Veteran actor Jeff Bridges said he ‘feels good’ after a two-year battle with non-Hodgkins lymphoma that also left him with Covid-19 at a time when he had no immune system.

The 72-year-old recently discussed his struggles with Entertainment Tonight at the premiere of his new TV series, The Old Man.

“Cancer wise, yes it went into remission, and Covid, you know, that made my cancer look like it was nothing, it was Covid,” he said.

“I had chemotherapy for cancer and that stripped me of all my immune system, so I took Covid and it wiped me out.”

And last month, the Academy Award winner told People : “I was so close to death. The doctors kept telling me, ‘Jeff, you have to fight.’ You don’t fight. “I’m already in surrender mode. I’m ready to go. I’m dancing to my death.

“I have no defense. That’s what chemotherapy is – it makes you lose all of your immune system. I have nothing against it!”

Bridges, who is also an executive producer on The Old Man, said his chemotherapy treatment and coronavirus diagnosis have resulted in a prolonged production halt.

All in all, it took almost three years to get the five-episode season up and ready for FX. The first season will finally air on June 16.

“‘We had a two-year break and then came back to it, and like we had a long weekend and I, you know, had this weird dream,’ he said. explain.

The show stars Bridges as former CIA agent Dan Chase, who is forced to go on the run out of fear of assassination.
