Disability Awesome: Autistic Character Joins ‘Thomas & Friends’ Show

Welcome to the Disability Awesome segment! Each week here on Geek Alabama, Disability Awesome will feature a person or persons with mental and / or physical disabilities who are doing awesome and great things! As editor / publisher Nathan Young has an disability (Autism), we here at Geek Alabama love it when others when disabilities do great things!

Popular children’s cartoon franchise ‘Thomas & Friends’ has introduced its first ever autistic character – Bruno the brake carriage.  And the great thing is, the voice actor is also autistic.  Nine-year-old Elliott Garcia, who’s also autistic, was lucky enough to land the job of playing him.  See interviews from 5 News and ITV This Morning below!
