Since 2004, squinty-eyed actress Brooke Vincent has starred as?Coronation Street’s resident lesbian, Sophie Webster. The 20-year old has been broadly praised for her portrayal of Sophie, the first lesbian character in Corrie’s more than 50-year run, even being nominated for Best Dramatic Performance From A Young Actor Or Actress at the 2008 British Soap Awards.
Chipmunky and ordinary-looking,?Brooke Vincent without makeup looks very young and unimpressive.
Without makeup, Brooke’s features disappear. In the photo above, her eyes and lips vanish completely, and she looks like an average, plain jane. She was cute when she was first cast on Coronation Street as an 11-year old, but her looks definitely?don’t warrant soap stardom. (Nor does her acting.)
In the next photo of Brooke without makeup, she’s marching down?a train platform, looking, again,?like a regular, shlubby teenager. Her face looks blotchy, and the darker hair color washes her out.?Rabid Corrie fans may have my head, but there is nothing special about this girl’s appearance.
