"The only thing I can't do is hear. I can drive, I have a life with four kids, I work on TV, I do movies, so the deafness question, is it that they want to know because, what? Not sure."
"I hope that through my example, such as my role on 'The West Wing,' I can help change attitudes on deafness and prove we can really do everything... except hear."
"By deafness one gains in one respect more than one loses one misses more nonsense than sense."
"I think the deafness affects me more than I realise I think it makes me more tired. I loathe parties. I attend, smile and leave."
