Actress gets into character

Glamorous Helen Flanagan has ditched her sexy image on the set of new film Mouse & Cat.

Swapping her groomed hair and heavy make-up for a scruffier look, she’s almost unrecognisable in pictures uploaded to her Instagram.

The snaps show the 22-year-old with a messy side ponytail, barely-there slap and an ashen complexion.

Her cheekbones and eyes are contoured to give her a tired, hollow image.

In one shot she’s seen getting her nails done and in another she’s holding a director’s clapboard.

#mouseandcat I’m supposed to look rough x,’ writes Helen.

Shooting away.

The former Coronation Street actress revealed she had a role in the film earlier this month by sharing a photo of the script with fans.

Film script :),’ she posted.
