Selma revealed in August how much she missed horse riding

Selma chose to announce her diagnosis via Instagram last October.

Captioning a photo, she wrote: "I have #multiplesclerosis. I am in an exacerbation.

"By the grace of the lord, and will power and the understanding producers at Netflix, I have a job. A wonderful job. I am disabled. I fall sometimes. I drop things. My memory is foggy. And my left side is asking for directions from a broken gps. But we are doing it."
