Georgie Henley, who played Susan in The Chronicles of Narnia, is now speaking up about a health scare she had over a decade ago.
The actress, best known for her role as Lucy in the Chronicles of Narnia film series, said on Instagram that she was diagnosed with necrotizing fasciitis when she was 18 years old.
“For the last nine years I have been open about my scars in my personal life, but have hidden them entirely in any professional context: wearing bandages or coverings, makeup on set and stage, long sleeves whenever I might be photographed, trousers so I could put my hand in a pocket,” she revealed, adding that because the industry “often focuses on a very narrow idea of what is deemed aesthetic ‘perfection,’” she was “worried that my scars would prevent me from getting work.”
“The truth is there is no such thing as ‘perfection,’ but I have still lived with the shame of feeling different, exacerbated by the expectations that came with beginning my career at a young age”
“I’m sure I will talk more about my experiences in the future but today I am simply happy to feel, for the first time in a very long time, finally free.”
