Her manager, Alex Cole, said Fear was found safe by officers on Monday. "We understand she is not physically harmed, but as a precaution, is being assessed at a local hospital," Cole said in a statement to NBC News.

Fear is best known for her roles in television and film, which include portrayals of Dr. Jade McIntyre on a 2018 episode of "Doctor Who" and Harlow in "Kick-Ass 2."

The British actress, whose real name is Tanyaradzwa, studied literature at Kings' College University in London. As a student, she kicked off a busy acting career, which boosted her confidence. "It showed me I could push through and follow multiple interests if I showed diligence and patience," she told GQ in April.
