‘Bridgerton’ actress Ruby Barker released from hospital amid mental health issues, says ‘can’t wait for the future’

Ruby Barker, best known for playing Marina Thompson in Netflix’s hit series ‘Bridgerton’, says she was released from hospital following a mental health crisis.

The 25-year-old actor shared a video on Instagram last week saying she was “taking a little break” after being hospitalized for health reasons.

In a new video shared on Monday, Barker said she was discharged from hospital and spending time at a nature retreat. She previously said she’s gotten “really sick” since starring in period romance “Bridgerton.”

“I’m out of the hospital! Thank you so much for the support, I’m looking forward to the future and I feel like I’ve come out the other side. Thank you all, have a blessed day, take take care of yourselves, don’t be afraid to reach out to your loved ones and we’re all in this together as they say in High School Musical. Big big love,” she captioned the post.

The actor also expressed his gratitude to his friends, the “Bridgerton” team, the NHS medical community, as well as the media for reaching out to him.

“It made me feel so happy to be alive. I didn’t expect so many people to contact me after watching the video. It made me feel less alone. A big shout out to the NHS taking care of me I am fine.

“If I had any advice for my younger self, I would just say to myself, ‘Listen, it’s not all dark, even when you’re hitting rock bottom,'” she said in the music video.

She said she had been in touch with her co-star Claudia Jessie (Eloise Bridgerton in the series), who told her to train the mind ‘to find the funny, the light and the positive’ in life .

Barker recently reprized her role as Marina in an appearance on the second season of “Bridgerton,” which premiered in late March.
