Conchata Ferrell has suffered a heart attack and is now fighting for her life on a respirator.
According to her husband, Arnie Anderson, the Two and a Half Men star spent four weeks in intensive care and was recently moved to a long-term facility.
The 77-year-old suffered a heart attack earlier this year shortly after she was hospitalised for a kidney infection, and has not been able to speak or communicate.
“It’s going to be a while before there’s any recovery. It’s all neurological. There’s nothing we can do to speed up the process. We are hoping for the best,” Anderson said.
He has not been able to visit her due to the coronavirus guidelines at the hospital.
Although Ferrell as been a TV and film actress since the 1970s, audiences know her best for her memorable role as Berta on Two and A Half Men.
The role earned her two Emmy nominations for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series and in 1992, she received an Emmy nomination for her work on the 90s crime drama L.A. Law. Ferrell also appeared in films including Network, Edward Scissorhands, Erin Brokovich and Mr Deeds.
