Sofia Vergara unrecognisable as she transforms into Griselda for Netflix series
Watch the official trailer for Griselda
Sofia Vergara completely transformed from her usually alluring looks as she stripped back the glam in the latest Netflix trailer for Griselda.
The actress who is known for her roles on Modern Family and America’s Got Talent looked very different as she stars as the titular character.
The upcoming limited crime series will follow the life and story of notorious cocaine cartel leader Griselda Blanco.
As a result, Sofia ditched the makeup and voluminous hair to sport a more muted appearance for the no-nonsense Griselda.
Throughout the trailer, the 51-year-old rocked her brown hair but in a more frizzy and curly style, with some strands of grey creeping through.

As well as any barely there makeup, there was also some light natural colour on her lips and dark circles of eye makeup around her eyes alongside slightly unkempt eyebrows.
The series is from the makers of the hit crime series Narcos and Narcos: Mexico, and the trailer teased the reprisal of Colombian drug lord Hélmer Herrera (Alberto Amman).
The clip also shared a glimpse of Sofia as the hardened drug boss as law enforcement discussed how her “deadly” business is “incredibly successful.”
Griselda will also face opposition as a woman in the US drug market as the men already in place see her as a threat, with one man attempting to kill her.
