Law told British Vogue: “I wanted to do something that felt liberating. The day I shaved my head, I changed my life. I’ve never done anything like that before.

“I looked in the mirror and thought it was going to be emotional but it wasn’t. It felt so positive.”

Law added she hopes to meet Lucas and wants her to watch the show and feel the portrayal is accurate.

She said: “I want to do her justice. A lot of people don’t actually know who she is or much about her. I want that to be rectified.”
