You’re going to barely recognize Joey King when you see her in costume as Gypsy Blanchard for her role in the new Hulu series The Act!

The 19-year-old actress shaved her head for the show and she also wears fake teeth.

The Act, a seasonal anthology series that tells startling, stranger-than-fiction true crime stories, follows a girl trying to escape the toxic relationship she has with her overprotective mother (Patricia Arquette). Her quest for independence opens a Pandora’s box of secrets, one that ultimately leads to murder.

“Getting into the emotion and getting into the character of Gypsy was something I was so excited to tackle, but I was also admittedly super-nervous for,” Joey told Entertainment Weekly. “This is the first time I’ve ever gotten the privilege to really, really transform myself for a role.”

“Transforming into Gypsy was one of the most challenging but most rewarding things I’ve ever done,” she added.

The Act premieres on Hulu on March 20!
