Often the answer to the question “Who’s your all-time favourite redhead?”, Lucille Ball has spent decades at the top of the ginger list. And, that’s all while not actually being a natural redhead, if you can believe it.
And yet her hair colour is so intrinsically linked to her unforgettable personality as an actress and comedian through the 1950s, her flash of ginger hair allowing her to be bold and quirky with her roles.
An Amazon Prime film will document Lucille’s rise to fame through the I Love Lucy years, with the starring role claimed by none other than redhead Nicole Kidman (hurrah!). The project has been in the works since 2017, which follows Lucille’s life working alongside her husband Desi Arnaz (played by Javier Bardem).
Being the Ricardos is set for cinema release from 10 December, and on Amazon Prime worldwide from 21 December 2021. Check out the teaser trailer below!
