Former Buffy Actress Emma Caulfield Announces Her MS Diagnosis

After keeping her MS diagnosis secret for over a decade, Buffy and WandaVision star Emma Caulfield has decided to speak out about it. When Emma Caulfield (formerly of Buffy the Vampire Slayer) was diagnosed with MS, fans were shocked.

The 49-year-old actor disclosed her MS diagnosis to Vanity Fair after keeping it secret for more than ten years. In 2010 while Caulfield was working on Gigantic under executive producer Marti Noxon, he awoke one morning with the sensation that “a million ants were crawling on the left side of my face.”

Wanda Vision’s star sought the advice of an acupuncturist after experiencing mysterious symptoms and she also had an MRI performed. Facial muscle weakness that improves with time was the initial diagnosis made by Caulfield’s neurologist.

The MRI results were delivered to Caulfield by her doctor while she was getting her hair and makeup done for Gigantic. “He then informed me, “You have MS.” In an instant, “In this case, the performer was reminiscing.”

“Experiencing that was similar to having an out-of-body adventure. No that can’t be right, I tell myself. Incredulous, I ask, “What are you talking about?” Vision loss, fatigue, and inability to coordinate are just some of the symptoms of multiple sclerosis, a disease that attacks the central nervous system.

Caulfield’s father had been diagnosed with the same condition before she herself was. It is more common for MS to be passed down from parents to offspring. Caulfield married actor Mark Leslie Ford in 2017, the couple has a daughter who is 6 years old.

The former Buffy the Vampire Slayer star revealed her MS diagnosis to the public because she wanted to be there for her daughter. Because of “luck of the draw,” Caulfield estimated that she had a 30% greater chance of contracting the illness. She is such a remarkable little creature and it got me thinking about her and how happy and active she is.

Working On WandaVision Was Difficult

Caulfield explained that her MS symptoms tend to worsen in the summer due to the combination of heat and stress. The actor, however, made it through the outdoor filming of WandaVision in Atlanta’s oppressive heat.

We never planned on shooting any of these large outdoor costume scenes [in late summer], Caulfield said. “It was expected that everything would occur in the spring but it never did. Something pushed it.”

Agatha: Coven of Chaos will mark the return of Caulfield’s Sarah Proctor/Dottie Jones character from Wanda Vision. Agatha Harkness, the powerful witch from WandaVision, will be the main character in the upcoming sequel and spinoff.

The 49-year-old actor had this to say about her role in the new show: “That is super fun.” “Actually, there are a few things. There’s something else I can’t really reveal, though.”
