From Illiterate to Success, New Orleans Actor Beats Odds One Role at a Time

He's a member of the cast on one of the hottest FX television series this season. In its third season, "American Horror Story: Coven," which comes back for its mid-season premiere, Wednesday, Jan. 15, gives its nearly 4 million loyal viewers a spicy, gritty and gory taste of New Orleans history. It's full of supernatural events centered on New Orleans' mystique and rumors about an abusive slave owner. The  compelling acting, directing and writing that screams at you from scene to scene brings you into a world the average person really couldn't imagine. 

Wednesday, NewsHeels will introduce you to a New Orleans actor who went from being illiterate as a child to studying the dictionary and landing one of the most unforgettable roles on the FX hit. "I know what it's like to grow up and be called dumb and stupid by people in your family because they don't understand you're dyslexic and don't know how to help you."
