For What It's Worth, 'In the Dark' Auditioned Plenty of Actresses with Visual Impairments Before Landing on Perry Mattfeld

By

We weren't sure how to feel about Netflix's decision to release CW's In the Dark on the streaming platform, but we were immediately gripped by the series, and can now confidently say we adore it. The show centers around Murphy, a snarky and sarcastic 20-something who's a bit too cool for school.

As we soon learn, Murphy lost her sight as a child, and lives with the family who adopted her. They own a guide dog school to assist the visually impaired. However, this stuff is all backdrop to In the Dark, which isn't about how Murphy navigates her life without sight.
