Since becoming a pop culture icon as Laura Palmer on "Twin Peaks," life has been difficult for actress Sheryl Lee.
Lee was diagnosed with neutropenia, a rare blood disorder in 2007.
"From the age of 40, I went through illness for four and a half years," she told UK's London Evening Standard. "I tried to keep working through it as much as I could, but I was physically not able to do it as much."
Since her character was killed off of the 1990s TV show, Lee has struggled to find work because she looked "sick."
"I did a few independent films, but there’s no money in them. So everything was taken away — my health, my career, my finances."
Lee was eventually forced to sell some of her "Twin Peaks" memorabilia to pay her bills.
"I wish I still had them but I had to sell them too. I now live a very, very quiet, simple life in a tiny little guest house on somebody else's ranch."
