A Star is Born: Young TV Actor Depicts Character Who, Like Him, Has a Vision Impairment

Three-year-old Johnny Kincaid plays toddler Jack Damon on the popular NBC-TV series This is Us. The character Jack Damon is visually impaired, as is Johnny Kincaid, who made his acting debut in this role. Johnny has albinism, according to the Instagram page he shares with his mother.
