“I feel like you can take whatever challenge is thrown your way and wallow in it or turn to something – let it define you, have it make you a better person or more fun person or more interesting person. You can curse the heavens or you can band together and make it work. And that’s what my mom did.” – Scott Silveri
It is because of those sentiments and because of his own childhood experiences that Scott wanted to create Speechless and I am glad he did!!! Maya DiMeo is a mom on a mission who will do anything for her husband, Jimmy, and kids Ray, Dylan, and J.J., her eldest son with cerebral palsy. As Maya fights injustices both real and imagined, the family works to make a new home for themselves and searches for just the right person to help give J.J. his “voice.”
After chatting with Scott, we also got to meet the Speechless cast:
Minnie Driver & Jimmy Ross Bowie
*Minnie is so sweet and Jimmy is really funny!!!
*He is such a sweetie!!!
Mason Cook & Kyla Kennedy
We also went on to the Speechless Set and snapped some pics
