Hearing from the Heart of the Silver Screen

Several actors with hearing loss have done amazing things on the big screen and in theatre.Marlee Matlin

These actors have made a difference. Making a difference is one reason why we offer free hearing tests.

The Hearing Foundation of Canada says many Canadians are showing signs of hearing loss in their 30s and 40s.

Here are some actors who haven’t let hearing loss get in the way of their success.

Marlee Beth Matlin

At 21, Marlee Matlin became the youngest Best Actress winner for "Children of a Lesser God" (1986).

She is also the only deaf actor to win a competitive acting Oscar — and is the third person (after Louise Fletcher and Jane Fonda) to accept the same award in sign language.

Gerard Butler

We can give you 300 reasons why this actor belongs on this list. This Scottish actor suffers from lifelong tinnitus and hearing loss.

Don Harron

This Canadian comedian and actor who made Charlie Farquharson famous suffered 40% hearing loss due to an accident on set playing an Olympic culler.

Leslie Nielsen
