A college student has revealed she is the baby in the sun on the hit TV show, Teletubbies.
According to Daily Mail, 19-year-old Jess Smith was selected to be the giggling baby in the sun who looks over Teletubbyland when she was nine months old.
Her face became one of the most famous faces in the world, but only her family knew it was her.
Smith is now a first-year dance education college student at Canterbury Church University in England.
Daily Mail reports that Smith revealed her secret during a game with her friends from school. She then confirmed the announcement on Facebook.
“So I’ve recently celebrated my 19th birthday and after a lot of thought, I’ve decided it’s time to tell everyone. 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. I am the sun from Teletubbies. There has been quite a few people pretending to be ‘the sun’ but only I could tell you the real story,” she wrote on Facebook.
Since no one could predict the show would be successful, Smith received very little money for the popular show.
According to Daily Mail, Smith was paid just 250 pounds, which is about $390 in the U.S.
“No one knew how big the show was going to be so we didn’t get offered royalties,” Smith said.
