Anna Friel is an English actress.

She was diagnosed with endometriosis when she was 28, after being rushed to hospital for emergency surgery and two blood transfusions for a ruptured ovarian cyst.

Anna says "One doctor told me it would be very hard if I left trying for a baby beyond the age of 30, which at the time was far from an ideal situation."

Anna gave birth to daughter, Gracie, in 2005.
