Rosie Perez is reflecting on her terrifying experience of contracting the novel coronavirus last December.
In an interview with Uproxx published Monday, the 56-year-old actress revealed that she was in the middle of filming HBO Max’s The Flight Attendant when production had to shut down after she was diagnosed with COVID-19.
“I had told everybody, ‘We’re going to get shut down.’ I had contracted COVID when we flew to Bangkok,” she said. She explained that at the time COVID-19 was an unknown virus so it was being described as a “new respiratory tract infection.”
