blurred-reality.com – Talking about disability, Farrah Mackenzie was previously diagnosed with Primary Immune Deficiency Disorder. In 2017, her immune system was even replaced with a new one. Even though she looks healthy now, she is struggling with growing.
Leave the World Behind on Netflix, based on Rumaan Alam‘s book of the same name, is the apocalyptic thriller movie, written and directed by Sam Esmail and stars Julia Roberts, Mahershala Ali, Ethan Hawke, Myha’la, and Kevin Bacon. The movie focuses on the Sandford and Scott family.
They deal with a “national emergency” that threatens to destroy the United States. What begins as a blackout quickly escalates into a nationwide tragedy. While attempting to protect their lives, the two families are forced to watch explosions and anarchy. They struggle to figure out what’s going on in their country throughout the apocalyptic drama.
On the other hand, many viewers have noticed that Farrah Mackenzie, who plays the role of Rose in the movie, does not look normal. As a result, some people believe she has some kind of disability. Well, let’s find out what it is.
Disability: Farrah Mackenzie Was Given a New Immune System When She Was Just 11 Years Old!
It’s true Farrah Mackenzie (@farrahmackenzie) does not look like a normal 18-year-old. Just from her appearance, most of us can easily assume that she has a medical condition. It isn’t a disability though. The Rose actress was diagnosed with Primary Immune Deficiency Disorder when she was just 6 years old.
According to reports, she was constantly sick since she was 2 years old. On June 30, 2017, her immune system was replaced as her previous immune system attacked her own organs, primarily her lungs, causing her to have breathing problems and limiting her growth. She was given a new immune system through a bone marrow transplant from a healthy donor.
Farrah Mackenzie’s disability is the reason why she is so small for someone who is 18 years old.

Primary Immune Deficiency Disorders (PIDD) is a collection of rare, hereditary disorders that weaken the function of the immune system, leaving people vulnerable to infections. These illnesses are caused by genetic flaws that impair numerous immunological components such as antibodies, white blood cells, and complement proteins.
Recurrent infections, delayed healing, and autoimmune disorders are some of the symptoms. Diagnosis requires specialist tests, and treatments focus on infection management, frequently involving immunoglobulin replacement therapy, antibiotics, or stem cell transplants. PIDD requires lifelong management and care, affecting the quality of life while also building resilience via vigilance, competent medical support, and continued research for improved therapies.
As of today, Farrah Mackenzie is still very small for her age but she is living her life happily, without struggling with her health every day. Her performance in Leave the World Behind is incredible and we hope to see her more often on our screens or in the theaters.
What Is Leave the World Behind About?
Leave the World Behind introduces viewers to the Sandford family, which includes Amanda (Roberts) and Clay (Hawke), as well as their teenage children Rose and Archie (Farrah Mackenzie and Charlie Evans), who have departed Brooklyn for a summer vacation at a magnificent modern beach house in the Hamptons.
Unbeknownst to them, the world as they know it is about to come to an end, and the owner of their beautiful rental, G.H. Scott (Ali), arrives in the middle of the night with his daughter, Ruth (Myha’la Herrold), seeking refuge from a strange blackout affecting New York City.
Leave the World Behind is now streaming on Netflix.

At first, the families attempt to share the house awkwardly (with Amanda being particularly bad). However, it soon becomes evident that alarming events in the vicinity are occurring that cannot be rationally explained, such as cell towers collapsing, planes falling from the sky, and weird natural phenomena and animal behavior. Amanda and G.H. fight to keep their families safe and devise a survival plan as tensions mount and resources deplete.
