"Marlee is magic onscreen. Because of her situation, she does a lot with her face and body. It gives her a very appealing combination of strength and natural vulnerability." --Robert Singer, executive producer/creator of "Reasonable Doubts" quoted in Us, October 1991.

"I don't walk into a room and expect people to say, 'Oh, here's the deaf actress, let's treat her differently.' I never thought of myself in those terms, and I've never let it hold me back. In fact, I would say I've done everything that I've ever wanted to do in my life, except one thing. I have always wanted to be a cop! I'd like to take risks, help some people, make the law work, bust a few other people. You know, have some fun." --Marlee Matlin to Us, October 1991.
