Adaptation of ‘All The Light We Cannot See’ Has Blind Actor Aria Mia Loberti Cast in Lead Role

By December 20, 2021Adaptations, News

An adaptation of All The Light We Cannot See has cast a blind actor, Aria Mia Loberti, as the female lead.

The four-part limited series adaptation of Anthony Doerr’s Pulitzer Prize-winning bestseller, is adapted by Shawn Levy and Steven Knight.

Picked from thousands of others clamouring for the role, Loberti is cast as Marie-Laure, the blind teenager in France during WWII whose path collides with Werner, a German soldier.

Despite no formal acting training, and this being her first ever acting role, Loberti secured the role of the young protagonist.

“To find an actress to play the iconic Marie-Laure – a young blind woman whose greatest strength is the tenacity of her hope and the power of her voice across the airwaves during wartime – was no small challenge,” said Levy on the casting of Loberti.

“We searched the world and reviewed thousands of auditions. We never thought our path would lead to someone who has not only never acted professionally, but never auditioned before. It was a jaw-drop moment when we first saw Aria Mia Loberti, who is both a natural performer and an advocate for disability equity and representation. I can’t wait to tell this beautiful story with her at the centre.”

All The Light We Cannot See is due for release on Netflix in 2023.
