Calle Walton is a Canadian TV actress. She hails from Peterborough in Ontario, Canada. Calle is visually impaired. She is known for playing the role of Chloe, a blind teenager in the CW Network's comedy and drama series "In The Dark".

Early and Personal Life
Calle was born and brought up in Peterborough. As of 2021, she is 21 years old. She completed her schooling at South Meadow School in the city. Calle dreamed of becoming an actress from a young age. She was, however, not blind by birth. When Calle was in grade three she started having trouble with her eyesight. After initial tests, doctors found out that Calle had a mass on her optic nerve. Following this, she was diagnosed with sarcoidosis, a disease that causes inflammation. Calle went on to take several different medications and drugs to keep her tumor in check. With time and treatment, her vision sometimes improved while the other times worsened. Throughout her childhood, Calle fought for her vision. Later, the tumor grew towards her optic nerve, diminishing her vision further.
When Calle was in her senior year, her vision worsened, doctors realized that she was wrongly diagnosed all these years. After correct tests and diagnosis, doctors found out that the tumor in Calle's eye was cancerous that was apparently caused by a birth defect. Calle received chemotherapy for a year and survived cancer but lost her eyesight completely. She couldn't graduate that year and enrolled herself in the W. Ross Macdonald School for the Blind in Brantford, Ontario in Canada.
Early Career Dreams
Walton was interested in architecture and had dreams of being an architect or interior designer. However, she sadly gave up those dreams after discovering she was going blind. Before landing the acting role in the Netflix series In The Dark, Walton had decided to pursue a teaching career as either a Braille or kindergarten teacher.

Calle had given up on her dream to become an actress the day she lost her eyesight but just ten days into the new school, her principal announced that a casting agency was looking for a blind girl for a TV show.
