Casting for Marvel’s Echo Underway

Filming on the upcoming Disney+ series “Echo” is scheduled to begin in February 2022 so we have a while before it will join DIsney+.  It looks like they are continuing to cast for the series as well.

Disney is looking for two deaf actors for the series that are Native American or Latinx and are also fluent in American Sign Language.

It seems that this role will be fore a deaf Native American superhero with telepathic and superhuman abilities.  The character will actually be making her MCU debut in the new “Hawkeye” Disney+ series.

Here are the casting descriptions:

JESSICA – Female, 15-18 years old, Native American or Latinx, Deaf. Strong, fiercely independent and unwavering. Can tend towards sullen at times. *Fluent in ASL.

IRIS – Female, Late 20s/Early 30s, Native American or Latinx, Deaf. Warm and nurturing. *Fluent in ASL.

Are you excited to see what this series brings?

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
