The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - MONDAY EXTRA -

Bates (pic­tured) has thanked for­mer Two and a Half Men star Char­lie Sheen af­ter her guest ap­pear­ance as his char­ac­ter’s ghost won her an Emmy Award on the week­end, just days af­ter she con­firmed her breast can­cer di­ag­no­sis. The Mis­ery star opened up about her health cri­sis ear­lier this week, re­veal­ing she re­cently un­der­went a dou­ble mastectomy af­ter doc­tors found a lump in her breast. She re­ceived some good news on Satur­day when she was named a win­ner at the 2012 Prime­time Cre­ative Arts Emmy Awards, which are handed out a week be­fore the main Prime­time Emmy Awards cer­e­mony. Bates landed the Out­stand­ing Guest Ac­tress tro­phy for her cameo ap­pear­ance in hit sit­com Two and Half Men, in which she chan­nelled the show’s for­mer star Sheen to play his char­ac­ter’s ghost. Sheen was writ­ten out of the sit­com af­ter he was fired in 2011 and af­ter her win, Bates thanked the ac­tor for help­ing her achieve Emmy suc­cess. She writes: ‘‘Heart­felt thanks Emmy vot­ers! . . . ( Two and a Half Men cre­ator) Chuck Lorre, Jon Cryer, Ash­ton Kutcher & cast & crew of 2½ Men for this hon­our . . . But most of all my thanks & re­spect to the inim­itable Char­lie Sheen with­out whom this recog­ni­tion sim­ply would not have been pos­si­ble.’’ The ac­tress has an­other chance to win an Emmy Award as she is nom­i­nated in the Best Ac­tress cat­e­gory for her role in can­celled drama se­ries Harry’s Law at the next prize­giv­ing.
