In an interview regarding her guest appearances on Ray Donovan, in which she portrayed a breast cancer survivor, Davidtz revealed that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013, which had caused her to stop working and for which she underwent a mastectomy. The role was Davidtz’s first after undergoing treatment, and when informed that it required nudity, Davidtz worked with producer David Hollander to incorporate her partially-reconstructed right breast into the story, turning down the use of a prosthetic as a substitute for her right nipple that was due to be restored through surgery.”Somebody might not believe it if an actress pretended to have their nipple gone and said, ‘Look, I’m still sexual and pretty.’ But when it’s real, I hope it makes someone feel beautiful. I still feel beautiful,” said Davidtz regarding the message she wished to convey by taking the role.
