DAWN French has played many characters in her glittering career, but her latest role has left fans in shock after dramatically changing her looks.
The 65-year-old comedian swapped her bob-length brunette locks for purple hair when she played Dame Trot in the iconic pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk.
With purple hair, Dawn paired her elaborate look with a sparkly dress for the end of the show’s Christmas run.
It’s not Dawn’s first time on stage, as back in 2018 the star – who is one half of comedy duo French And Saunders – starred in Snow White.
And as The Sun reported at the time, the actress was set to earn a whopping £220,000 for her role at the London Palladium.
Aside from her purple hair, Dawn caught social media attention late last year when she appeared on the show The One and showed off silver hair.
She had previously joked on social media that she looked like Mr Whippy, but fans were quick to praise the star.
One said: “Dawn French looks freakin’ fab.”
Another added: “I absolutely love Dawn French’s hair on #theoneshow. She rocks the silver fox look.”
But not only the career of the Vicar Of Dibley star goes from success to success, but also her love life.
Since splitting from Lenny Henry in 2010 after more than two decades together, Dawn, who has a daughter with Lenny, met and married Mark Bignell in 2013.
Mark, who is an addict recovery therapist and has started a charity to reintegrate addicts into society, has settled with Dawn in Cornwall in a £3million home they share with their cat and dog .
Speaking of Mark’s job, Dawn said in a recent interview, “His work is quiet and understated – and it’s best that it stays that way.”
