Simmonds is a very young, deaf actress that is trying her best to make her way in the tricky movie business.

Simmonds' big screen debut came with Wonderstruck (2017), a family drama by Todd Haynes, about a young boy in the Midwest. The story is simultaneously told with a tale about a young girl (Millicent Simmonds) in New York from fifty years ago, as they both seek the same mysterious connection.

You can check out her acting skills in the fresh John Krasinksi's movie A Quiet Place (2018).

A Quiet Place (2018) is the movie about a family that lives an isolated existence in utter silence, for fear of an unknown threat that follows and attacks at any sound.

Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds star in this horror thriller.
