When Nicole Beharie‘s character Abbie Mills was killed off in season three of Fox’s “Sleepy Hollow” in 2016, she had difficulty finding work afterward.
“What happened on ‘Sleepy Hollow’ is really interesting,” Beharie told the Los Angeles Times.
In 2019, Beharie shared that she’d left the show because of an autoimmune condition, which made it a challenge for her to shoot at times when working on the show.
But she doesn’t blame an individual or “Sleepy Hollow” executives; she now recognizes, she said, it boils down to structures that are in place.
Beharie, whose also in much better health today, now is starring in the film “Miss Juneteenth,” her first major role since “Sleepy Hollow.”
