This Is How Miss Trunchbull From “Matilda” Looks Now

Matilda

Almost every one of us remembers the film adaption of the Roald Dahl novel, Matilda. The film features a lovable and brilliant young girl and a menacing and easy-to-hate villain of a principal.

Mara Wilson, the actress who played Matilda, grew up to be as smart as the character she played. She has written novels and spoke in a lot of podcasts. But besides her, have you ever wondered what happened to the terrifying, mean, Miss Trunchbull?

Even though she was an evil character in the film, in real life, Pam Ferris is way less frumpy. Guess what? She is almost unrecognizable today.

Dressed in a costume and wearing makeup, it is still strange to see that the kid-hating face of Miss Trunchbull was played by a very sweet woman. She was dressed as a red-faced ex Olympic brute of a woman and threw a girl over a fence.

However, this is far from what Pam Ferris is in real life and since playing Miss Trunchbull, she also appeared in some other films that might surprise you.

Obviously, she is not that mean in real life, but who can be THAT mean, anyway?

As you can see, everyone has grown up a lot. And the most surprising sight to see was Miss Trunchbull.  She looks pretty happy by rocking a bright costume and jewelry.

She looks like a completely different woman, do you agree?

She’s 68 now and looks sweeter than the characters she played in the past.

She also kept herself busy by offering her voice to a few TV short films and videos last year. Such an inspiration that she continued to do what she loves.
