Sporting blue contact lenses, a dark wig and prosthetic teeth, Jewel unveiled her remarkable character transformation as June Carter Cash this afternoon as she began filming the Lifetime biopic, Anchored in Love: An Intimate Portrait of June Carter Cash.

Jewel took to Twitter to share the very first image of herself portraying the late music icon, and the 38-year-old singer appears downright unrecognizable, altering her signature smile for the plumb role.
