Cynthia Erivo was spotted on the set of the highly anticipated film Wicked in Surrey, painted from head to toe in green paint.
The 36-year-old actress, who plays the lead character in the film Elphaba, looked unrecognizable as she transformed into the green witch.
She donned a black cape and witch hat and painted her entire body green to resemble her character, the Wicked Witch of the West.
Filming took place over the weekend on Hankley Common, which has become the backdrop for Munchkin Country.
Munchkin Country is the fictional eastern region of the Land of Oz and home to the famous Yellow Brick Road.
Transformation! Cynthia Erivo looked unrecognizable as she transformed into the green witch on the set of the highly anticipated film Wicked in Surrey.
On Set: Filming took place over the weekend on Hankley Common, which has become the backdrop for Munchkin Country.
Cynthia could be seen running through a field of fake corn and grass towards the edge of the cliff in the purpose-built Land of Oz set.
Running to the edge of the cliff, Cynthia performed a song for the two-part adaptation of Gregory Maguire’s 1995 novel.
Later, her stunt double was seen filming a flying scene through the cornfield and she was strapped into a harness, suspended from two support ropes.
At one point, wearing her glasses and a braided wig around her shoulders, Cynthia followed the crew’s instructions before filming a scene.
For the first time, a train was seen on set running parallel to a new blue building.
Filming on the highly anticipated film will continue through August.
Ariana Grande also stars opposite lead Cynthia as Glinda The Good Witch in the Broadway adaptation.
Last month, the couple was first seen together filming scenes on set.
