"Guys, we just learned how to take a picture of ourselves on my phone! How cool is this? @veephbo Table read episodes 2 & 3 Season 7, baby!" Louis-Dreyfus wrote on Instagram on Thursday, alongside a selfie of her and her co-workers.

Another photo of the cast and crew at the Veep table read, which took place at Paramount Studios, was posted on Veep's Instagram page on Wednesday.

Louis-Dreyfus underwent several rounds of chemotherapy over the past few months and completed her last one in January. A month, later, she had surgery. Last month, she and husband Brad Hall vacationed in Hawaii and Ireland.
