Candice Bergen: Bergen’s 2006 stroke

March 28, 2012 by staff 

Candice Bergen: Bergen’s 2006 stroke, Ageing actress Candice Bergen was hesitant about signing up to star in the new Broadway revival of Gore Vidal’s The Best Man because she feared she wouldn’t be able to remember her lines after suffering a minor stroke in 2006.

The Boston Legal star, 65, has finally admitted to the health crisis in a candid interview with New York Magazine, six years after her publicist dismissed the health crisis reports and insisted high blood pressure was the cause of a hospital stay.

Bergen reveals her memory is “not quite the same” since the incident, and she feared it would fail her if she agreed to take on the gruelling theatre schedule for the political play.

She tells the publication, “My concern with theatre was no retakes. I had no confidence in my memory.”
