'Covert Affairs' Star Opens Up About Son with Asperger's Syndrome

Bravo to another actor/celebrity who is opening up about a child with a disability. Hopefully, this will encourage others to follow suit and it lets everyone know that autism knows no boundaries.

Just a few years ago actor Christopher Gorham didn't know much at all about disabilities. Today, however, he’s front and center on USA Network's "Covert Affairs" (Tuesdays at 10/9 central) as Auggie Anderson, a CIA agent who lost his sight while on assignment. And in real life the father of three is no stranger to the disability community either. Gorham's son Lucas, 10, was recently diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome.
Ahead of the season premiere of "Covert Affairs," Gorham spoke to Disability Scoop about what it’s like to portray a character with a disability and his personal experience learning about his son's diagnosis.
