Apple has begun highlighting a number of incredible artists reimagining roles for those with disabilities. The new TV App collection called 'Barrier Breaking Characters' explores the work of Zack Gottsagen, Lauren "Lolo" Spencer and Steve Way along with their roles in "The Peanut Butter Falcon", "Give Me Liberty" and "Ramy".

The three stars also highlight a mix of inspiration, all-time favourites and spotlighted performances; offering a mix of everything from "Attack The Block" and "Twin Peaks" to "Insecure" and "The Devil Wears Prada" to Disney's "High School Musical" and "The Greatest Showman".

The collection also celebrates representation in film, breakthrough moments for characters with disabilities and movies with audio descriptions. 'Barrier Breaking Characters' can be found by navigating to the Browse by Collection area in Watch Now within the TV App.
