Meryl, 69, is playing his late character, Perry Wright’s mother, Mary Louise Wright, in the show and so she was adamant she needed to look like him. To do this Meryl came up with the idea of donning some matching pearly whites.

“They were 100 per cent fashioned and inspired by Alex’s teeth,” confirmed the show’s executive producer Gregg Fienberg. “She is his mother after all. It was Meryl’s brilliant idea.”

The sneaky actress also took it upon herself to have the teeth made and didn’t tell cast or crew until she popped them in ahead of filming.
