Rachel Brosnahan will happily change the colour of her hair in order to land a role.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star has brown hair in the hit Amazon Prime show, but the 29-year-old is, in fact, a natural blonde, and is always on board with undergoing an extreme dye job.

“If it’s for a job, I’ll try anything,” she told InStyle magazine. “But I actually (went back to my natural blonde) recently for a film called I’m Your Woman. My hair was dyed so dark, I didn’t know how long it would take to lift it back. Trying never to play the same character twice has given me a good excuse to change up my look a lot.”

Since rocking dark brown hair to play 1950s housewife-turned-comedian Miriam ‘Midge’ Maisel in the show, Rachel has found her blonde hair makes her unrecognisable to fans.

“But I think it’s more that I’m walking around in jeans, sneakers, and a T-shirt with little to no make-up on. I’m relatively incognito without the signature lipstick-dress-heels combo,” the star shared.

The Golden Globe-winning actress is currently serving as the celebrity spokesperson for skincare brand Cetaphil, and revealed that while she’s happy to overhaul her hair colour, her skin routine is a much simpler affair.

“I have really sensitive skin, so I can’t have a 12-step routine or change up my products every five minutes,” she explained. “And when I’m working, I wear so much make-up that my skin is constantly on the verge of being irritated.”

Rachel uses Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, Vintner’s Daughter serum, and SPF in the morning, and treats herself to Joanna Vargas facials when she’s in New York City for a “total skin reset”.

Blake Lively has signed a deal with Amazon Prime for a new scripted fashion TV series.

Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, made the announcement at the Television Critics Association summer press tour over the weekend, and confirmed bosses had closed an exclusive deal with the 31-year-old actress to develop and produce TV shows for the streaming giant.

“It took a long time, but we just closed our deal with Blake,” Salke said. “We closed a first-look deal and we’re talking and developing a show. It’s not ready…”

News of Lively’s partnership with Amazon first surfaced in October, and Salke revealed that the Gossip Girl star has pitched a scripted TV series set in the fashion world.

“It’s set in New York, there’s a fashion component,” she added.

The pregnant mother-of-two is also in talks to bring another project to life with Amazon Prime, but Salke kept those details under wraps.

“There’s another (project) that’s around a piece of IP (intellectual property),” she teased.

The news was announced on the same day Amazon executives revealed they had struck deals with Dirty John star Connie Britton and Lena Waithe, who is set to develop a horror TV series entitled Them.

And Blake’s project isn’t the only fashion-focused TV show on the streaming service – Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn are currently filming and executive producing their new show, Making the Cut, with supermodel Naomi Campbell, fashion editor Carine Roitfeld, as well as designers Joseph Altuzarra and Nicole Richie.
