BE­HIND THE SCENES

TV Plus (South Africa) - - 7DE LAAN -

7de Laan’s head of hair and makeup The­ola Booyens says that one of the big­gest chal­lenges of turn­ing Hen­nie into Hen­riëtta “was to hide his Adam’s ap­ple. We had to use shad­ing tech­niques and ap­ply a few dif­fer­ent types of foun­da­tion”.

For the make-up, they used neu­tral colours and mas­cara, “But for the lips we went with bright pink lip­stick so that he doesn’t ap­pear too pale.” Hen­riëtta is Ma­trone’s cousin, so he wears her clothes and a straw­berry blond wig. “Hen­nie is tall and we were wor­ried that the clothes wouldn’t fit his body. But in the end we man­aged to get him to look like a woman,” says The­ola.
