Betsy Brandt says the intensity of the final "Breaking Bad" episodes "physically affected" her, The Associated Press reports.
"There were days shooting -- these last eight episodes especially -- I just felt sick. My chest would get all tight and I just felt awful," she said.
Brandt plays Marie Schrader, sister-in-law to chemistry teacher turned drug lord Walter White (Bryan Cranston) on the show, which airs its series finale at 9 p.m. Sunday on AMC. In an interview Wednesday she said she did a lot of crying, too.
"After we'd get a take then I'd just sort of start sobbing because you gotta get it out before you go home," she said.
The actress says the weightiness of "Breaking Bad" had a lot to do with her decision to take on the comedy "The Michael J. Fox" show as her next role. She plays Annie Henry, wife of Fox's character in the series that premiered Thursday at 9 p.m.
Brandt says when she read the "Breaking Bad" finale script, she told show creator Vince Gilligan it was "the perfect ending for this show."
Amber Tamblyn plays Charlie Harper's previously unknown daughter, Jenny, on the 11th season of CBS's "Two and a Half Men," which premiered Thursday night, the AP reports.
Jenny and her father (who was played by Charlie Sheen) have something in common: a love for women. She's a hard-partying bisexual.
Tamblyn, whose TV credits include the dramas "General Hospital," "Joan of Arcadia" and "House M.D.," said she wasn't sure if she wanted to join "Two and a Half Men."
She said her agent told her, "Well, hang on. It's a genius role. ... She's very into alcohol and women."
Tamblyn, who has yet to see an episode of the show, said she's amazed by its bawdy, sexual humor.
"It is very fun to play," the 30-year-old actress said of her character. "I am shocked at what they get away with on the show. It's kind of incredible. Just the jokes and the language and the euphemisms for genitalia."
Michael J. Fox has inspired millions with his courageous optimism and self-deprecating humor while battling Parkinson's disease, People reports.
Yet the veteran comedic actor, 52, whose "The Michael J. Fox Show" debuted on NBC Thursday, says he suffered through a tremendously dark period shortly after his diagnosis in 1991 and turned to alcohol for comfort.
"My first reaction to it was to start drinking heavily," he told Howard Stern on his Sirius XM Radio show Wednesday. "I used to drink to party, but now I was drinking alone and ... every day."
"Once I did that it was then about a year of like a knife fight in a closet, where I just didn't have my tools to deal with it," he adds.
He credits his wife, Tracy Pollan, 53, for pulling him out of his funk. He says she looked at him one day and said, "Is this what you want?"
Fox knew the answer was no and headed to Alcoholics Anonymous and, eventually, therapy, which he says taught him to "take one day at a time."
"Eventually, things got pretty great," he says.
The actor launched The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research, which has raised millions for the disease.
