No, your eyes aren't playing tricks on you. Charlize Theron's latest red hair transformation might actually convince you that you're staring at another actress—it's that believable.
While on set for the forthcoming Netflix fantasy film, School for Good and Evil, Charlize decided to give fans a glimpse at her role of Lady Lesso. Charlize's ginger-hued coils and steampunk-esque style have us completely anxious to see how this new project unfolds...and to witness the wicked schemes her character is plotting.
"Ain’t no rest for the EVIL," the actress captioned on Instagram. "Can’t wait for you all to meet Lady Lesso."
Same here, Charlize!

Although this sweet sneak peek doesn't give away too much, the 180,000+ likes prove that fans are certainly loving the way she looks in her new role (even if those reds locks are just a wig). Hairstylist Adir Abergel is the one responsible for the style and is as much enamored with Lady Lesso's look as we are.
"The secret is out why I’ve been locked in Ireland," Adir wrote on Instagram while reposting Charlize's photos. "There aren’t many people I would have quarantined for....but for Lady Lesso, I would do anything. It has been so much fun creating this look with my genius boo @charlizeafrica and the legend @paulfeig."
Based on the bestselling series by Soman Chainani, School for Good and Evil is a fairytale turned upside down that propels fans into the magical Endless Woods. Here we meet Sophie and Agatha, who are headed for the School of Good and the School of Evil, respectively...until they're forced to switch places.
Since the series won't debut until 2022, we'll have to whet your appetite with some of our other favorite book-to-movie adaptations, including Cherry, The Pursuit of Love, and Little Fires Everywhere. Which story will you start with?
