After a nationwide search, MILLICENT SIMMONDS landed the coveted lead role of Rose opposite Julianne Moore in "Wonderstruck." Director Todd Haynes shot half the film without sound, not only as a nod to the films made during the period in which the story takes place but also to highlight the perspective of Millicent's character Rose who is deaf. Millicent herself is deaf, and communicates by using American Sign Language. Simmonds has been performing Shakespeare plays with The Jean Massieu School of the Deaf Drama Club for the last five years, and received a certificate of excellence for her portrayal as Puck in "A Midsummer Night's Dream." She was also seen in the short film "Color of the World" which received recognition from Utah State University. A Utah native, Millicent enjoys soccer, reading, traveling, being with her family and feels passionately about becoming an advocate for Deaf actors.
