Down syndrome is a condition in which an individual is born with an extra chromosome. This additional genetic material alters the course of development and causes the characteristics associated with Down syndrome, including, "[an] experience [of] cognitive delays, but the effect is usually mild to moderate and is not indicative of the many strengths and talents that each individual possesses."

This month advocates and individuals who have Down syndrome will be working extra hard to ensure human rights for all people. For more information about Down syndrome and the Awareness Month, please check out the National Down Syndrome Society website at

Which of the performances listed below by actors with Down Syndrome do you consider the greatest?

Sarah Gordy as Pamela Holland - Upstairs Downstairs (2010)

I also wonder how many saw this?

I thought I was one of only the 50 or so people in each state that may have actually watched it?

You may want to revamp/update the suggestion framing as buzzy The Peanut Butter Falcom (2019) is soaring to a theatrical opening this August.

One of the protagonists is played by an actor with Down Syndrome, Zack Gottsagen.
