So if you haven’t heard, The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare is currently in casting mode for their new TV show “Shadowhunters.” As of now, we know that Jace Wayland will be played by Dominic Sherwood, Simon by Alberto Rosende and Isabelle byEmeraude Toubia.
Now let’s cut to the chase shall we?
Dominic Sherwood is gorgeous. I mean look at him. I wouldn’t mind taking a bite out of him. He has gorgeous eyes, exceptional acting ability and damn that blond- wait, what, he has brown hair? But Jace has blonde hair!
They are going to dye his hair, right?
They can’t just not dye his hair!
One of the main differences that have got fans of the series all worked up is the colour of Dom’s hair. Jace has blonde hair and Dominic obviously does not. Now I bet you are all wondering, will Dom dye his hair?
He might not.
I mean, he might, but there is every chance that he may remain his brunette self for the show.
A lot of other actors that play characters from book to TV show (or movie) adaptations have kept their natural hair colour. For example, Nina Dobrev, a brown haired actress, plays Elena Gilbert, a blonde hair book character, in the book to TV show adaptation of Vampire Diaries. Of course, the show got so much hate from the book fans about Nina Dobrev’s hair in the beginning, but she did not yield. The producers of the show said they had to be realistic. Elena is not all about her hair and they had to assume that the show would keep running for a long time, which is understandable. And look! It has been running for a long time and has been successful without Nina having to dye her hair blonde.
So will Dom dye his hair? Maybe or Maybe not.
Does it matter? Well we all know that TV shows tend to be very different from their book counterparts so what is one more difference? I wouldn’t be surprised if he didn’t dye his hair. I wouldn’t be surprised if he did either!
Personally, I think he looks much better being a brunette. I can’t see him being a full out blonde and not looking weird.
What do you all think?
