Gypsy’s got a beautiful smile today.
In the second episode of The Act, we watch as a devastated Gypsy finally gets a set of prosthetic teeth before her big Child of the Year performance. It’s all the more upsetting when viewers notice that her mother had been hiding Gypsy’s prosthetics for days and only presented them to her then to make herself look heroic in front of the people who were honoring her daughter.
Today, Gypsy, who’s already halfway through her sentence at the Chillicothe Corrections Center, has a beautiful smile, courtesy of an impeccable set of false teeth. She’s almost unrecognizable from the sick version of her we’ve come to know over the course of the past few years.
As for Joey King, the ultra talented 19-year-old actress who brings Gypsy to life in The Act, she needed four sets of prosthetics during filming. “Her teeth changed throughout the stories,” she explained to Variety. “In pictures of her when she was younger, she had pretty buck teeth with some silver caps, and then as time went on, her teeth got kind of rotten, and then there’s two more stages after that where you see her in interviews now. We had those teeth too.”
