Just last week, Marais opened up about her struggles with mental health.

The Packed To The Rafters star told TV Week: ‘I just think it’s important to talk about depression. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. And the more we talk about it as a community, the more we can remove the stigma.’

Marais has won three Logies in the past, taking home the award for Most Popular new Female Talent in 2009 and Most Popular Actress in 2016 and 2017.

Wishing the star a speedy recovery!
