Natalie Cassidy looks very different to Sonia ahead of birthday night out
The soap actress took to Instagram to reveal she was heading out to “party” in celebration of younger sister Ellia’s 30th birthday on Saturday night.
Natalie, 38, who has played much-loved character Sonia Fowler since she first appeared in Walford in 1993, got all glammed up for the occasion.
Taking a short clip of her new look to show off to her social media fans, she explained she was “ready for a little party”.
Looking very different from her character, who is often seen with slick-backed hair and oversized jumpers, Natalie let her hair down in loose curls.
The actress opted for a light palette of make-up, including mascara, black eye liner and a nude glossy lip for the special night out.
She donned a low-cut black dress and accessorised with a large black necklace as she chatted to her fans in the brief clip.
“Oh, I thought it was a photo,” Natalie explained. “Off to celebrate Ellia’s birthday tonight. Got all glammed up, all dolled up, haven’t I?
“You know what I mean? I’m ready for a little party!”
She went on to post a snap of herself and Elia – who looked equally glam – as she tagged her sister wrote: “Let’s celebrate.”
