Autistic 'Everything's Gonna Be Okay' Actress Kayla Cromer Steps Out For ABC Upfronts

Kayla Cromer steps out for the 2019 ABC Walt Disney Television Upfront earlier this week in New York City.

The newcomer will be starring in Freeform’s upcoming Everything’s Gonna To Be Okay, which introduces Nicholas (Josh Thomas), a neurotic 25-year-old visiting his single dad and two teenage half-sisters, one of whom is on the autism spectrum.

He hasn’t been particularly present in his siblings’ lives, but when their dad reveals that he is terminally ill, the girls have to cope with not only a devastating loss but also the realization that Nicholas is the one who will have to rise to the occasion, move in and hold it all together.

Kayla revealed during Freeform’s annual summit earlier this year that she is autistic herself.

“I have learned to trust the journey and this event is the perfect place for me to come out publicly for the first time that I’m actually on the autism spectrum,” she shared, before opening up that the autism aspect of the show helped her land the part.

Kayla added, “I never thought I was even funny before playing Matilda, but my acting coach convinced me by saying, ‘Kayla, I think you’re capable of comedy because frankly, your quirks resemble those of Sheldon Cooper.’”

    I principally generating around $5573 /monthly via the web . That is nice source of income to switch my previous time wasting job , In fact the most desirable feature around it happens to be that I now work for only a couple of hr each day which simply leaves me more and more of spare time rather than what I had before with my parents.
