Christina Applegate was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis ahead of the final season of Dead to Me, and this might be her last live-action role. The Emmy-winning actress is planning to stop acting in front of the camera and mostly focus on voiceover work in the future.

Applegate recently sat down with Vanity Fair to discuss her plans for the future and said she’s done working in front of the camera. She’s not sure what the future holds in the face of her multiple sclerosis diagnosis, but she wouldn’t mind if Dead to Me was her last live-action project.

“Ping-pong is so much more fun when the other person is just as good as you are. I’m probably not going to work on-camera again, but I’m so glad that I went out with someone who is by far the greatest actress I’ve ever worked with in my entire life,” she explained while discussing the acclaimed Netflix dramedy that she filmed alongside Linda Cardellini.

Applegate also discussed the animated series based on Married… with Children, the 80s sitcom that put her on the map. She’s attached to reprise her role alongside Ed O’Neill, Katey Sagal, and David Faustino, but this project is still in the early stages of development.
