Is “As We Seet It” Actor Albert Rutecki In The Autism Spectrum?
Yes, Albert is on the autism spectrum. Albert himself has not talked much about his autism. Although at one point, he did say that he was very excited to portray his character on As We See It with authenticity.
Talking about As We See It, it is a new show on Amazon Prime Video about three autistic friends, Harrison, Violet, and Jack. And it seems this new show is ready to give actors on the autism spectrum their chance to tell their own stories with honesty.
Hollywood has a history of sidelining actors with disabilities. In recent years, however, different voices from different corners within and outside of Hollywood are forcing it to be more inclusive. Casting actors in the autism spectrum to play autistic characters might only be the first step towards that inclusion. But it is an important step.
The characters of Harrison, Jack, and Violet are played by Albert, Rick Glassman, and Sue Ann Pien respectively. And all three actors identify themselves as being on the autism spectrum. The supporting cast of the show includes Sosie Bacon, Chris Pang, Joe Mantegna, and many more.
As We See It is created by Jason Katims, who is known for his shows dealing with sensitive topics like Parenthood, Friday Night Lives. Friday Night Lights won multiple awards including an Emmy.
The show will premiere on Prime Video on 21 January 2021.
