Good golly Miss Holly: Halle Berry played it for laughs when she appeared as the Ellen DeGeneres Show's Christmas mascot
Just who was playing the character was kept a mystery as it regularly rampaged onto the stage for a festive 12 Days of Christmas skit, but its identity will be finally revealed on January 3.
The Catwoman favourite certainly seemed to have found her level as she larked around on the set, much to the amusement of the studio audience.
But it was not as easy as it looked for the 46-year-old to get in character for the jolly role.
For her transformation was revealed in backstage photographs showing her getting ready, with the first step making sure she was well hydrated as she was sure to lose plenty of fluids while dressed in the stifling costume.

Given her success as Holly Berry though, she would surely not would be short of offers from sports franchises if she decided to make a career out of being a costumed mascot.
Halle has been a regular fixture in the news in recent months due to her ongoing custody dispute with former partner Gabriel Aubry, who won a fight to stop her moving to France with their four-year-old daughter Nahla in November.
The acrimony reached a low point when Gabriel was involved in a brawl with her current squeeze Olivier Martinez which resulted in him being hospitalised on the American Thanksgiving holiday.
However a police probe into the incident was dropped after Halle, Olivier and Gabriel's attorneys all agreed to settle the matter to avoid a messy criminal trial.
