Isidingo’s been around since 1998 and it’s time to give their char­ac­ters a makeover, start­ing with hu­man rights lawyer An­gelique (Shan­non Esra). The soapie’s pro­duc­tion team want to make things fresher, edgier and up­dated, says SABC3 make-up artist Amy Spraw­son, who adds that the wardrobe and make-up teams were ex­cited when they got the go-ahead for the re­vamp that’s been in plan­ning for months. “An­gelique is the first to get a new look and we were given a brief to make her look sexy and edgy.”


Amy de­cided to work with Shan­non’s real hair rather than a wig. “We’re try­ing to make the change grad­ual and as au­then­tic as pos­si­ble,” Amy ex­plains. “Angie was a straight-haired brunette, but now we’re aim­ing to cre­ate a lighter caramel colour. There will also be fudge­coloured high­lights as time goes on. To cre­ate tex­ture, we’re go­ing to softly curl Shan­non’s hair – this will also add light­ness to her face.”


As for An­gelique’s make-up, Amy’s tak­ing her from toned-down and de­mure to a sexy and sassy minx. “We’ve done A new hairdo and red lip­stick are just part of the over­haul.


So how does Shan­non feel about her char­ac­ter’s makeover? “It makes Angie look more so­phis­ti­cated, fem­i­nine and ro­man­tic. She looked fine be­fore but now she’s bet­ter rep­re­sented and the hard as­pects of her are now softer and sex­ier,” she says. Will the lawyer find love with her new look? “Along with her new styling, we’re also go­ing to see changes in Angie’s life – there’s go­ing to be a fu­ture love in­ter­est and a whole new side to her per­son­al­ity,” ex­plains Shan­non. While Angie is de­but­ing her new style on Tues­day 14 June, the Isidingo make-up and wardrobe teams will al­ready be work­ing on their next makeover pro­ject – busi­ness­woman Nikiwe Sibeko (Linda Sokhulu), so keep your eyes peeled!
