Marlee Matlin Shatters Stereotype

Academy Award winning actress Marlee Matlin appeared as Dana Sue Lacey, owner of a floral shop in Memphis, TN in the Lifetime TV movie "Where the Truth Lie" aired recently. Associated Press' Beth Harris s Lacey was helping the state senate campaign for when the friend is suddenly murdered. As the sole witness, Lacey becomes the prime suspect. "It's certainly different for me," Matlin was quoted by AP through longtime friend and associate Jack Jason, "I do feel I get stereotyped. Being a woman and being someone who's deaf, they would say, 'Oh no, no, no, she couldn't possibly do that and we couldn't possibly believe that the murderer.' I wanted the audience to have the sympathy and use it against them in a way... I avoid roles that have to do with deaf stories. Don't misunderstand me, I have to accept the fact that I'm a person who's hearing-impaired, but I don't want the story to be about being deaf," she said. Matlin said she wasn't being offered the roles she wants, so she formed her own production company, Solo One. "If you want to be out there working, you have to come up with it yourself," she said. Matlin as an executive producer for the first time on "Where the Truth Lies," along with her interpreter Jason, who wrote the story. Matlin said that although she is never satisfied, she feels more self-confident as she gets older. "I have plans for what I'd like to do," she said. "I have ideas of what I'd like to do and I'm not afraid to put them to work."
