Bridgerton's Ruby Barker 'Happy To Be Alive'


"Bridgerton" star Ruby Barker said she is "happy to be alive" after being discharged from the hospital over recent mental health struggles.

In a video shared on Instagram last week, the 25-year-old said, "it is time to be transparent" and revealed she was hospitalized after "struggling since Bridgerton."

Providing fans with an update after leaving the hospital on Monday, Barker.

Who is best known for her role as Marina Thompson in the Netflix period drama, thanked everyone for their unwavering support.

She said in a newly-shared video on Instagram. "You have made me feel so happy to be alive."

"I cannot wait for the future. I am doing okay for myself. I am sitting in a beautiful environment right now, taking some time for myself to relax and breathe."

"If I have any advice for my younger self, I would just tell myself, Listen, it is not all doom and gloom, even when you hit rock bottom."

"There is funny stuff in life all the time. Sometimes you have just got to find the funny."

Barker thanked her "Bridgerton" co-stars and revealed a piece of advice Claudia Jessie, who plays Eloise Bridgerton, once shared with her.

"She told me to flip the coin. It might be dull on one side, but flip the coin, and you will find it is shiny on the other," she said.

"It is training your mind to find the fun, find the light, and find the positive. It is a tough thing to do, but if you can get into the practice of doing that, you have got it."
