Action News 5 Reporter turns into Lion King character 'Scar'

The Lion King roared into Memphis in August at the Orpheum.  The award-winning musical will last until September 16th.

The musical takes lots of talent and hard work to put on every night.  It also takes a lot of make-up.

Lion King make-up artist, Cheryl Thomas got a hold of Action News 5's Nick Paranjape and turned him into the evil character, Scar.

It took 45 minutes to put on three pounds of make-up on Nick.  It only took 10 minutes to get it off.
