Power Rangers Dino Fury is guest starring Special Olympics New Zealand Equestrian athlete, Sarah Dalton, in the fifth episode, “Winning Attitude,” premiering Saturday, March 27 at 8:00 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon!
“When casting Lily, we wanted to make sure this person A) was a Special Olympics athlete and B) had a positive spirit and attitude complementing the qualities of our main cast. Sarah certainly met those requirements, and she has been fantastic to work with,” said Executive Producer Simon Bennett. “Featuring diverse characters has always been a vital part of the Power Rangers story. We’re thrilled to have Sarah join the Power Rangers family.”
“Working on Power Rangers Dino Fury was the opportunity of a lifetime, and I’m so grateful. Right from day one, the production team, the crew and the cast were so welcoming and kind. Everyone was so professional and worked so hard, [and it was] mixed with lots of laughter and fun. I had a good time and loved doing it,” said Sarah Dalton.
“People with intellectual disabilities are told their whole lives what they cannot do and as a result they face a norm of exclusion and low expectation. Special Olympics gives them an opportunity to shatter those stereotypes. Sarah’s appearance on “Power Rangers Dino Fury” is not only a great example of her talent beyond the sports field but represents so much of what inclusion should mean for young people today,” commented Dipak Natali, Regional President and Managing Director of Special Olympics Asia Pacific.
