Annaleigh Ashford channeled a pivotal figure who led to the impeachment of Bill Clinton as she filmed American Crime Story: Impeachment on Thursday.  

The actress, 35, was spotted in character as Paula Jones, the former Arkansas state employee who sued the president for sexual harrassment in 1991.

Ashford threw herself into character as she worked a head full of curly hair and fluffy bangs while filming on the Los Angeles set.

Ashford was spotted pushing a stroller forward with a Cabbage Patch Kid doll sitting inside as a crew member followed close behind carrying an umbrella.

The actress looked as if she had stepped straight out of the 80s with her black biker shorts and chunky white socks.

She also wore a grey duck print sweatshirt and gold earrings.

When cameras weren’t rolling, Ashford got back into coronavirus-combatting mode.

Jones’ accusations that the former president sexually harassed her in an Arkansas hotel room while he was governor of the state led to the revelation of his affair with Monica Lewinsky and his impeachment in 1998.

Jones alleged that Clinton had improperly touched her, exposed his penis and asked her for sex.

The harassment was said to have happened in 1991, while Jones was an Arkansas state employee.
