‘Daredevil’ Star Charlie Cox Honored by American Foundation for the Blind

“Daredevil” star Charlie Cox was honored Thursday at the American Foundation for the Blind’s 19th Annual Helen Keller Achievement Awards in New York City.

Cox received an award for his portrayal of Matt Murdock, the blind lawyer-by-day, superhero-by-night Marvel comic book character, on Netflix’s new hit series.

“Since the show has been released, I’ve had a great number of emails and letters from people in the blind community experiencing degrees of vision loss,” Cox said during his acceptance speech. “I had one particular stranger in London who was understandably stressed by her decreased vision.” The woman, he said, was more concerned with losing her independence than losing her vision. “I remember thinking that that is actually far away from the truth.”

Cox continued, “Based on the experience that I’ve had on the show and being so amazed by the amount of tools and the support and education … that is not the case.”

Cox also melted a few hearts when he posed for a photo with a guide dog.

A premiere date for the second season of “Daredevil” has yet to be announced.
