APPLIED TO REHABILITATION CENTER 15 TIMES
Perry, who applied to the rehabilitation center 15 times in his life, said, “The doctors said I had a 2 percent chance of surviving. I was in a coma for two weeks. I was treated in the hospital for 5 months. I was connected to a breathing machine.”
“My co-stars always supported me during and after we shot the drama. We were like penguins.”
“Whoever among us wasn’t feeling well, we would gather around him until he rose up,” he said. Perry’s book about his life will be out on November 1st.
