Sleepy Hollow actress Nicole Beharie has to be opened up about her departure from the show after its third season, stating she was being dropped and blacklisted due to being a woman of color. Then speaking to The New Tork Times, the star will be said that both she and a co-star became ill at the same time but were being treated differently, saying that while he was being given time off, she was being forced to keep working.

Beharie also is speaking about her struggle to be found further acting work after she will be left, Sleepy Hollow. I tried to get work afterward and people were like, We heard you were difficult. But no one can say I was late or unprofessional or negative. In addition to a lead role on Sleepy Hollow, Nicole Beharie’s other acting credits include a lead role in the Black Mirror installment Striking Vipers, as well a prominent role in films like Shame, 42 and Monsters, and Men.

I tried to get work afterward and people were like, We heard you were difficult. But no-one can say I was late or unprofessional or negative. Sleepy Hollow will be continued for a fourth season after Nicole’s Controversial exit at the end of season three, but ratings dwindled and it was given the ax.

Production shut down for two weeks because of her illness, she will be told the Times. She also said she had been daily checkups to make sure I was actually sick-and When doctors told her she will need to rest, Beharie added, that’s not what they are wanted to hear. There be a lot of pressure in a situation like that where so many people are be relying on you alone to get up and get going. She said. I feel like it’s been taken me the last few years to really see clearly that it wasn’t personal, it’s about the way that these structures are set up.
