outnumber Karen’s is completely unrecognizable after shedding her famous blonde hair and leaving showbiz.
Former child star Ramona Marquez made her debut as Karen Brockman in hit BBC A 2007 comedy, at the age of six, and she was already shot to stardom.
Her perfect comic timing has resonated with viewers, and she’s become the show’s most beloved character thanks to her one-liners and critical comments.
Ramona starred on the BBC hit show, which aired until 2017 but returned for two one-off specials, alongside Hugh Dennis as dad Pete, Claire Skinner as Sue’s mother, Tyger Drew-Honey and Daniel Roche play her two older brothers, Jake and Ben.
The sitcom follows the family as they navigate life in London, and won several awards, including Ramona winning two British Comedy Awards for her portrayal of moody Karen.

Six years after the last Outnumbered special aired, the former actress gave up showbiz and enrolled in university to study the language.
Since becoming a household name, the 20-year-old is currently studying for degrees in Spanish and Mandarin at the University of Manchester.
Before retiring from acting, she also played Imogen Pollock in the 2009 TV series Enid, and voiced the character Gwen in the Arthur Christmas carnival cartoon.

She played the young Princess Margaret in the 2010 Oscar-winning film The King’s Speech, and also played one of Celia Imrie’s grandchildren in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.
Earlier this week, she stunned fans when she attended the launch of Boots’ refurbished 17 makeup line, and looked completely different from her iconic character.
Ramona dyed her blonde hair an ombre red, and her rock-inspired outfit was completed with a black waistcoat, low-rise jeans, and an open belly button piercing.
She also revealed a tattoo on her arm, and completed the edgy outfit with chic black heels, as well as a silver necklace and matching earrings.
Fans were thrilled to see her on the red carpet at the premiere and this is only the second time she’s been seen in the past few years, as she likes to stay out of the limelight.
Ramona reunited with former Outnumbered co-stars Daniel and Tyger last year for a lunch date and thrilled fans to see the Brockman siblings all grown up.
