    Comments:  | Leave A Comment

    Underwood trained with David Bryant, who was disabled 30 years ago at the age of 19 in a skiing accident. He says he’s learned through his mother and Bryant that having a disability means something different for everyone.

    “Our job as actors is to make it real, make it authentic. You’ll see things that you never saw Raymond Burr doing. Like David Bryant drives his own car using hand controls so Ironside drives his own van. There’s a lot of things that he and disabled people can do today that you wouldn’t see in the 60’s and 70’s.”

    “Ironside’’ airs on NBC on Tuesdays at 10 p.m.  Watch the entire first episode below.
