In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, actress Christina Applegate shared that she will no longer be pursuing on-camera work due to her multiple sclerosis diagnosis. Applegate, known for her role in the hit Netflix series “Dead to Me,” revealed that her time on the show was probably her last.
Applegate expressed her admiration for her co-star Linda Cardellini, stating that working with someone who is just as skilled as her was much more enjoyable. She praised Cardellini’s acting abilities, calling her the greatest actress she has ever worked with.
The actress was diagnosed with MS in August 2021, a disease that affects the central nervous system and muscle control. While filming “Dead to Me,” production was halted so that she could begin treatment.
Applegate expressed her sadness at leaving the show, saying that she will miss her co-workers and crew. However, the past year has been a struggle, and she is relieved that she no longer has to push herself so hard to get through the day.
In summary, Applegate has made the difficult decision to retire from on-camera work due to her MS diagnosis, and she will always hold fond memories of her time on “Dead to Me.”
