I started writing The Silent Child in my bedroom in Los Angeles – I could never have imagined that two years later I’d be back to collect an Oscar – it still hasn’t sunk in. . This film and it’s subject is very close to my heart and I’m so proud that our little project has raised the profile of deafness. . Thank you to everyone who supported us and thank you for all your lovely messages (sorry I haven’t got back to everyone yet) . The biggest thank you of all to our A- team that made this film possible …especially our incredibly talented director Chris Overton (who also happens to be my fiancé ❤️) . WE DID IT TEAM – WE WON A BLOODY OSCAR!!!! . . #oscars90 #wedidit #icantbelieveit #sograteftul

“It was a very private event, we wanted to keep it private, but I am so happy though. It has been a very good year, I don’t know what we are going to do next year!” she continued.
