In her lengthy post, she also took a moment to recognize her family, friends, hospital roommate and sister Megan Prescott, who first shared the news of her accident and the complex surgery that followed on her own Instagram post. At the time, Megan wrote that Kathryn “nearly avoided paralysis,” before sharing that doctors were “hopeful” the Finding Carter actress would make a full recovery.
“Thank you to my sister for moving heaven and earth to reach me during a global pandemic and travel ban,” the Skins star wrote in the caption of the social media post. “Thank you to all my friends for being there without hesitation and sending their mothers, friends and sisters when they couldn’t. Thanks to my roommate at the hospital for being who she is and making me laugh even when there wasn’t much to laugh about. Thank you to everyone who reached out and helped where they could. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.”
In her first public statement since the accident, Kathryn also shared the story of a woman who was there when emergency workers took her to the hospital. The actress said the woman provided her with a rock that has become a metaphorical source of support.

I realized I had been holding on to it ever since without realizing it.”
She added, “Thank you to that woman.”
