Patricia Arquette & Joey King in 'The Act' - First Look Photos!

Joey King is completely transformed while in character for her upcoming Hulu series The Act.

The 19-year-old actress shaved her head and is wearing fake teeth for her role as Gypsy Blanchard, a girl trying to escape the toxic relationship she has with her overprotective mother (Patricia Arquette). Her quest for independence opens a Pandora’s box of secrets, one that ultimately leads to murder.

The first season of The Act, a seasonal anthology series that tells startling, stranger-than-fiction true crime stories, is based on the Buzzfeed article “Dee Dee Wanted Her Daughter To Be Sick, Gypsy Wanted Her Mom Murdered.”

“Getting into the emotion and getting into the character of Gypsy was something I was so excited to tackle, but I was also admittedly super-nervous for,” Joey told Entertainment Weekly. “This is the first time I’ve ever gotten the privilege to really, really transform myself for a role.”

“Transforming into Gypsy was one of the most challenging but most rewarding things I’ve ever done,” she added.

The Act premieres on Hulu on March 20!
