Deaf Actress Millicent Simmonds 'A Quiet Place'

WATCH: Meet the Deaf Utah teen who stars in thriller 'A Quiet Place'


BOUNTIFUL, Utah -- A Quiet Place stunned audiences and critics alike, garnering over $150 million at the worldwide box office and earning a 95 percent critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

The thriller film is the stuff of nightmares, as two parents fight to keep their children safe in a post-apocalyptic world while creatures hunt by sound and slaughter anyone who makes a noise.


But for Deaf Bountiful actress Millicent Simmonds, it’s been more a dream than a nightmare.

The 15-year-old plays Regan, the Deaf daughter of the Abbotts, portrayed by real-life husband and wife John Krasinski and Emily Blunt.

Regan’s parents have survived in a world that demands silence because they learned sign language to communicate with their Deaf daughter, but Regan still struggles to be understood in a place where a single sound could cost her her life.

“I really loved the story and thought it was unique,” Simmonds told KSL.com. “I also really loved the character Regan. She was brave, tough, a little rebellious, but really just wanted to contribute to the family. She was really complex.”

Unlike Regan, Simmonds wasn’t born deaf, but lost her hearing as an infant after an accidental medication overdose. She learned American Sign Language and attended a school for Deaf students until she decided to start regular high school in her teens.

At 14 years old and with no film credit to her name, Simmonds beat out 250 other candidates to land a leading role in the film “Wonderstruck,” starring Julianne Moore and Michelle Williams, after a former drama teacher prompted her to audition. Simmonds played Rose, a young Deaf girl trying to discover more about her past.

“I wanted to show other Deaf people that they can do anything, even be in a movie,” Simmonds said when KSL first profiled her in May.

Though Simmonds works with an interpreter on set, she believes the hardest part about being a Deaf actress isn’t her lack of hearing, but the lack of opportunity for those in the Deaf community... Read More on KSL.com.
