The actor, best known from “Beverly Hills 90210” and “Charmed”, was a guest on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” on Thursday. There she spoke according to People about how she thinks the trials of recent years have made her more skilled at the job.
The 50-year-old made it clear that she does not buy the perception many have that having cancer in stage four means that life is soon over.
“People in stage four are written off immediately – by insurance companies, doctors and their boss,” she said.

Doherty further explained that in her case, all the experiences have meant that she as an actress has been given a sea of different emotions and moods she can dive into and use at work.
– So I think I’m a better actor than ever.

Doherty has in recent years been open about the health situation. Followers on Instagram have received photos from ups and downs.
On Thursday, Doherty shared the photos on Instagram, taken some time ago, to encourage other women to check themselves out.
«Is it beautiful? No. But I hope that by sharing that we all become more enlightened and familiar with what cancer looks like», She writes – and adds that finding humor in all the difficult things, helped her get through what seemed completely impossible.
