After suffering a “minor stroke” last week, Star Trek actress Nichelle Nichols is “going to get to go home soon,” the actress posted on her Facebook page.
Nichols, who played communications officer Lt. Uhura on the ‘60s Star Trek TV series, also thanked co-star George Takei and fans for their support.
Earlier, Nichols’ rep Zach McGinnis posted that an MRI showed she had a “minor stroke.” He added on Friday that Nichols, who was awake, alert and cheerful the night before, “She will start therapy this morning to evaluate how much damage was done, and try to determine her chances for a full or partial recovery. The therapists will test her hand at writing and legs to see if she can stand and walk on her own.”
She also posted on Friday that she’s “feeling much better.”
McGinnis had said on Thursday night that Nichols’ “right side has shown minor signs of mobility loss but she is not showing any signs of paralysis.”
He too thanked fans for their support.
McGinnis has not yet responded to The Hollywood Reporter‘s request for comment.
