Personal life

Stone was diagnosed with latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA), also sometimes referred to as Type 1.5 diabetes, in March 2013, at the age of 20. She left acting at that time to study for a university degree, first in psychology and later switching to nursing, so that she could get a better understanding of her disease. [6] In January 2018, she was interviewed on the Diabetes Connections podcast about her diagnosis, and how it has affected her life and career.[7]
