She’s best known as the trailblazing transgender star of the hit Australian prison series Wentworth. And now it appears that Daniielle Alexis has scored a prized behind-the-scenes gig in Hollywood.

Daniielle, 36, took to her socials over the weekend with a video in which she can be seen working as a makeup artist for famed American rapper Cardi B. In the Instagram post, Danniielle can be seen transforming the thirty-one-year-old hitmaker into a much older woman.

The usually glamorous Cardi B, real name, Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, looked unrecognisable in the snaps.

Her long dark hair had been streaked with grey and styled into a old-fashioned bouffant hairdo.Daniielle also added ‘ageing lines’ to her face and prosthetics to give the star the appearance of varicose veins on her forearms.

‘Grandma Cardi,’ Daniielle explained in the captioned.

The former actress also added a video to the post in which an assistant can be heard to tease Cardi B: ‘Grandma can I bring you your medicine?, to which the rapper replies: ‘Shut up.’ Daniielle, who was born in Bunbury, Western Australia, has been based in Los Angeles since 2021.

In 2018, the actress made headlines after declaring a desire to star in The Bachelorette as the dating show’s first transgender contestant. The usually glamorous Cardi B, real name, Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, looks unrecognisable in the snaps.

‘It would be incredible because I feel like trans people are so misunderstood because people just don’t have the education,’ she explained in an interview with Yahoo Lifestyle at the time. 

In response to common misconceptions about transgender people in relationships, Danii said the aspiration was rooted in a hope to educate the show’s audience. 

‘If someone like me was put in someone’s face they have no choice but to learn,’ she said.

‘I watch these shows like Married At First Sight and The Bachelorette and I just think, it’s just so important that someone like me would be on a show like that as well.’

Danii’s revelation comes almost a year after the actress publicly revealed her transgender status, saying the transition is ‘the best decision’ she’s ever made.

Months later, alongside a throwback Instagram post from her adolescence, the brunette beauty spoke of the ‘rebirth’ she experienced when she finally started presenting as female.

The actress was candid in the post, explaining she was making her story public in order to help others see things from her viewpoint.

‘I hope opening up a little helps you understand me a little more,’ she wrote.

‘I am the same person with the same heart and spirit and organs but Daniielle Alexis is a rebirthed person.’
