The “How to Get Away With Murder” actress took to Twitter to write: “Wishing and praying for Conchata Ferrell’s speedy recovery. One of my first jobs was the tv movie Amy and Isabelle.”
Although she is famed for her role in “Two and A Half Men,” Conchata was initially set for stardom with her appearance on the 1975 series, “Hot l Baltimore.”
Viola continued the tweet by stating that Conchata “was a light. A beautiful spirit. It was one of my finest memories.” Conchata’s health status became known after People Magazine reported that she got hospitalized back in May after she fell sick.
The site added that during her stay in the intensive care unit, the 77-year-old went into a cardiac arrest that lasted an estimated ten minutes. According to her husband, Arnie Anderson, Conchata was eventually moved to a long-term care facility where she has been placed on dialysis and a respirator.
Even though she has become stable, the actress is said to be semi-conscious and unfit to talk or communicate with people. Unfortunately, Arnie has been unable to visit his wife because of the precautionary measures put in place to reduce the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Entertainment Weekly recalled that Conchata got hospitalized for several weeks in December 2019 after she contracted a kidney infection.
The outlet reported that even though she seemed to have healed from it in February, her current hospital spell is connected to the infection.
Although she is famed for her role in “Two and A Half Men,” Conchata’s IMDb profile noted that she was initially set for stardom with her appearance on the 1975 series, “Hot l Baltimore.”
That plan, however, didn’t go as she intended as the show, which made waves as a play, became a flop on national television.
Luckily, she made her big break with “Two and A Half Men” and subsequently earned her two Emmy nominations as Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role as Berta in the sitcom.
