‘Peaky Blinders’ Star Sophie Rundle Shares Her COVID-19 Experience: “I Can Taste Nothing”

Actor Sophie Rundle, best known for playing ‘Ada Shelby‘ in BBC One’s ‘Peaky Blinders,’ took to Instagram the other day to tell of how she is coping with COVID-19.

The 32-year-old actor posted a pair of selfies, in one of which she is seen has a bloodshot in the eye, and implied that her experience with coronavirus disease is not quite bearable. Alongside the photos, Rundle wrote as a caption:

“GREETINGS FROM MY SICK BED! 🧟‍♀️🎄 So for Christmas this year I got myself a nice juicy bout of Covid-19. I also have a very festive bloodshot eye from all the hardcore vomiting I did in hospital (swipe if you’re feeling brave).”

Then the ‘Gentleman Jack‘ star mentioned the symptoms of the disease she has experienced:

I can taste NOTHING, I have a cough to rival a Dickensian workhouse orphan boy and the angel on top of my festive sickness tree is the TOOTHACHE from my gnarly little wisdom teeth at the back there. Quite the feast of festive ailments!”

Rundle added that self-pity is not working in any way, so, she encouraged people to cheer up themselves, even in these painful days. The actor asked her fans and followers about their Christmas plans by writing:

“So how are we all doing? What is everyone finding to cheer themselves up? If you’re feeling low or at the end of your tether, please know you are not alone. You can join my gang. Comment below and let’s cheer each other up. 🎄✨”

Following the post, Rundle’s industry friends took to the comment section to send their good wishes for the actor, who needs to self-isolate for 10 days.

“Ohhh Sophie 😞 sending you all the love my doll! Xx” wrote, ‘My Big Fat Diary‘ star Sharon Rooney.

“Love you so much my schmoo, wishing for you to feel better ASAP 💕💕💕💕 xxxxx” added, actor & director Hannah Arterton.

Oh doll face… I’m so sorry!!! Get well ASAP. We’ve new year drinks to enjoy 🤩🥂🤩🥂🤩 ❤️” commented, actor Charlene McKenna.
