Hugh Bonneville was hardly recognizable during his latest TV interview.
While appearing on BBC’s “The One Show,” the “Downton Abbey“ star showed off a brand new slimmed-down transformation.
The 56-year-old actor also sported a shaved hairdo, which further added to the makeover.
Bonneville, who plays the Earl of Grantham in the hit period drama, drew a lot of attention from viewers, who were stunned by his brand new appearance.
“Wow, I didn’t recognise Hugh Bonneville on #TheOneShow to start with! What a transformation!” wrote one fan on Twitter.
“Had to do a ‘double take’. Didn’t recognise Hugh Bonneville at first. Looking amazing,” said a second.
“Hugh Bonneville or Bear Grylls?” asked another.
According to The Daily Mail, Bonneville enlisted a personal trainer 10 years ago on the advice of his wife, but it seems that lockdown may have inspired him to kick his exercise regime up a notch.
