The star, 40, shared a throwback photo of herself on Instagram during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and her ensemble was too much to handle.

Rebel grew up in Australia and has three siblings 

Rebel has lived in Los Angeles for several years but she grew up in Australia with her three brothers and sisters. 

Her parents were professional dog handlers and the family travelled around selling canine products from a caravan. 

Rebel has always been full of character and despite the fact she has a serious stage-acting background, she ended up in comedic roles.

That is all about to change, however, as she recently landed her first non-comedic role in a movie. Rebel’s desire to switch her career course also inspired her to overhaul her health. 

She told The Mirror: "I literally feel as if I have to physically transform because it's very difficult for people to imagine [me in serious roles] for some reason – even though we're in a very imaginative industry.

"I feel that I physically have to show you that I am different and I am transformed in order to help transform my career."

Adding: "I still love comedy, but I did train originally as a dramatic actress which people forget."
