#AlexOLoughlin Photoshoots Over The Years –  Jeremy Piper – Sydney Film Festival 2005

In June 2005, nine months after it first premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, the Oyster Farmer was featured at the Sydney Film Festival.

That was just before its cinema release in Australia on 30 June

The Festival ran from 10 to 25 June 2005.

These pictures were taken by Jeremy Piper a photographer from Sydney on 16 June 2005, according to our old sources. We are not sure if they were used in any publications.

    Curious…Is that his natural hair color or was it darkened for a movie or some other project? It looks darker than in later photo shoots.

    • Oh, his hair was definitely dyed and straightened during this time at the festival.
      I am not sure why. There was no project for it that we know of.
      His hair was dyed blonde in January and February of that same year (2005) for the filming of the movie Feed. Maybe that had something to do with it
      Maybe he was just experimenting with different colours after that. 😀
      The next month in July 2005 it was cut for his Bond audition and 2 months later, all shaved off for the filming of the movie The Invisible.

      • I always thought he dyed it dark again after filming Feed. And because of the bleaching and then the colouring the hair got dry and dull…

        • That was my thought as well and was most probably the case even though this was already 3 months after filming Feed.
          He could have just shaved his head to get rid of the blond and grow it out naturally – why go so black with it?

          • Maybe he had some auditions to go to and thought “better go with hair”? 😉 Who knows? And he had to make it so dark to cover the outgrown hairline?
            And he had to dye these awful reddish eyebrows. I see Alex as a guy who doesn’t care that much about his hair and loves to test different styles with it. So he had the colorants for his brows and then thought “Ah, who cares…”

            • LOL
              Yes, that was the time when he moved to Hollywood and went for all the interviews. Maybe that was why he went to so many and did not get in – the hair scared them 😉
              You can see in the Rove Live interview that the hair was bugging him. He was running his fingers through it the whole time.
