Actress looks unrecognisable in a throwback picture taken before she embarked on drama school aged 18

An actress looked unrecognisable in a throwback picture shared of herself aged 18 on Monday. 

The star wrote that the picture was taken when she moved into a new property as she prepared to embark in drama school. 

Sitting on a mattress on the floor, it’s fair to say all her efforts paid off as she went on to become a very successful TV star. 

It’s Lucy Davis, 50, who famously starred as Dawn Tinsley in the iconic BBC comedy, The Office.

Captioning the photo, Lucy wrote: ‘Me at 18 just moved into my new London digs to go to drama school.

‘Soooo many good memories in that place. I lived there for 13 years (with slightly more furniture eventually..) #flashback #likeanotherlifetimeago.’

The star has also gone on to appear in The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina as one of the lead’s aunts Hilda Spellman.

She also played Etta Candy in the 2017 Wonder Woman movie, appeared in Ugly Betty and Garfield, and filmed US comedy series Amy from Amarillo.

Lucy is the daughter of comedian Robert Davis, known as Jasper Carrott, and Hazel Jackson.

The actress has previously battled health problems and has diabetes and in 1997 had a kidney transplant, using an organ donated by her mother.

In 2005 she was admitted back to hospital with kidney failure but made a full recovery.

She previously told Diabetes UK: ‘When you are first diagnosed with diabetes it can seem overwhelming and frightening. It could seem easier to bury your head in the sand and hope it will go away. 

‘But I think the most important thing to remember is that must be in control of your diabetes and not the other way around.

Fame: The beautiful actress has had multiple successful acting roles since appearing on the BBC comedy

‘I’ve known people who allow their difficulties in life to define them. They say “Why me?”. But I have to say to myself “Why not me?”. 

‘Many people deal with difficult challenges every day of their lives, and we are lucky that we have medicines and technology available to us that others didn’t many years ago. 

‘One adjustment that I found hard at first was always having to plan ahead – where was I going to be that day? What food would be available? Did I have all the insulin I needed? 

‘Did I have spare glucose tablets with me? But after a very short time, this became second nature, like remembering to take my purse out with me or my keys. 

‘Many things come along in everyone’s lives to test us. What makes us stand out from the crowd is how we deal with them. 

‘Diabetes can be as easy or as difficult as we make it. And by controlling it and keeping ourselves healthy, we can help prevent the side-effects of diabetes later in life.

‘Be vigilant about your health and your medications. Don’t let yourself view it as a chore. Then go out and live your life, and grasp your dreams with both hands.’
