Joey King Transforms Herself Into The Convicted Murderer Gypsy Rose Blanchard – For A New Role

When you’re an actor you get to live plenty of different lives and change your looks and appearance quite a lot. It seems pretty exciting when you think about it that way. There are so many actors who went through noticeable changes for specific roles, some had to lose a bit of weight, others need to add, some had to go through drastic hair changes, and so on. All in all, it’s probably pretty thrilling as well as lovely at the same time.

Similar is the case with American actress, Joey Lynn King. She is transforming herself into Gypsy Rose Blanchard for the newest role at hand. On Monday, she debuted a shaved head on Instagram and announced she will be playing the murderer in a new Hulu show called ‘The Act’. She said:

My name for the next 4 months, is Gypsy Rose Blanchard.

The full caption went like this:

My name for the next 4 months, is Gypsy Rose Blanchard. This story is very disturbing and I am honored to be able to portray it. What a wild ride this will be on “The Act”
