The world of Hollywood can be harsh and unforgiving, particularly when it comes to appearances. Embeth Davidtz, of the hit show Ray Donovan, explains her experience with cancer and her decision to do a nude scene following her double mastectomy.
After being diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer, Davidtz underwent chemo, lymph-node-removal surgery and a double mastectomy. Now, with a clean bill of health, for the first time she feels ready to talk publicly about her experience. She explains that getting back to work in Ray Donovan was a great re-entry and she felt ready. When considering her career and future, Davidtz states, "It was good to work again. I'm not retired. A part of me had been shelved and I missed it more than i knew. When I did it again, I felt 'Oh God, that's what was missing!'"
