Hannah Waddingham dazzled in a bright orange dress for the premiere of The Garfield Movie in Hollywood on Sunday.

The actress, 49, voices the role of villainous Persian cat Jinx in the new movie that is based on the classic comic strip and honoured the titular orange feline by dressing in his colour at the launch of the film.

The Ted Lasso star struck a confident pose with one hand on her hip in the geometric print  dress and added to her towering frame with a pair of cream stiletto heels.

Hannah styled the look out with a pair of dark square sunglasses and  kept her blonde curls in tight curls that hung around her chin.

The Emmy Award-winning then cosied up with her co-stars on the orange carpet and she and her castmates looked in good spirits in the California sunshine.

Hannah posed for photos with Chris Pratt – who voices the titular orange Persian tabby – and her co-star also opted for sunglasses, but instead of orange went for a brown checkered suit complete with a small orange flower on the lapel.

The pair were then joined by Garfield creator before the fat cat himself made an appearance. 

Hannah and Chris were then pictured with¬†Cecily Strong – who plays an animal control officer in the movie – Harvey Guillen, who provides the voice of Garfield’s best friend Oadie.

As part of the movie, Hannah – who starred in a number of West End musicals like The Wizard of Oz and Into the Woods before finding global fame – gets to revist her singing days with the track I’m Back.

But the song only came part of the way through production when Mark Dindal suggested she do something for the soundtrack and she got to record at the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London 

She told Ashley&Co: ‘When I signed on for the movie, the song wasn’t on the table. Part of the way through the process, Mark, the director, just said to me, we’d love to write an original song for you.¬†

‘When they gave it to me, they just said, you know, do what you want with it‚Ķwe went to Abbey Road Studios, which was incredible, and spent a few hours‚ĶI was all over my voice that day‚Ķevery single note in every single octave, but I think Jinx deserved it.’
