Dead to Me: Season 3 premiered on Netflix on Thursday, and its star, actress Christina Applegate, has given an outstanding performance while also accepting the weight she has gained as a result of a medical condition known as MS (multiple sclerosis).
Despite a number of health challenges, the actress has done an excellent job in her role, which will tug at your heartstrings.
Christina made her first public appearance since her diagnosis at the Hollywood Walk of Fame Ceremony, where she was honoured with her own star.
Christina Applegate Weight Gain From MS
In a recent interview with The New York Times, Christina said that she had gained 40 pounds since she was told she had MS.
“I’ve gained 40 pounds and can’t walk without a cane.” “I want people to know that I am very aware of everything,” she said of her new look.
However, the actress has not let her health condition prevent her from performing in Dead to Me: Season 3. Her role as Jen Harding remains as promising as it has always been, and Christina has done an excellent job of bringing it to life.
The show’s production was halted for five months following the actress’s diagnosis, but she was determined to return to work and finish it because she felt she had an “obligation to Liz and Linda, to our story.”
Christina’s ability to embrace difficult changes in her life—both on and off screen—is truly inspirational, and fans admire her for it.
Why Does The Actress Use Walking Sticks?
Christina is not seen using a walking stick on the show, but she did use one to support herself during the Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony. She has also come to accept that this is her “new normal.”
MS is an auto-immune disease that affects the sheath that covers nerve fibres, resulting in communication issues between the brain and the rest of the body.
Numbness, tingling, pain, fatigue, memory problems, blindness, and paralysis are among the symptoms. The condition has the potential to cause permanent nerve damage or degeneration.
During the ceremony, she was also seen barefoot. She explained on Twitter, sharing a photo of the same shoe, that “for some with Ms., the feeling of shoes may hurt or make us feel off balance.” “So I was me today.” Barefoot”
I have a very important ceremony coming up. This will be my first time out since diagnosed with MS. Walking sticks are now part of my new normal. Thank you @neowalksticks for these beauties. Stay tuned to see which ones make the cut for a week of stuff. pic.twitter.com/O543p1G4vS
