Julia Louis-Dreyfus Announces She's Cancer Free

However, undergoing treatment - which included surgery as well as chemotherapy, per the Post - was harder than Louis-Dreyfus anticipated. For these reasons, and likely a few more, HBO shortened the episode order to seven.

"A lot of people worked for me and I knew I couldn't really keep it private because I had to tell everybody what was going on, and then I just sort of embraced that and I got a lot of positive feedback", she said.

During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday night (18Oct18), Julia confirmed that she has beaten breast cancer and is back on set.

In a new interview with The Washington Post, Louis-Dreyfus opens up about her cancer treatments and how they affected production on the show as well as why she didn't just consider walking away to focus on her health. And urged people to fight all types of cancer and make universal health care a reality.

Humans are Slowly Killing the World's Biggest Organism Pando
An ancient forest in Utah considered to be the largest single living thing in the world is dying, according to scientists. A team of researchers from the University of Utah has conducted the first comprehensive assessment of the clone Pando.

The 57-year-old actress admitted she would have usually dealt with her medical situation in private, but because work on "Veep" would have to be halted while she sought treatment, she went public with the news and chose to try and take a light-hearted approach to battling the disease. Initially, she had the idea of shooting between her chemo sessions. "The whole thing was so astounding". "I thought I could muscle through it, and to a certain extent, I did, because we did have table reads of scripts every three weeks", she said. Now, I really believe it. And that delivering truthful performances satisfies her to the core.

The seventh and final season of Veep is due to premiere in spring 2019. It's the shortest yet for the series; Season 1 was eight episodes and Seasons 2-6 had 10 apiece.

And now her cancer is in remission, Julia is back at work on the political comedy and "savouring every second".
