The girl out of LazyTown looks unrecognisable nowadays

James Dawson

She’s changed her hair for a start.

If I’m honest, I’m a bit too old for LazyTown. I’m aware it existed and I’m aware that – like a lot of children’s TV – it was proper weird, but I couldn’t describe in any real way to you what it was about or what was going on in it.

I remember the intro was utterly bizarre though.

I also remember that the main character was called Stephanie and that she had a pink version of the haircut that girls have if the apex of their personality is going to ‘DIY’ gigs. I mean, looking back at pictures now it was pretty clearly a wig, but I think like a lot of people I just presumed it was her hair at the time.

The role was played by Julianna Rose Mauriello for the show’s first two series. However, in 2011, Mauriello announced she would be leaving LazyTown due to her age and she was replaced with Chloe Lang for season 3 and 4.

But I know what you’re thinking: “What is she up to now?” Well, judging from her social media accounts she has had a complete change of career.

As well as having starred in a number of musicals since leaving the show, the now 26-year-old has also trained as a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy at the University of Columbia.

It’s funny how things pan out, isn’t it?
