Disabled actors should be cast as villainous characters on screen as well as in positive roles, leading performers with disabilities have said. Adam Hills, presenter of the Channel 4 satirical show The Last Leg, called for a broader representation of disabled characters on television.

I thought this was an interesting article about how disabled people are represented in the media.  What do you think?
