To embody Regan, the couple’s eldest daughter, the choice of John Krasinsky focused on Millicent Simmonds. The young actress, revealed by the very beautiful film The Museum of Wonders of Todd Haynes, imposed herself quite naturally in the role of this deaf teenager to whom the family owes its survival in part, since it is thanks to her that all the members of the Abbott family communicate in sign language.
