An actor with Down Syndrome is inspiring “people with disabilities” by starring in a new Pure Flix series.
Actor with Down Syndrome
Cole Sibus is a 24-year-old actor with Down Syndrome who knew early in his life that he wanted to become an actor. He didn’t let his condition stop him from pursuing his God-given dream. In 2018, he first landed a role in the film “Spare Room.” His second project was the 2019-2020 ABC series “Stumptown.”
In an interview with Christian Headlines, Cole shared the reason why he wanted to become a successful actor.
“I want to inspire people with disabilities to accomplish their dreams as well,” he said.
Today, he is starring in the new series “A Thousand Tomorrows”, as someone with Down Syndrome. The series currently being streamed on Pure Flix is based on a Kingsbury novel. It is about a cowboy who fell in love with a female barrel racer who faced major trials in life. Rose Reid and Colin Ford will be playing the lead roles.
“I get to work with Colin Ford,” he said. “He was my favorite actor growing up. As a kid, I watched his film “We Bought a Zoo”. … And now we’re together, working together.”
Cole will be playing the role of the cowboy’s brother who is a Christian.
“We are alike,” he said of his character, Carl Joseph. “Because I’m a Christian, and he’s a Christian as well.”
When asked about the message this series wanted to convey to its viewers, Cole said that it’s about God being with us.
“God is there for you and He will always support you to keep going in life.”
“A Thousand Tomorrows” is a series about faith, love, strength, and overcoming trials.
