Colin Farrell opens up on disabled son

Nov 15 2012, 9:10am CST | by

Colin Farrell ''almost broke in half'' when his son James - who suffers from Angelman Syndrome - took his first steps at the age of four.

Colin Farrell ''almost broke in half'' when his son took his first steps.
The 'Total Recall' actor's eldest child James, nine, suffers from Angelman Syndrome - a neuro-genetic disorder with symptoms including intellectual and developmental disability, seizures, jerky movements and sleep disturbances - and he and the little boy's mother Kim Bordenave delight in his small milestones.
He said: ''We share in the smallest victories; the first words at age six or seven, being able to feed oneself at 19, and getting the seizures under control. When James took his first steps at age four, I nearly broke in half!''
Colin - who also has son Henry, three, with
Alicja Bachleda-Curus - went public with James' condition when the little boy was four years old, and says he was inspired to do so after watching the Paralympic games.
He told the December edition of America's In Style magazine: ''It was at the Special Olympics in Shanghai in 2007 that I decided, after consulting with James' mother, that I wanted to talk publicly about the pride and joy I had in our son. He has enriched my life, but I don't want to minimise the trials that so many families go through; the fear, consternation, frustration, and pain.''
And the 36-year-old actor has been given support in coping with James' problems by the Foundation For Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics (FAST).
He said: ''When you're the parent of a child with special needs, it's important to feel that you're not alone.''

DreamWorks Animation Presentation - Comic-Con International 2014
How does an actor know when he has finally made it? When they stop picking every script, and let the good scripts pick them!That sounds much easier than it actually is, because with more offers and opportunities there comes even more responsibility to make the next project better than the last, and that all depends on which roles you accept.It stands to reason then that the top dogs have their own set of rules and standards when it comes to picking roles, as they have been explaining i ...

Colin Farrell Visits "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon"
Though the anthology format of True Detective could allow the second series to go pretty much anywhere at all, the audience seem to have a pretty clear format in mind. From the off, conjecture about the second story line has been focused on what variant of the first series’ odd couple team-up we should expect. Most fans had assumed that there would again be two characters at the center of the story, echoing the Matthew McConnaughey and Woody Harrelson pairing of the first.I do ...
