Sue Thomas -  Special Investigative Analyst featured on the police drama SUE THOMAS F.B.EYE/PAX-2002-2005.


Deanne Bray starred as Sue Thomas, a young deaf woman from Ohio who is accepted for a position with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in Washington, D.C. where she used her sign language skills and lip reading abilities to solve crimes. Assisting her was her canine hearing sidekick Levi (played by Jesse the dog) who acts as her ears in the busy metropolis.

Sue's colleagues at the F.B.I. included:

  • Yannick Bisson as Special Agent Jack Hudson, the unit leader
  • Rick Peters as Special Agent Bobby Manning
  • Mark Gomes as Special Agent Dimitrius Gans
  • Ted Atherton as Special Agent Myles Leland III
  • Tara Samuel as Special Agent Tara Williams

In 2005, Sue Thomas was offered a job as Senior Investigative Analyst in the Counter-Terrorism department in New York City, but after a lot of soul-searching Sue decided to stay in Washington, DC.

TRIVIA NOTE: The series is based on a true story about the real Sue Thomas, deaf from the age of 18 months, who overcame significant obstacles to work for the F.B.I. and later as a motivational speaker and the author of the best selling autobiography, "Lip Service." Born in Ohio, Sue Thomas also earned her degree in International Relations and has done post graduate work in Counseling.

The role of Sue Thomas is played by deaf actress Deanne Bray who is also an experienced lip reader. Severely deaf since birth, Bray is a veteran of Deaf West Theatre in California and has appeared in several films and television series. Although she loves acting Bray is passionate about teaching. She has taught science and math to deaf and hard-of-hearing students in East Los Angeles and has established a literacy program -- the Little Bookworm Club.
