Mischa Barton’s co-star in her new TV show, The Beautiful Life, tells OK! that she was back to work yesterday after her recent breakdown.
Nico Tortorella, who plays a model named Kai on the new CW show, revealed at the launch party for the Blackberry Tour for Sprint that the Homecoming actress was at Wednesday’s table-read for the first episode and was “doing great” and “ready to work.”
He added that he and the cast were ready to help Mischa get back into normal life after the meltdown which saw her hospitalized and held by the authorities for her own safety.
“A bunch of [stuff] has gone down — you can’t really help it,” he told OK! at the party at NYC’s Thompson hotel on the Lower East Side.
“Everybody wants to see her get better and I think she will.”
The actor, who first met Mischa three month ago when they shot the pilot, said that he and the rest of the cast were ready to support her though this tough time.
“I’m here for her; I think we all are,” he said. “She has good people fostering good situations.”
