LONDON, Dec. 23 (UPI) -- Jess Smith, 19, revealed she was the 9-month-old baby who played the sun in the British television series The Teletubbies.
When she started her first week at Canterbury Christ Church University and was told to say something about herself, no one could guess. She decided that was the perfect time to reveal her role on the show.
"I thought I may as well tell them as I'm going to be spending the next three years with them," she said.
"So I've recently celebrated my 19th birthday and after a lot of thought, I've decided it's time to tell everyone," Smith wrote on Facebook. "I used to hide it but after a lot of encouragement from my friends at university, I've gained the confidence to come out with it.
She was selected to overlook Tinky-Winky, Dipsy, Laa Laa and Po as the baby-faced sun.
