‘Walking Dead’ star Angel Theory on navigating acting while hard of hearing

Summarized by Matthew Dehler, staff writer

After a car crash at 14, actress Angel Theory began losing her hearing. Yte, she didn’t let this new change in her life stop her. Since then, she’s starred in hit shows like “The Walking Dead” and “Kinderfänger.”

Working on action-scenes and horror movies excites her. “I like making people feel something while they’re watching,” says Theory. “Watching horror movies, you can feel sad, you can feel scared — all the emotions are usually found in horror.”

Being on-screen isn’t for everyone, but Theory loves it. “Sometimes you don’t realize that it’s just so much bigger than yourself,” Theory says. “You don’t realize something as little as five seconds or five minutes on screen can mean so much to someone else and all around the world.”
