Nikki Reed reportedly fell so ill at the recent Comic-Con event that she had to be hospitalised.

The 27-year-old actress fell ill while at the annual Comic-Con event in San Diego over the weekend. She apparently had severe issues with her throat, leading her to seek treatment and be ordered to remain at the clinic so doctors could assess her. Eventually they suggested she'd become unwell because she was dehydrated and exhausted, with Nikki reportedly blaming her intense schedule for the issue.

"Nikki said that it was probably because she’s been flying so much for work. She’s been to 20 cities in eight days for work obligations," an insider told New York Daily News' Confidenti@l column.

The Twilight star was allowed to leave after a night, and immediately jumped on a plane so she could be with her husband Ian Somerhalder. She travelled to Atlanta, where he is working, but couldn't be there for long as she had more appearances planned.

Following some time with her spouse of two months, Nikki went to Nashville to attend a party for a whisky brand.

"[She] was a bit more soft-spoken," an insider claimed, “[but she] danced to country music performances and sipped on Bonnie Rose cocktails.”

Nikki is now thought to be well and truly on the mend, and she has some exciting news to spur her on the road to full health. It's been confirmed that she is joining TV show Sleepy Hollow, where she will play a character called Betsy Ross.

Ian is sure to be delighted for his wife, who he couldn't stop gushing about earlier this week.

"There’s a lot of passion in our house. Nikki’s incredible,” he told E! Online. “She’s turned the house into an animal rescue... Selflessly, literally giving her resources and her home and her family’s time and her time to saving animals in need."
