The truth about Perdita Weeks’ disability
According to sources, it has been revealed that Perdita Weeks has no disability, and she is fine. The actress is a well-known personality from her childhood and is the older sister of actor Rallo Weeks and the younger sister of actor Honeysuckle Weeks. There is no need to hide the disability regarding Perdita’s legs as she is a well-known British actress. Being physically stable indicates that she is pretty well and has no congenital disability.
Where did the rumour start?
The rumour of her disability started when she was doing the character of Julia Higgins in the CBs/NBC crime drama Magnum P.I. In the drama’s second season,’ ‘Mondays Are for Murders, the actress pretended to have an injury to avoid doing work with a Spy named Thomas for the murder investigation, due to which the position was substituted by Magnum (Jay Hernandez). This specific murder case required undercover agents to solve the office murder case. Julia didn’t reveal the kind of injury she suffered and pretended to be as if something had happened to her legs due to her limitations in movement—Julia’s falsehood of pretending to be injured.
Perdita, in real life, doesn’t limp as she limps only to imitate Juliet Higgins’s limping gait in the Magnum’s episode of ‘Mondays is for Murder’. In the whole scenario, it was not intended for Julia to be declared disabled in real life. However, the actress is an expert in her field for faking her injury, which led people to think that she was disabled, but she is perfectly fine and doing her best.
