‘Finding Joy’ actor Aisling Bea has been reminded of her first paid acting job by a fan.

The ’8 Out of 10 Cats’ comedian was shown an old clip of one of the first jobs of her career, dating back to 2004.

The 14-year-old clip saw Bea’s character wearing the face off her acting counterpart in a bid to steal one euro for McDonald’s spicy wedges. Relatable.

Spot the formerly blonde-haired Bea below! You’d almost miss her…

Bea advised any followers wishing to get their hands on a pack of wedges to “put out and steal from the people you love”… Attagirl!

Bea has shared numerous pictures of her early days in comedy and previously revealed she dyed her hair blonde to stop family members comparing her to her father, who took his own life when the comedian was three years old.

Writing in The Guardian in November of last year, Bea wrote: “For all of my teens and early 20s, I smothered my face in fake tan and bleached my hair blond so that elderly relatives would stop looking at me like I was the ghost of Christmas past whenever I did something funny.”
