Danielle Rose Russell is the subject of weight loss surgery among fans on social media lately. Did she shed some pounds? How did she pull it off?
As soon as the latest episode of Legacies season 3 hit our screens, fans noticed a much slimmer physique of Hope Mikaelson actress Danielle Rose Russell, and they started scouring the internet for further information.
As far as the show is concerned, the latest episode, To Whom It May Concern, pushed the story much slower this week, along with some of the most predictable elements of the season. Saving the Salvatore School seems to be the plot of preference for the upcoming run of episodes.
The fresh generation of students must be streaming Legacies on the internet so they could see beyond the little display Lizzie (Jenny Boyd), Alaric (Matthew Davis), and Hope packaged to prevent them from leaving without signing up.
Among these new characters, Cleo (Omono Okojie) appeared to be the most deserving to sign up for the school. On a program like Legacies, many characters fail to receive enough screen time to make their time on the series worthwhile.
Cleo’s way of speaking to Hope channeling her emotions was remarkable. A Mikaelson with so much magic is a blueprint for catastrophe, and Hope was practically bursting magic around potential students.
This isn’t a good look, but when you think of what she’s been through, it makes complete sense. Hope making a friend in Cleo was quite surprising.
Klaus and Hayley‘s daughter has failed to establish genuine bonds, likely driven by the sheer amount of people who have departed from her life, but perhaps this is the beginning of something new for Hope.
She’s trying to move on from Landon (Aria Shahghasemi), and without a time leap of monumental proportions, that was likely to be the case. What was supposed to keep her mind off all the events fuelled her appetite to blow things up, but the faster she gets closure, the better.
Besides the intriguing plot in the show, many fans gathered curiosity surrounding Hope actress Danielle Rose Russell’s physique. Taking a quick glance at her before and after pictures, it looks quite obvious that she has indeed dropped significant pounds.
Based on our understanding, there’s no doubt Danielle’s been following a strict diet plan and/or a rigorous workout schedule.
However, the actress is yet to address her change in physique to the media. Therefore, the means for her weight loss remains a mystery or merely guesswork at this point.
Some section of fans are even speculating a potential bariatric or gastric bypass surgery, but we can neither confirm nor deny it at this point.
Here’s hoping this gorgeous star breaks her silence soon and provides tips and techniques for her fans who are eager to undergo realistic weight loss similar to hers.
