Who's that boy?

June 3rd, 2011 (08:14 pm)

It is a bit amusing - and sad - that only today I realized that the boy in the top picture is Hephaistion, not the boy sitting next to Alexander in this scene.

I have no idea why I haven't realized that before, since we just saw whem restling a moment before and obviously it was the boy from the top pic who defeated Alexander.

*shakes head at self*

Yup, I actually found that a bit strange too. Obviously, which boy is Hephaistion was made clear in the wrestling scene. However, I think the boy was too blonde to be Hephaistion. And if they already recognized themselves as Achilles and Patroclus, they should be very close. I just think they should be sitting together, though not a must. I have read Mary Renault's Fire from Heaven and the time when they were in Mieza was pretty sweet~

Hephaistion 2

Ah and oh, I so need to read those books by Renault... although I understand there is not that much A/H in them, but still.

I seem to recall they both played Hephaestion.

Lol, I hope not, since those two pictures were shown half a second apart from each other XD

I used to think the blond was Perdicas :)

It was confusing to me when I saw the film for the first time. I wouldn't have thought Hephaistion would have been so blond. However, I do know people that had almost white hair as children and it did grow much darker as they got older.

I think for me it wasn't only the hair, but the fact that this dark-haired boy is sitting next to Alexander, whispering and stuff... It would fit if it was Phai XD
