Joely Richardson is quitting the hit cable TV show Nip/Tuck.Â Richardson plays Julia, Sean McNamara’sÂ wife on the show.Â She is quitting the show to move back to England and take care of her fifteen year-old daughter.
She has revealed for the first time that Daisy has a rare medical condition which she was diagnosed with shortly after her first birthday.
The teenageer is due to undergo a series of operations on her legs after gradually developing circulation problems in her veins over the years.
The condition, which Miss Richardson, 41, has never spoken of before, is understood to weaken the valves and walls of the veins making them less efficient at circulating blood back to her heart.
“Surgeons and hospitals have been a big part of our lives. We were always told that she would have to have more surgery when she got older. The time has come,” the actress revealed.
Speaking of her departure from the plastic surgery drama, she said: “What the future holds, nobody can say. It’s all up in the air. And I don’t know if I will ever be here (in Hollywood) again.
Bumpshack sends it’s thoughts and prayers to the Richardson family during this time. Hopefully all will go well and Joely can return to Nip/Tuck sometime in the near future.
