Joely Richardson to leave show to be by daughter's side during surgery

Nip/Tuck actress Joely Richardson has had to quit her job on the popular show for a family emergency concerning her teen daughter, Daisy, with her ex-husband Tim Bevan. Joely reportedly told TV Guide that when Daisy was born she was diagnosed with circulation problems, which would affect her life once she had developed into adolescence. British born Joely says she will return to London to help her daughter through multiple leg surgeries.

Surgeons and hospitals have been a big part of our lives. We were always told that she would have to have more surgeries when she got older. The time has come.

Joely says that she knew this day would come, and there was really nothing to think twice about.

I love my work but I had to be in two places at once and I thought, ‘If it were all over tomorrow, what would I regret?’ It would be not being there for her.’

She added that she does hope to one day be able to return to the show.
