As Raegan Revord spoke about in her Instagram post following the premiere of “A Stolen Truck and Going on the Lam,” she sustained lingering emotional trauma from the car accident she was in prior to filming the “Young Sheldon” episode. “I had full blown panic attacks and PTSD for weeks after the accident and the only way I was able to get through it was because of the most loving and supporting cast and crew,” the actress explained. “They checked in with me along the way and never made me feel like finishing filming was a priority, that my well being came first.”
Even though filming was difficult for Revord, she was still enthusiastic about the episode and working with Mckenna Grace. “When I read the script I remember being so excited to film it and being even more excited to film it with my friend (who was also instrumental in getting me through some of those tough times- love you Kenny),” the star wrote. Grace shared a warm message in response to Revord’s post. “Getting to see how much your show cared for you as an actor AND a human being was really really special,” she commented. “So proud of you for fighting through this.”
Between the car incident and other previous instances like the “Young Sheldon” stunt that once left Revord crying, one can only hope that the star is in for a more relaxing filming process going forward.
