'Breaking Bad' star RJ Mitte and ‘bionic actress’ Angel Giuffria are on a mission to change disability representation in Hollywood

Angel Giuffria is known as the 'bionic actress' because she wears a high-tech prosthetic arm that she likes to tinker with and customize. RJ Mitte is an actor who reached worldwide fame following his portrayal of Walter Jr. on the show 'Breaking Bad'. 

We talked to Giuffria and Mitte about disability representation in Hollywood and the dual struggle of getting characters with disabilities to be present in the script, but not entirely defined by their disability.
