Raegan Revord reveals why filming the latest episode of ‘Young Sheldon’ was particularly difficult.
The 15-year-old actress took to Instagram on Thursday to talk about how she and her mother were once involved in a car accident that had a lasting impact on their mental and physical health.
“Tonight’s episode was incredibly challenging for me personally to film,” Revord began in her caption. “On our way to work, my mother and I were hit by a drunk driver.”

She added, “The irony here is I’m pretty much in a car the entire episode, but you know what they say, ‘You’ve got to get back in the saddle.'”
After the incident, the “I See You” star claimed she suffered from panic attacks and post-traumatic stress for weeks until she was able to overcome her difficulties with the support of her cast and crew.
“I had full blown panic attacks and PTSD for weeks after the accident and the only way I got through it was because of the most loving and supportive cast and crew,” continued Revord. “They checked in with me along the way and never made me feel like finishing filming was a priority and that my well-being came first.”

Grace, 16, rushed to the comments to show her support for whatever Revord was able to overcome. “To see how much your show cared about you as an actor AND a person was really, really special🥺So proud of you for pushing through,” she wrote. “I love you ❤️ Thelma and Louise!!!”
