everybody.
