Llinor shaves her head for Pobol y Cwm role.

POBOL y Cwm star Llinor ap Gwynedd shaved off her hair to em pathise with her character Gwyneth who is currently battling with cancer.

In tonight's episode viewers see Gwyneth ask hairdresser friend Julie to cut her hair short and then beg her to take it all off.

Gwyneth found a lump in her breast in last year's Christmas Day episode and has been undergoing chemotherapy ever since.

Pobol bosses suggested Llinor wore a special skullcap in the show.

But the 30-year-old actress insisted on having her long curly hair shaved off for real to better understand her character's plight.

``Many people, both men and women, see their hair as a very important part of their appearance,'' said Crymych-born Llinor.

``When they told me what was going to happen to Gwyneth, I decided there and then to cut my hair short. ``After all, it's a soap series' duty to maintain credibility and depict things as they are in true life.''

Llinor has also got together a team from Pobol y Cwm to run the Race for Life this June and is busy collecting sponsorship money in aid of Cancer Research UK
