CASTING DIRECTORS & DIRECTORS: If you're searching for a genuinely disabled actor to play a character who's suffering from Dystonic or Essential tremor, shell shock, cerebral palsy or Parkinson's disease, YET he possesses a voice in a million, look no further. You've found him!
I'm a partially disabled musician and TV-film actor who has been forced to give-up the former completely and drastically curtail the latter, due to the onset of a severe Dystonic Tremor affecting my hands, arms and head. However, I'm still a member of the UK actors union Equity, and I'm still available to play roles demanding a severe head, hands and arms tremor. My one-in-a-million voice, though, remains virtually unaffected.

LITERARY ACTIVITIES: In addition to the above, I'm also an independent author, short story and feature writer, columnist and photo journalist. I currently have three e-books to my name, the most recent of which is a ghosted autobiography titled "More Maisie Pops 1965-1990" which was published in March 2016. As the title suggests, it is the sequel to "Maisie Pops 1913-1965" which is, likewise, a ghosted autobiography that was published in 2013. My debut work was published in 2011. It's an occult thriller titled "Redeeming Factor" and, in common with the other two titles, it is availble for download to all e-book and e-readers worldwide.

RADIO: From 1981 to 2014, under my birth name of David Lowe, I produced and presented thousands of music-based, magazine and documentary radio programmes for the BBC and UK Independent Local Radio. I'm now a pensioner, but I continue to broadcast on a weekly basis, as a volunteer producer-presenter on the UK's Riviera FM radio at:-
DISABILITY: I suffer from Dystonia (Dystonic Tremor), a progressive neurological condition affecting my hands, arms and head. Under my birth name of David Lowe, I have uploaded a couple of short video clips to YouTube that tell my Dystonia story. In due course I will be making one or two similar clips under my Lewis Adler stage and pen name. In the meantime, here are the existing (David Lowe) YouTube links:-
REPRESENTATION: My agent is Louise Dyson at VisABLE People
Tel: +44 (0)203 488 1998
Name: Lewis Adler
Lives in: Torquay, United Kingdom
Occupation: Host/presenter, Actor and Author
Unique traits: A deep, soothing, creamy-rich English accent. In fact, I've often been told it's "a voice in a million" and, thankfully, the voice is not compromised by the severe tremor condition (Dystonia) affecting my hands, arms and head. The Dystonic Tremor symptoms mimic Parkinson's Disease, cerebral palsy and shell shock, but they're not terminal.
