WATERLOO Road star Holly Kenny has quit fame in favour of dog walking – and looks totally unrecognisable from her telly days.

The actress, who played Sambuca Kelly in the BBC drama from 2009 until her character was killed off two years later, is all grown up.

Holly, 26, kicked off her TV career at 14 as Sambuca, was the third child born to troubled Rose Kelly and a pupil at Waterloo Road.

Named after her on-screen mum's favourite drink, Sambuca passed away from brain cancer on the show whilst she dated antagonist Finn Sharkey.

She rose to fame by playing Kimberley Crabtree in the comedy film Mischief Night, and also starred in BAFTA award-winning film White Girl.

Since then, the child star went on to act in BBC pregnancy drama In The Club, and Channel 4's period drama The Mill in 2014.

But in her adult life, Holly has turned away from acting altogether, and has since started her own dog walking company Puppy Power Hour.

Holly documents her dog walking antics on Instagram, and is frequently spotted posing for selfies with her adorable puppy clients.

The former actress, who still sports her signature blonde locks, is often joined by her boyfriend Ben on her multiple daily walks with the dogs.

Sambuca actress Holly isn't the only Waterloo Road star that has shocked fans with their unrecognisable appearance this week.

Tommy Knight – who played Kevin Skelton in series eight – left fans swooning after showing off his new look.

The 28-year-old star attended London Film and Comic Con last week and greeted excited fans at the annual convention.

In one snap, Tommy sported a beard and a yellow beanie hat as he beamed alongside a fan.

The TV star, who looked stylish in a floral multicoloured shirt, left fans doing a double take.

One wrote: "I don't know how he does it, but Tommy Knight managed to get so much hotter with that beard on."
