RJ Mitte Opens Up About Cerebral Palsy With 'Untitled Mag'

RJ Mitte makes us melt on the back cover of Untitled Magazine‘s Legendary Issue.

The 22-year-old Breaking Bad actor opened up about living and using a disability to his advantage, inspiration and more. Check it:

On his own disability: “My CP [cerebral palsy] wasn’t as bad as his [Walt Jr's] but I still went through all the therapy as a kid. I went through all the stretching and I knew what this kid had to go through to keep control over who he is. It was an amazing eye-opener to be able to see everything that I had to overcome and be able to watch another person go through it.”

On his drive: “When I come up with any character, I try to base as much on my life as their life. I try to base what and how that character feels in a situation and then use the emotion of what I had to go through, where I had to be, and what I had to do to be able to be where I’m at and do what I do as a brace, kind of like a backbone. Every character needs a little bit of struggle and I find that it just helps to make the character a bit more real.”

On his legends: “There are quite a few legendary people that don’t so much inspire me but have given me an outlook that has driven me to certain directions that I want to go. There are people who are legends and there are people that are able to do the impossible.”
