Actress Michelle Hurst, who plays an angry Carribean matriarch on Orange Is the New Black, is recovering from serious injuries sustained during a December car accident.
According to Hurst’s family, the accident occurred right before the holiday season. The actress was reportedly placed in a medically induced coma for 16-days so doctors could perform surgeries close to her spine.
Hurst is currently recovering in the ICU at UNC Chapel Hill Hospital in North Carolina. A donation page has been established to help cover her medical expenses if you’re interested.
No word on how this will impact Miss Claudette’s character on the popular Netflix series.
