Ruth Codd roles
Frankly, we’re quite surprised by this, but The Midnight Club was Ruth’s debut in the acting world! According to reports, producers of the show first discovered the actress on TikTok (which she has since deleted) where she boasted a large following for her videos on bringing awareness to the amputee community. But unsurprisingly she’s shown her acting worth as she’s already bagged another role in Mike Flannagan’s next project, titled The Fall of the House of Usher.
Ruth Codd brings awareness to the amputee community
Many would have noticed that while in the show, Anya had an amputated leg, and while some may have thought that this was created with special effects in post, in real life the actress is indeed missing part of her leg, though it’s not holding her back in any way!
While on TikTok, the star was very vocal about her decision to amputate her right leg at the age of 23, just below her knee, due to complications experienced by a broken foot at age 15. She used her voice and multiple platforms to bring awareness about the amputee community and aimed to reduce the stigma that people in her position experience daily.
