By Greta Heggeness,

Actress and former model Amber Valletta, who is best known for her role as Lydia Davis on ABC’s hit series Revenge, has recently revealed she struggles with alcohol and drug addiction.

The actress has appeared in a video for Mind Body Green , where she revealed the details of her long battle with addiction to drugs and alcohol, admitting that it has been an issue since she was eight years old.

“I suffer from a disease called addiction,” Valletta explained. “I’ve had it for as long as I can remember.”

Although Valletta admits her addiction will always be a struggle, her hope is that coming clean will raise awareness of the cause.

"My hope is that someone, somewhere in this room, out of this room will hear something that will help them and perhaps get them out of the shadows and the darkness of addiction and bring them into the light," the actress explained to Mind Body Green.

According to People, the actress will be appearing in a new series called Legends, which is set to premiere in August on TNT.
