FORMER Waterloo Road actress Brogan Ellis looks unrecognisable following a glam makeover after quitting acting to launch her own aromatherapy inspired business.
The Liverpool-born actress looks worlds away from her character on the BBC school drama more than seven years after leaving to focus on other ventures.
Since leaving the role of feisty aspiring footballer Kacey Barry in 2014, Brogan went on to appear in a short movie titled From the Inside in 2018 before leaving acting behind to launch her own bath bomb and aromatherapy business called Soakism.
Brogan often promotes the business on her Instagram.
Since leaving the show, Brogan also called time on a long term relationship with Benidorm actor Josh Bolt.
The pair are thought to have dated for around three years between 2013 – 2016/17.

Brogan’s Waterloo Road character was introduced as the first character to struggle with their gender identity.
The storyline became one of the show’s most talked about plots and raised awareness for teenagers struggling with gender dysphoria.
Many fans also seem to reckon that Brogan could reprise her role as Kacey Barry in the the forthcoming revival of the BBC drama.
The school-based drama originally aired from 2006-2015 and featured familiar faces including Angela Griffin, Jill Halfpenny, Neil Morrissey and Neil Pearson.
A new series of the award-winning show will be made and set in Greater Manchester.
