Skyler Davenport is a American actor. Davenport has neurological vision loss, and, with notable exceptions, voice actor work has been a major focus of their career. In particular she was the star of a thriller entitled See For Me, where they play a blind person, hired as a house-sitter, who relies on a smartphone app and remote partner, to defend themselves during a dangerous home invasion.
Davenport was born with a rare form of migraine headaches, which can cause temporary paralysis, and, occasionally, dangerous strokes. Davenport has a stroke in the period between highschool graduation and studying acting in College. Davenport's 2012 stroke caused profound vision loss.
