Photos of BBC’s Call The Midwife star Judy Parfitt have been unearthed and the actress looks unrecognisable.

The 86-year-old has been a popular face in her role as Sister Monica Joan on the hit drama series since 2012 and was once again on our screens on Sunday night.

The veteran actress’ character is actually in her nineties on the show and recently resurfaced pics from earlier in her career have her looking almost unrecognisable.

The snaps from the ’60s and ’70s show a younger Judy in some of her earlier productions, such as the TV show Public Eye – But The Jones’s Never Get Letters.

The image of a 31-year-old Judy in 1966 showcases her long brown hair and beaming smile.

The next shot was from the following year as she starred alongside legendary actor Jeremy Brett in the drama titled Quite an Ordinary Knife.

The third photo jumps forward a few years to 1971 as she is seen in an action shot with big hair and a floral shirt.

Before appearing on Call The Midwife, Judy had forged a very successful on-screen career.

She also starred in classics such as Murder She Wrote and had a short stint on ITV’s Midsomer Murders in 2008.

While Call The Midwife continues to be a popular series on the BBC, Judy has previously opened up on her belief that the newest series will be the last.

Speaking to Radio Times previously about her role as the kindhearted Sister, she said: “I think it’ll probably end after the next series. I imagine that’s what they’re thinking of doing.

“Mind you, there’s not an awful lot on the BBC compared to what there used to be.

“So, who knows? It’s always the drivers and crew who tell you what’s going on. Actors never know.”

The first episode of the series saw the show return with one of the most emotional episodes to date.

Fans took to social media to admit they were in floods of tears at the opener of the 11th series which is set in 1967.

Viewers took to Twitter to share their love of the references to Eurovision and Sandy Shaw’s Puppet on a string, but the mood quickly changed when a baby’s skeleton was found by Nurse Trixie Franklin, played by Helen George.

Uncovering the remains of a little girl, Trixie was overcome by emotion as she spoke about how small the baby was.

And the heartbreaking scene sent fans into an emotional frenzy on social media.
