Pics: Natalie Gumede gets a classy makeover

Coronation Street's Natalie Gumede, who plays nasty Kirsty Soames, has had a classy makeover for a photoshoot for Now Magazine.
 
"You can't be too concerned about what you look like or letting yourself go," said Gumede of playing violent, upsetting scenes in the soap. Sometimes real life is ugly - to show that, you have to forget your inhibitions. Alan [Halsall, who plays Tyrone] and I have a great relationship - he's funny, cheeky and upbeat, so that keeps us laughing between the tough scenes. It was upsetting for me the first couple of times I had to be violent as Kirsty."

"It was hard to get to that place and come out straightaway, so I stayed at work for a few hours drinking tea, just to come back down. I thought [the public would] hate me but I haven't been bashed over the head with a handbag or anything - yet! But people have shouted, 'Leave Tyrone alone!'"

Read the full feature in Now magazine, out today, Tuesday, September 18th.

whoever took these photos should be fired. They are terrible. (1) they have done her hair so her hair looks bigger than her, and (2) she is propped halfway up a ladder....wtf! who thought this looked sexy or classy?

Awful photos. Her huge hair distracts from everything else....not well done. Shame, she has a pretty face.

I love her dresses but have to agree with the hair comments. In the one photo, I am reminded of Marie Antoinette. Perhaps that was the intention?

She's gorgeous but the hair (or some of it anyway) has got to go...really distracts from her beautiful face.

Fabulous actor too!

In the second photo, it looks like a dead cat fell on her head.
