Blood Red.

And what was the inspiration behind your change in hair colour?
Well it came from being doused in blood.....and I thought " Hey that colour suits me!"

Flashback to rehearsals for Misery.
Maeve and Jenny were working on the infamous "hobbling" scene. They were trying to see how much blood* to put in the concealed syringe, which would then spurt out at the appropriate moment.
* a mixture of fake blood and Imperial Leather bath gel
There I was standing at the far side of the stage minding my own business......when whoosh!
 An arch of red shot across the stage and rained down on my head.
"Oops, I guess that was a bit too much and too strong", someone suggested.
You think??
As I was washing it out I caught a glimpse of it in the mirror and thought
Hmm, that's interesting.
So I found myself at my hairdressers explaining my new look and the story behind it.
Who said blonds have more fun??
