Autistic actor Talia Grant joins Hollyoaks

NAS reported - We’ve been keeping this one a secret but we are so pleased the news is finally out there. Autistic actor Talia Grant is joining the cast of Hollyoaks to play autistic character Brooke Hathaway, who will appear in the village in June. She says she is looking forward to representing "something that people are unaware of".

Talia is the daughter of TV stars Carrie and David Grant, who are parent campaigners for the National Autistic Society and who served as vocal coaches on Pop Idol and Fame Academy. Lime Pictures put out an open casting call to find an actress to play the part and worked with the National Autistic Society in researching the character and to help advise with the auditioning and casting process.
