Suki Waterhouse is embarking on a major transformation to be a Manson follower.
The English actress and model, is set to star in the forthcoming film “Charlie Says,” which examines the life of cult leader Charles Manson and three young women who were sentenced to death or life in prison after the brutal 1969 murder of seven people.
The victims were actress Sharon Tate, eight months pregnant with her first child with director Roman Polanski.
MANSON’S YOUNGEST FOLLOWER TELLS ALL
The 26-year-old plays Mary Brunner, one of Manson’s original followers and the mother of his third son, Valentine Michael Manson.
Waterhouse told Vogue she ditched the razor to get into the character.
“I am getting my leg hair off,” she told the magazine. “I don’t mind, I’ve done lazy. This is a chance to grow, my chin.”
This is not the only film in the making about the Manson family.
Tate’s younger sister Debra recently lashed out against other film about her sister’s murder, starring former child star Hilary Duff with the title “The Haunting of Sharon Tate.”
Duff, 30, stars as Tate.
Debra told that Wednesday is the film “classes” and “exploitation.”
Had the incredible opportunity of playing Sharon Tate in the last two weeks in an independent film. She was a great woman and it was a true honor
“It doesn’t matter who it is, the act in and it’s just tasteless,” said Debra. “It’s classless how everyone is rushing to release something for the 50th anniversary of this horrific event.”
Tate’s younger sister was 16 when the 26-year-old was killed.
After being convicted for the murders, Manson was sent to California’s Corcoran state prison to serve time for nine life sentences. He died at the age of 83 on Nov. 20, 2017.
Debra said on the day of Manson’s death, she received a phone call from the prison to inform her of the news. “I said a prayer for his soul.”
