Recently, however, that success has proved harder to maintain, but not because casting directors don’t call. Rather, it’s because Blair has been struggling with her health. Throughout most of the 2010s, the actor suffered a host of intermittent symptoms. These included pain sthat truck her neck, spells of dizziness, difficulty in walking and the abrupt loss of sensation in her leg.

Blair did not know the cause of the symptoms, but they proved debilitating. She had become so tired by the illness that she had to ask her agent only to get her work local to her home in Los Angeles. However, in 2018 she made the trip to Vancouver, Canada, to the film series Another Life for Netflix. And in 2019 she was able to shoot a film in Atlanta.

For some time, though, Blair’s doctors put her condition down to depression or other mental causes. The only help she could find was a steroid jab in her neck to lessen the pain. However, on one occasion, the actor went to get the shot from a new doctor and he straight away told her to get an M.R.I.
