From Lee Thomas to Scar, 'Lion King' villain

- The Lion King on Broadway is an amazing fantasy of puppets and actor seamlessly coming together in one spectacular show.

Jennifer Ivey is the hair and make up supervisor for the Lion King. She is responsible for the 49 cast members getting their game faces on for the show.

On this day, she offered to show us firsthand how the actors get transformed into character -- and did up Lee Thomas as the villain Scar from the show. You can see how Lee's makeup turned out in the video player above.

"I think the mantra of Scar is not evil, it's, 'I desserve everything,'" says Mark Campbell with a smirk. He's Broadway actor who plays Scar in the show.
