Sheridan Smith stars in new children’s series, Hansel & Gretel: After Ever After, and she has certainly transformed for the role.
After Ever After is the annual festive Sky special that gives new life to classic fairy tales by re-imagining the endings. The show stars, actor and comedian, David Walliams (Little Britain) as the Troll, who also narrates, alongside Sheridan Smith (Gavin & Stacey) as the Witch. The show also features Mark Addy (The Thin Blue Line) playing Englebert, Bill Bekele (Matilda The Musical) as Hansel and Lilly Aspell (Wonder Woman) as Gretel.
Sheridan Smith totally transforms in the role, donning a grey wig and prosthetic witch-y nose. “I nodded off and then when I first saw it it was mad – such a transformation,” she told The Sun.
Hansel & Gretel: After Ever After airs on Sky Max and Now TV from 23rd December at 8pm
