King shares she developed "bizarre" blood condition
King appeared on the show to promote her new movie Moonfall, and reflected on how she dealt with unforeseen internal complications back in 2012. She explained that she "developed this bizarre, rare, out-of-nowhere blood disorder" during the shoot for The Conjuring, which she revealed actually caused the red platelets in her body to disappear!
The actress called the situation "so dramatic" because of how sudden and severe it came on. "So I had a high risk of internal bleeding and I was potentially gonna need a blood transfusion," King shared, mentioning that she had two hospital appointments every day. However, what makes the situation even weirder is that she no longer has the condition!
