PhD Student cast in lead role of Netflix's production, "All the Light We Cannot See"

GRADS@WORK
PhD Student Aria Mia Loberti has been cast in the lead role of Netflix’s production of “All the Light We Cannot See.” As detailed in this morning’s press release (see https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/.../netflix-all-light.../), “Netflix’s search for its Marie-Laurie, the blind teenager at the heart of its four-part adaptation of the Pulitzer-Prize winning novel … is complete.” Director Shawn Levy is quoted, “It was a jaw-drop moment when we first saw Aria Mia Loberti, who is both a natural performer and an advocate for disability equity and representation. I can’t wait to tell this beautiful story with her at the center.” While certainly a unique path toward the PhD in Communication Arts & Science, this role resonates with Ms. Loberti’s scholarly interests and her ongoing advocacy for people with disabilities.
Good luck, Aria, on the adventure that lies ahead!
