Aragorn's Hair in RotK

I have been looking at pictures of Aragorn lately on the net, and one picture caught my attention. <A HREF="http://lotrpics.123hostnow.com/viggo/aragorn.jpg" TARGET=_blank> Here it is</A>.<BR>It definitely looks from RotK all right (hence the emblem of Gondor on his armour), but what looks strange is Aragorns hair. It looks very light to me. Maybe its a very sunny day <p>[ January 27, 2003: Message edited by: Iargwath ]

I think that it's the way the sun shines on his hair.

I'm sure that the colour is due to the sun, but dont you think that there is alot less of it?

He sure looks different.<P>Remember, this is likely a production shot and probably he will be his normal grubby self in the movie. It will be funny when the clean him up at the end. People might be asking, "who is this guy"?<P>Wonder if he'll shave? <P>H.C.

There is also of course the ROTK image of Aragorn which appears on the official LOTR homepage. I don't know if there's LESS hair, but he does seem to have it pulled back for a new look, establishing him as the king, and perhaps he will get an awesome helmet at some point.

Someone made the comment to me the other day, I wonder if Viggo went without bathing the whole time, because he seems like one of those REALLY dedicated actors who REALLY gets into his roles. <P>On the exteded FotR DVD, I heard that Viggo took Anduril with him where ever he went. If he was in the car, the sword would be in the back seat, and that he even took it into restaurants with him. <P>Dedications seems pretty strong! Let's hope he really did bathe!

Well he was clean in Rivendell, at least, and his hair washed. At least that was one hollywood'ism' that was avoided. <P>Hollywood would have had him gleaming no matter how dirty war and travel would have actually made him
