Jessica Smith Comes Forward As Sun Baby On ‘Teletubbies’
Back in 2014, Smith finally came forward to reveal she was the iconic Sun Baby on “Teletubbies”.
“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,” she wrote on Facebook at the time.
“When I was about 9 months old, my mum took me for a routine checkup at the local hospital. The midwife there had been contacted by a local production company who were looking for a smiley baby, and the midwife asked if my name, along with all the baby’s (sic) that way, could be submitted,” she continued before adding, “From then I had to go through auditions and short lists until they finally picked one person, ME!”
But how did Smith get that iconic smile and laugh we saw in the show? One simple item… A teddy bear.
“While recording my dad held a teddy bear behind the camera to get me to laugh,” she explained, adding, “and rolled a toy racing car to get me to look down at the camera, it obviously worked.”
