EastEnders star Balvinder Sopal has posted a video showing fans how she transforms into her character Suki Panesar.
Arriving in January last year, Suki’s introductory storyline allowed fans to realise she would soon become one of the show’s latest villains.
When Suki arrived, her children Kheerat (Jaz Deol), Vinny (Shiv Jalota), Jags (Amar Adatia) and Ash (Gurlaine Kaur Garcha) all thought she was terminally ill.
However, when Jean (Gillian Wright) – a beloved character battling cancer at the time – met Suki, it wasn’t long until she picked up on some anomalies and concluded Suki was in fact lying about having cancer.
Since then, Suki has become a character known for controlling her children and having a heart of stone, and one thing that’s become quite iconic for her is Suki’s beehive hairstyle.
Of course, due to the Coronavirus restrictions set in place, actors are still required to do their own hair and makeup for their characters, which has allowed Balvinder Sopal to show fans a glimpse of how she transforms into Suki Panesar.
Posting a time-lapse video on her Instagram, Balvinder is seen backcombing the top section of her hair and pinning it back into the hairstyle Suki so often has.
‘Building the beehive! Stepping into the shoes of Suki Panesar’ she wrote.
Many of Balvinder’s followers have given their thoughts on the hair how-to, with one fan saying ‘this is one of the best videos ever!’.
