Emmerdale's Leanna actress Mimi Slinger stuns fans with drastic hair transformation

By Gemma Jones

Former Emmerdale actress Mimi Slinger excited fans with a very drastic hair transformation.

Taking to Instagram, the 19-year-old shared a short clip of her posing with darkened locks. The soap star is normally blonde, but it seemed she had opted to go brunette instead.

Mimi captioned the video with: "Playing dress up". Some of her 69.5K followers were quick to comment that they loved her new look.


Alfie said: "YOU COULD LITERALLY PULL ANYTHING OFF NGL." Mark said: "Actually suits you."

Charlotte said: "You look like Keira Knightley here." Meanwhile, Rico said: "I reckon you would have made a perfect Priscilla Presley in the new 'Elvis' movie"

However, Mimi later explained on her Instagram Story that her brunette hair transformation was in fact a wig. She shared a picture of her still blonde, with the caption: "It was just a wig - still a blonde for all you asking haha."

Mimi is best known for playing Leanna Cavanagh on the ITV soap. She left after her character was brutally murdered by Meena Jutla last year. The actress had been a part of the Emmerdale cast since March 2018, but also makes music and works as a model.

Emmerdale airs weekdays at 7.30pm on ITV and the ITV Hub
