Shannen Doherty posted a photo of herself in her Heathers getup to her Instagram page, giving us a taste of the look her role might bring.


The 46-year-old actress sported a long-haired brunette wig in the picture. In the caption, she explained how grateful she is to be back on set after battling cancer.

“It’s been a rough to years. Fighting cancer,” she began. “As an actor, people bench you. They assume you’re to [sic] weak, not able etc etc. and yet it’s something like work that invigorates and renews strength to conquer the unimaginable beast. I compared myself to a car today. That vintage Shelby that’s been in the garage too long. It’s still a great car. The best. Just needs time for the engine to warm up and it’s good to go. Performing like it’s supposed to.”

“I’m grateful for today,” the post continued. “Grateful for everyday. Thank you @heathers for letting me play and be someone else today. Great crew, great writers, great cast, great show, great director. #paramountnetwork2018.”

This is the second hairstyle the actress has donned in the past week. She posted a photo of herself Monday with a new do. Doherty is growing out her hair after shaving her head during chemotherapy last summer. “After two years of either bald or a crew cut, it’s nice to feel a bit more like a woman again,” she said.

Heathers is a new take on the 1988 black comedy film of the same name that starred Winona RyderChristian Slater, and Doherty. The new TV show version of the same story will be out in 2018, and all the stars will make appearances in the series.
