What’s Not To Like About Marlee Matlin?

Wikipedia summarizes Mrs. Matlin with:

Marlee Beth Matlin (born August 24, 1965) is an American actress. She is the youngest, and only deaf performer to win the Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role, which she won for Children of a Lesser God. Her work in film and television has resulted in a Golden Globe award, with two additional nominations, and four Emmy nominations. Deaf since she was 18 months old, she is also a prominent member of the National Association of the Deaf.

Her book I’ll Scream Later was quite a success as well as some of her acting gigs:

In 2010, Mrs. Matlin was a keynote speaker for Authors@Google: Marlee Matlin

And in 2012 a guest on the Jeff Probst Show.

She’s an advocate for the Deaf, supports a charity that equips deaf and HOH children in Developing Countries with hearing aids.

Below is a plethora of MM videos (not all CC — sorry)…

And my favorite is when MM teaches Deaf rapper Sean Forbes to Mambo (or Tango or Rumba or something about Jake’s Piano)….
