The 46-year-old took to Instagram and wrote: "I have #multiplesclerosis. I am in an exacerbation. By the grace of the lord, and will power and the understanding producers at Netflix , I have a job. A wonderful job.

"I am disabled. I fall sometimes. I drop things. My memory is foggy. And my left side is asking for directions from a broken gps. But we are doing it.

"And I laugh and I don't know exactly what I will do precisely but I will do my best. Since my diagnosis at ten thirty pm on The night of August 16, I have had love and support from my friends".

She also explained how she is receiving help from costume designer, Allisa Swanson, as she is set to appear in the Netflix programme Another Life.

MS is a condition which can affect the brain or spinal cord, causing a range of symptoms such as vision loss, pain, fatigue, muscle weakness and impaired co-ordination.
