Share this:

Orlando Bloom has gone for a drastic makeover just in time for autumn. The 39-year-old looked virtually unrecognisable in a recent photo posted on his Instagram page, in which he revealed he has dyed his trademark brown hair into an eye-catching shade of platinum blonde.

Orlando Bloom has dyed his hair platinum blonde

Showing off his sense of humour, Orlando debuted his new hairdo by posing for a photo while riding a bright pink scooter. The British heartthrob looked as dapper as ever, wearing a chic blue suit and white shirt. "Back to blond… rolling to set…" he captioned the photo, prompting fans to speculate that his dramatic new look is in fact for an upcoming role.

Orlando seemed to confirm the theory when he later posted a short video of himself practicing a stunt fight, sending his fans into a frenzy with his impressive toned and muscular physique.

The actor rocked a blonde wig for his role in Lord of the Rings 

It wouldn't be the first time that Orlando has gone blonde for a role. He famously rocked a long platinum blonde wig when he starred as Legolas in the film adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings.


Earlier this month, the Pirates of the Caribbean star delighted his fans when he made his Instagram account public. The change came almost a year after he initially set up his account, with Orlando having only allowed friends and family to view his photos.

He usually rocks brown hair

Within a few hours of having made the update, he had already amassed an impressive 112,000 followers, and the number has been growing ever since.

Fans have been most curious to catch a glimpse of his girlfriend Katy Perry in his photos, but the actor has kept his relationship out of his newsfeed, save for a short clip of himself and the Firework hitmaker cruising along the desert on a Segway as they attended the Burning Man festival.
