So, here’s Zyra Gorecki Wikipedia where you can learn about her boyfriend, family, her disability, and her age.
Zyra Gorecki Family
Zyra Gorecki was born as one of the two daughters of her parents Steve Gorecki and Barb Gorecki. Both of her parents are on Facebook but very little information has been shared about them. But, she and her father teamed up for Hero Mud Run at the Muskegon County Fairgrounds in Michigan, United States. So, we believed that Zyra is a Michigan native.
Speaking about her Zyra, her mom shared, “She’s physically and mentally strong and always says, I can do it! She puts her mind to it and she does it, and we don’t slow her down. I’m very proud of both of them. The whole family feels really good about the fact that she’s able to inspire other people.”
Barb further added, “I want to put a little book together about Zyra, so I’ve been writing down some tidbits. The other day I was looking through them and Zyra had said, ‘My parents needed a hero and I became her hero.’ So that’s kind of how we feel about it.”
Zyra Gorecki also has a sister named Bailee Gorecki. She is a nursing student at Muskegon Community College. Back in January 2020, Bailee along with her two friends Jennifer Vannortwick and Brittany Johnson, and their instructor Amy Herrington and Yolanda Burris saved the life of a two-year-old boy who had nearly drowned in a hotel pool.
Zyra Gorecki Disability
Zyra Gorecki lost part of her leg below her knees during a car accident when she was 13 years old. Whereas, Distractify stated that she lost her leg in a lumber accident. She told Chicago Sun-Times, “I think people try to be good; they try to be caring and understanding of other people, and that’s not always the case.”
Also speaking with TV Fanatic, Zyra shared, “As an amputee, you have different experiences than a fully limbed person. Whether it’s walking down the street, people stare at you, and it gets emotional.”
“I’ve discovered having those rough days and having those amazing days that you have unique experiences than a fully limbed person. Bringing that to the show made it more realistic and more relatable than a fully limbed actor trying to play her,” Zyra added further.
Zyra Gorecki Net Worth
Zyra Gorecki sits on a burgeoning net worth of under $100 thousand.
Bravo Talent Management is the talent management company that helped her to land her first big career break in acting. Zyra is yet to share how she discovered her passion for acting. Nevertheless, she caught a big break just in her second job.
Back in 2016, Zyra had landed the role of Stuck Pedestrian in the Chicago Fire. But, in La Brea, NBC’s new sci-fi and family drama, she plays the role of Izzy Harris. In the show, Izzy and her dad Gavin are left behind in Los Angeles when a massive sinkhole separates them from the rest of the family.
Speaking about the show, Zyra shared that the show could be compared as a mix of Lost and Jurassic Park.
Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Zyra explained that her character is just a regular kid. Izzy deals with crazy stuff but still requires her dad. She also shared her excitement about people seeing an amputee as just a regular person instead of a novelty item you see walking down the street.
Zyra also seems to be seeing herself in the modeling world. Her socials contain a few snaps of herself posing as a fashion model.
Besides acting, Zyra also works with a non-profit named Amputee Blade Runners. The mission of the non-profit is to provide free running prosthetics for amputees. The organization gives blades to people who want to get back into running for free.
