What Samantha said

Samantha revealed in the interview that taking a break from work to recover from myositis was the “hardest decision” of her life. But in hindsight, she feels it was also the best one. ““I’ve had my fair share of self-loathing and really low confidence, but I’ve always strived to grow as a person. With that growth came a deeper understanding of my insecurities and self-loathing. I was able to heal by addressing them – not by trying to fix them from the outside, but by fixing the inner trauma that needed more healing than any external quick fix,” the actor said.

She also added that setbacks like these have made her a stronger person. “People might think that success defines you, but it is failure and loss that truly define you, and introduce you to the best version of yourself. These lows and these losses have made me a person I am truly proud of,” she said. Samantha’s condition of myositis entails the immune system of her body attacking her muscles.
