She added: “I myself underwent treatment for Breast Cancer last summer. Until now- I didn’t have the courage to go public. 8 months on I’m back in stilettos and filming 14 hour days. For those undergoing treatment right now- there is light at the end of this tunnel.”

Bellman’s Leverage co-star Beth Riesgraf (aka Parker) posted her support. “We got you, G, and you got this… Always and forever,” along with the hashtags #Warrior and #Queen.

Bellman plays grifter Sophie Deveraux on TNT’s Leverage, its five-season run wrapping up in 2012. Bellman is currently reprising the role on Leverage: Redemption, the follow-up that debuted on Freevee in 2021 and will move to Prime Video for its upcoming third season.
