Viewers of BBC miniseries The Capture expressed their shock during the thriller’s finale on Tuesday night, as they struggled to recognise Famke Janssen.
The 54-year-old Dutch actress, who has long been celebrated for her natural beauty, appeared on screen as character Jessica Mallory in the final episode – but fans seemed to distracted from the storyline by her smooth skin and plumped cheeks.
Within moments of the star hitting the screen, viewers took to Twitter en masse to share their disbelief at her new look, with one writing: ‘Watching #TheCapture what on earth has Famke Janssen done to her face… she had such natural beauty.’ [sic]
