These Jaw-Dropping TV Transformations Are Guaranteed to Have You Tuning In

The Show: The Girl From Plainsville
When It Premieres: This spring on Hulu
The Transformation: To portray Carter, who was convicted in 2017 of the involuntary manslaughter of her boyfriend, Conrad Roy III, in a texting-suicide case that made headlines, the Maleficent star darkened her eyebrows and wore a facial prosthetic. The resemblance is, to quote January Jones on Instagram, “Uncanny wow.”

In an interview with Entertainment Weeklywriters, executive producers and co-showrunners Liz Hannah and Patrick Macmanus said it didn’t take much work to turn Fanning into Carter. “The first time that I met [Fanning], I was really struck by how eerily similar they actually looked just naturally,” Macmanus said. “It was something that around the table when we all met, we all talked about.”

They added that Fanning just wore some light makeup and a forehead prosthetic, which helped to match Carter’s hairline. According to Hannah, they kept things simple because they didn’t want her appearance to be “distracting.”
