Legendary Australian soap star is unrecognizable as he lines up to play cricket in Wales – do you know who he is?
Legendary Neighbors actor Mark Little looked completely different from his soap character in a photo shoot for his local cricket team.
The actor, 63, who appeared in the Australian series from 1988 to 1991 and again in 2005 and 2022, now lives in a rural farmhouse in Wales after playing Joe Mangle Down Under on television.
He previously sported a clean-cut look with short hair and a close-shaven beard but looked very different as he posed with his sports team.
Looking completely different with white wavy hair and a bushy beard to match, the star is seen beaming in the photograph.
Mark was dressed in his cricket white and he had a peaked red cap on his head.

It comes after Mark resurfaced on television last month, during which he once again showed off his long hair and beard.
After he appeared on the BBC cricket talk-show View from the Boundary, viewers took to Twitter to express their surprise.
Some have compared Mark’s new look to that of former UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
Others have compared him to the mustachioed British singer Robert Plant.
Although some have claimed that he looks a lot like English TV presenter James May.
Mark made a surprise cameo in an episode of Neighbors late last year.
The Brisbane-born actor currently lives in a remote Welsh farmhouse and was unable to fly to Melbourne to film his cameo on set with the cast.
His character instead joins Harold Bishop (Ian Smith) in a video call scene.

At the time of his return to the franchise it was believed that Neighbors would end after 17 years on the air.
However, the show has since been rebooted by Amazon’s Prime Video.
Mark’s Joe was portrayed as a low-income worker who loved a drink that resonated with audiences in Britain and Australia.
Fans were disappointed in 1991 when Mark decided not to renew his contract so he could pursue other opportunities.
