During this time, she found solace and purpose as a caregiver in London, working with adults with special needs.

Despite the unexpected turn in her career, Dominic emphasized that caring for others brought her immense joy and a renewed sense of purpose.

She said: “In 2001/2002 I stopped acting. I left the [movie] industry and moved to London because it was a very dark period in my life. I fell out with some friends I considered family. And I just gave up acting for a while. I needed to get out of that space for a minute.

“And then I moved to London and gave up stardom. You won’t believe this.

”I’ve never told people before. While in London, I was trying to make ends meet so I started working in a care home as a caregiver for adults with special needs. While some might view it as a step-down, I don’t. Taking care of others brought me joy and purpose at a time”
