Nicole Kidman, is that you?

Instead of her usual impressively youthful appearance, the 49-year-old Oscar winner looks nearly unrecognizable as she dons a curly grey wig on the set of Australian crime drama Top of the Lake.

Wearing a puffy black jacket and Ugg boots to combat Sydney’s coldest day in 20 years, Kidman was spotted making her way to the hair and makeup truck for a touch-up – it takes a lot of makeup to make Kidman look elderly!

Not much is known about the Aussie star’s supporting role in the acclaimed series. Deadline reports the plot revolves around returning series lead Elisabeth Moss‘ Det. Robin Griffin as she investigates a mysterious, unidentified body that washes ashore on Sydney’s Bondi Beach four years after the events of the first season.

Kidman is reportedly midway through five weeks of filming for the Jane Campion-directed series, her first local TV drama since her starring role in the 1989 small screen classic Bangkok Hilton.

The actress brought daughters Faith and Sunday Rose along with her to Sydney to filming while husband Keith Urban tours North America this summer.

The country singer recently Facetimed Kidman and their children during a concert that fell on their 10th anniversary.

He told fans that Kidman planned to join her husband in Boston for the show, but the filming schedule for Top of the Lake changed at the last minute.

Top of the Lake will air in the U.S. in 2017.
