Following her multiple sclerosis diagnosis in August 2021, Christina Applegate says she doesn’t think she’ll return to filming on-camera.
“I can’t even imagine going to set right now,” Applegate said in a new interview with Vanity Fair. “This is a progressive disease. I don’t know if I’m going to get worse.”
Applegate’s diagnosis came while filming Season 3 of Netflix’s Dead to Me when the script was already completed. Although she was able to wrap the series’ final season, numerous medical procedures and reactions to the medication made it difficult for Applegate to hold down her starring role as Jen Hardy. Now, she says she’ll focus more on voiceover work instead of pushing herself to work on-camera.
