Are there autistic TV/movie/whatever characters who stim or have sensory issues? Who?

I've never seem any stimming, and the only mentions of sensory issues I can recall is Abed from Community saying that it "sounds like a submachine gun in [his] head" and "vibrates [his] skull" when his friends chew gum and the time he didn't feel his legs get hit in the paintball game. However, I don't watch much TV or many movies and my attention to detail isn't the best.

Ben from the movie Ben X has sensory issues. I don't know if he stims.

I know Rain Man had both and so did Simon Lynch. I know Max shows both too.

Hikaru Azuma from Hikari to Tomoni. The show is specifically about his mother's yearning to understand and raise him.
