“I learned sign language when I was 17 because I had to have a foreign language to graduate and I was pretty terrible at Spanish. I had a moment of weakness right before I got ‘Switched at Birth’: I gave up on acting and I moved back to San Antonio. I didn’t really have any friends, so I joined a deaf club and had to basically relearn sign language. I would go home and I would sign to myself so that I could get the sign language down before I looked like a fool in front of my new friends, and I realize now that I was making the sounds and learning the accent.”
