Reports have emerged expressing concern over the health of 86-year-old actor Morgan Freeman. According to his agent, the esteemed actor had to cancel his participation in a press tour for his upcoming series, Special Ops: Lioness, in the UK due to falling ill with a “contagious infection.” Consequently, Freeman decided to remain in the United States. The Daily Mail reports that doctors believe he contracted a fever along with the aforementioned infection.
Initially, Freeman was scheduled to join fellow Hollywood actors Zoe Saldaña and Nicole Kidman, who are both part of the show’s cast and served as executive producers, for a press event in London. However, he was unable to attend, leaving Saldaña and Kidman to continue with the events in his absence. During their appearance on The One Show, host Alex Jones expressed disappointment over Freeman’s absence.
Freeman’s agent confirmed to the Daily Mail that the actor had a fever and was diagnosed with a contagious infection, resulting in the cancellation of his trip. The agent reassured that Freeman is now in stable condition. It’s worth noting that Freeman has been dealing with fibromyalgia, a chronic condition characterized by widespread pain, since a near-fatal car accident in 2008. As a result of the accident, he experiences chronic pain, fatigue, and difficulty sleeping. Nevertheless, he remains committed to his acting career, and we send our well wishes for his full recovery.
