Jennifer Saunders takes prosthetic route for TV
London, Dec 20 (IANS) Comedienne-actress Jennifer Saunders looked unrecognizable as a villainous vicar for which she is donning prosthetics while shooting for the TV adaptation of David Walliams’ book “Grandpa’s Great Escape”.
Saunders underwent a complete transformation to appear opposite Walliams and Tom Courtenay in the new show.
In some photographs, Saunders can be seen wearing prosthetics, false teeth and a half bald cap for her role of Miss Dandy.
The evil character is seen posing as a vicar to convince families they must put their elderly relatives in care homes.
Speaking of her part, Saunders said: “I love playing villains — they’re so much more interesting than nice people. It’s so easy, it comes naturally.”
