Mimi Keene has transformed into a glamorous Netflix star now appearing on Sex Education.

The ex-EastEnders actress is unrecognisable from her days on the BBC soap playing a brunette Cindy Jnr, the daughter of Cindy Beale and Nick Holland, and the half-sister of Ian Beale's son Peter Beale.

Looking every inch the Hollywood starlet now the young actress has a starring role as Ruby on hit Netflix series Sex Education, Mimi has totally switched up her look.

Famed for her waist-length raven tresses Mimi debuted the bold new look on her birthday in 2020 after celebrating it with a close group of her pals.

She posted a snap of her looking stunning in a corset style patterned dress holding up a glass of wine, with her newly blonde hair flowing over her shoulder.

Mimi wrote referencing the famous What's My Age Again song: "According to blink-182 I have 1 year left until nobody likes me."



Gone are the days of Mimi's brunette hair which was her signature look when she first appeared on EastEnders in 2013, playing the teen Cindy Williams.

Her mother Cindy Beale tried to murder Ian Beale, who has been on the show for three decades, and Cindy Jnr was also one of the suspects in the infamous Who Killed Lucy Beale? plot.

Cindy Jnr made her last appearance in 2015, when Ian sent her away as she learned that it was really his son Bobby Beale who killed his sister Lucy.


After leaving EastEnders, Mimi also appeared on an episode of Casualty, before landing her role on Netflix's Sex Education as school mean girl Ruby.

She played a recurring role in the first series and in the second series ended up taking the virginity of lead character Otis (played by Asa Butterfield) at his house party.

She has posted several snaps of her time at home in self-isolation last year with smiling selfies, and most recently a hint at how she was changing her hair colour.

One picture of the actress from three days previous to her birthday shows stripes of caramel highlights in her hair before the big reveal.

And in another she reclined on a park bench holding one of her beloved dogs at night time, writing: "Never sleep on the full moon."
