Sheridan Smith reveals dramatic transformation as she announces exciting news
Sheridan Smith has debuted a dramatically different look, as she announces the exciting news that she is set to star in a brand new indie film.
The 36-year-old star shared the news on her social media that she is taking part in the soon-to-be-released‘The More You Ignore Me’, a heartwarming new comedy-drama written by none other than Jo Brand.
Actress Sheridan revealed a sneak peek from the film. The actress shared a tweet originally posted by Dawn French, of Sheridan in the lead role of Gina – with Jo following behind.

And the superstar has undertaken a huge transformation in order to prepare for her latest role. While Sheridan usually sports a sleek blonde barnet, her character in the upcoming flick has darker, more unruly locks.
Sheridan’s new look is fitting for tortured character Gina, whose efforts to be a loving mother and wife are threatened by her declining mental health.

But despite its dark themes the film also manages to bring warmth and humour to Gina’s story through the portrayal of her relationship with her daughter, Alice, played by Ella Hunt.
“For Alice, the big bad monster wasn’t green and hiding under the bed, it sat in the kitchen saying ‘bollocks’ a lot. Prone to psychotic episodes, or ‘on the road to bonkersville’ as Alice’s dad would say, Alice’s mum Gina isn’t easy to live with,” reads the description of the original novel penned by Jo.
Of the movie adaptation, Jo said on The Graham Norton show, “I am really proud of it but not sure whether it is good or not. I can’t really believe it has happened.”
And it looks as though fans of Sheridan can’t wait for the release of her latest project. Many of her followers sent excited social media messages to the share, to reveal how much they’re looking forward to seeing the flick.
One fan wrote, ‘We have been waiting so long for this, can’t believe it’s just around the corner. So excited! x’
While another agreed, commenting, ‘Can’t wait to watch this film 🎥 will be fantastic I’m sure 😊👍👏👏👏❤❤’
A trailer has also been unveiled ahead of the film’s release – and we have to say, it look’s like it’s going to be a great watch.
Sheridan’s new film is set to be released in cinemas on 6th July.
