A deaf and gay teenager in the new Netflix teen drama The Society has been given a love story by the show’s creators.
Sam, played by deaf actor Sean Berdy, has been using American Sign Language (ASL) to communicate throughout the first season of the show.
In the storyline between Sam and Grizz (Jack Mulher), tension has been slowly building as they’ve grown closer and Sam has been teaching Grizz sign language.
In one episode, Grizz asks Sam to teach him “one more phrase” in sign language. “How do you say kiss me?” Grizz whispers to Sam.
