Nicole Kidman Is Unrecognizable On The Set Of Her New Series

Nicole Kidman is one of the most recognizable faces in Hollywood, right? The Hawaii-born actress (via Britannica) has been in the biz since the 1980s, and we'd know her long locks from anywhere. However, she's made a pretty drastic change to her appearance and looks almost unrecognizable on the set of her new series, which is currently filming in Los Angeles after commencing shooting at the end of May (via Variety Insight).

On the set of upcoming Apple TV+ series "Roar," which Kidman is both the executive producer and star of, she showcased a strawberry-blonde pixie wig, a sharp contrast to the longer hair we're used to seeing on the Australian-American actress (via Daily Mail). She took to Instagram to show off the snap of herself, which proved to be a real hit with her followers, despite some of them needing reassurance that the cut was, in fact, a wig, and not the 54-year-old's real hair.

In the Instagram photo, Nicole Kidman is facing the side and raising her left hand into the air and smiling, while showing off the pixie 'do. The "Just Go With It" star captioned the snap "On set #Roar #FemaleFilmmakers," a nod to the female-heavy cast and crew of the upcoming show (via Daily Mail).

An anthology-style series, "Roar" was created by Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, who also created the popular Netflix comedy-drama "GLOW," and it's based on a collection of short stories from Cecelia Ahern (via Deadline). With a glittering all-star cast including not only Kidman but also Cynthia Erivo, Merritt Wever, and Alison Brie, each story looks at the experiences of women, and they've been described as "darkly comic feminist fables" (via TheWrap).

Eight episodes, each one 30 minutes long, are set to air. They will all be told from a female point of view — it's the first of Flahive and Mensch's projects with Apple+ TV since signing a new deal with the service, which also showcases the recent Oprah Winfrey and Prince Harry series "The Me You Can't See" (via Variety).
