    correction; he definitely has light hair but I don’t think it deserves the title of blond, I mean his eyes are quite a solid brown, too dark to see on a natural blonde, I think the title light brown (brunet) is more fitted to him

    I have doubts this guy is a blond (now), it depends by the pic
    If you condiser him blond, why did you write “brown hair” in Tim Roth profile who actually is blond?
