James Bond star Pierce Brosnan unrecognisable with long hair after dramatic movie makeover

HOLLYWOOD actor Pierce Brosnan is unrecognisable in his latest movie role thanks to a new head of long brown hair.

The silver fox and James Bond star, 68, has undergone the dramatic makeover for his role in upcoming film The King's Daughter.


His short grey tresses have been replaced with a thick brunette wig that reaches his shoulders, and he has also trimmed off his beard.

Pierce plays King Louis XIV in the flick, which is based on the 1997 novel The Moon And The Sun.

During the action fantasy, Pierce's character can be seen capturing a mermaid's life force in a bid to gain immortality.

Kaya Scodelario plays King Louis' illegitimate daughter Marie-Josèphe, who discovers the creature called Fan Bingbing.

The James Bond and Mamma Mia! star previously told News.com.au: "My Louis is Jim Morrison meets Alexander McQueen meets Tom Ford, in the costume department.

"With a magnificent wig, a great-looking horse and lots of attitude. He certainly was the rock star of his time.

"His is a grand vanity: he wants to live on forever so he can eat, fornicate and go to war… This guy is the king of all kings."

Bizarrely, the movie was originally filmed in Australia in 2014 and called The Moon And The Sun.

It was given a release date in April the following year, but three weeks beforehand it was pulled from Paramount's schedule.

Unconfirmed reports at the time claimed that test audiences took a disliking to the visual effects used to create mermaid Fan.

All went quiet for several years before the movie's name was changed to The King's Daughter.


Last summer, it was confirmed that legendary English actress Julie Andrews would narrate the film.

This was followed by news in October that Gravitas Ventures had acquired distribution rights to the movie.

The King's Daughter is finally set to be released worldwide on January 21, 2022.
