Debra Messing - Debra Messing Suffers Allergic Reaction At Drama League Awards

Actress Debra Messing required medical attention backstage at the New York Drama League Awards on Friday (17May13) after suffering an allergic reaction.

The former Will & Grace star was co-hosting the theatre prizegiving, but she almost missed out on the show after a health scare.

Paramedics were called to the Marriott Marquis Times Square, where the ceremony took place, and treated Messing so she could take to the stage as planned.

A source tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, "Apparently Debra's allergic to chicken. She was served chicken by accident. She was a real theatrical pro! The Emts (emergency medical technicians) wanted to take her to the hospital, but she refused to go. She stayed to the end."

A representative for the actress adds, "She's a true show-must-go-on person."
