With around 10% of the population being dyslexic, we often find our dyslexic compadres popping up in some pretty unexpected places. So it was no surprise when we realised, some of the characters from our favorite films and TV shows were fellow dyslexics.
Number 10: Donna Martin (Beverly Hills, 90210)
She has the whole of Beverley West High in the palm of her hands; she’s pretty, popular and always wears the latest fashion trend. Our number 10 spot goes to Donna Martin from 90210. Her good taste in fashion eventually leads her to become a famous fashion designer but before she gets there she has some challenges to overcome. Behind the front she puts up, Donna is secretly struggling with her undiagnosed dyslexia and some insecurity issues that come along with this.
