View Full Version : Ronon's hair

According to Joe Mallozzi


To those of you asking - yes, Jason did cut his hair. The dreads were becoming a bit of a pain and he asked us if he could go ahead and lose them. Paul and I wanted to accommodate him but were a little concerned given that the first episode of season 5 will pretty much pick up events as we leave them in the final episode of season 4, and we figured the fans might notice the not-so-subtle change in hairstyle....
.....A couple of weeks prior to the start of principal photography for season five, they would be reattached in a procedure that would take approximately four hours, and he would have them back for premiere. Thus, Jason is happy and continuity is maintained. As for the ultimate fate of those dreads - that, among many other things, is up for discussion this week.

So Ronon is probably loosing his dreads, yet more signs that the show is Dooomed!!! :P

Millitary crew cut? That would be cool, and he should probably be influenced by the Marines..;)

While the dreadlocks give Ronan the bad boy look, I'm glad he's going with shorter hair. It'll help him transition from the rouge warrior look to fitting in with the expedition. This reminds me of when DJ got his hair cut towards the end of SG-1 Season 2.

What's the point of keeping him around if he doesn't have his freaky alien warrior dreads? :P

(yes, I'm kidding... mostly ;))

I'll definitely miss the dreads, since they're such a distinctive part of his physical character. However, I'm looking forward to seeing him in a new look. Personally, I'm hoping he just shaves it short and even.

ShadowMaat
October 28th, 2007, 07:31 PM
Does this mean he's going to spend the first few eps careening around Atlantis all off-balance from the sudden weight loss? ;) Will he be experiencing phantom dred syndrome? :eek:

Wow, I think I like him better with the short hair. Maybe not enough to watch, but it'll be a double dose of thunky goodness when I tune in for a Lorne ep. :D

That should make my girlfriend happy. She see's Ronan and thinks he should be on Lost instead.

I however will think it's going to be really weird. In the photo posted above, he looks like even I could take him instead of being this big badass. But as long as he keeps the goatee, everything should be fine.

Well, I think he may have put on more muscle since the pic was taken. I'm assuming it's a pre-dread pic.

SaberBlade
October 28th, 2007, 07:56 PM
It is a pre-dread picture I believe as it's his look from Baywatch. Whoever I bet some of our female fans would be more than happier to compare that image and this one to see if he's added muscle.

The best way for him to get his haircut is for him to get captured and tortured by somebody, and part of the humiliation is to painfully remove his hair and screw him up.

If his new hair is in any way spikey, I could become homicidal. >_>

I'm very sad to hear this. I hope he at least continues to wear them on the show though. And in this picture

His dread locks look way thinner there than they do now. Why is that?

Quote from JM's blog


To those of you asking - yes, Jason did cut his hair. The dreads were becoming a bit of a pain and he asked us if he could go ahead and lose them. Paul and I wanted to accommodate him but were a little concerned given that the first episode of season 5 will pretty much pick up events as we leave them in the final episode of season 4, and we figured the fans might notice the not-so-subtle change in hairstyle. Well, after getting on the phone with Jason’s hair expert (no kidding), we arrived at a solution. Jason could lose the dreads provided he held on to them. A couple of weeks prior to the start of principal photography for season five, they would be reattached in a procedure that would take approximately four hours, and he would have them back for premiere. Thus, Jason is happy and continuity is maintained. As for the ultimate fate of those dreads - that, among many other things, is up for discussion this week.


So its not definite that they will be going for good. I`m sure PTB would rather keep them as they are a rather important part of Ronon's appearance, but if Jason really wants to get rid of them I`ll sure they will facilitate him.
I think if he loses them we`ll get used to it. CJ was a slaphead for 8 years and never failed to look particularly dangerous and imposing when he needed to.

Depends on how they're maintained. They definitely don't have to remain the same thickness.

Also, I'm going to miss the dreads :( I thought they added a lot to Ronon's imposing look.

I am so happy those dreads are going!!!! Oh yes!

It's good to have change in style on the show.

Just like Daniel when he had long hair in Stargate and chopped it off at the start of Season 3 - just looked hot!-

:lol: 100 ways for Ronon to lose his hair! ;)

100. The team gets stranded on a cold planet, run out of firewood and need something to burn.
99. Alien boll weevils ravage his scalp. (my favorite)
98. Ronon decides to change his hair color, but instead, his dreads fall out.
97. The team gets drunk on a planet. When Ronon wakes up, his dreads are gone - and glued to McKay's head (and the scientist promptly gets hysterical, until the alien women hit on him).
96. During an escape, his dreads get caught in a door. He must hack 'em off to survive.
95. One word: LICE!
94. Alas, angry aliens shooting burning arrows at team. One grazes Ronon's head and well, poof!
93. Ronon loses them in a poker game with Carter.

Next! ;)

I think the dreads are the only imposing part of his look. Momoa's not an imposing looking guy, he's just tall...

I always thought it was a little silly that everyone was intimidated by him, and that he could take out a full team of the best US Marines. He doesn't look especially tough to me.

92. He falls down the stair and gone they are. :)
91. It's a cold day on Atlantis - he looks out the window as he gets caught by sharp breeze and "swoosh" they are goners.
90. Angry space squirrels need material for their nest...
89. On a mission his hair gets populated with crazy little intelligent whatevers and to not harm them his hair is donated.
88. Ronan goes to those paint kids with Zelenka again - he falls asleep and history they are.
87. McKay takes revenge on Ronon for sth. by modifying the gate for Ronan to lose his clothes (Rikers academy transporter trick) but accidently he loses all dead tissue - hohoho, what a fun.
86. His hair is used by Colonel O'Neil in a very MacGuyverish way to make some explosives on an important mission.
85. They come close by a black hole so everybody has to lose some weight in order to escape.

84. He gets it stuck in an Atlantis transporter door and it gets beamed to a different part of the city.
83. He gets infect with a medusa virus and they turn to snakes so need to be cut off
82. He turned around so fast, it hit 3 SF's and sent them flying.
81. While still spinning, he takes flight.
80. Caldwell got jealus and cut them off during the night.
79. They need to use his dreads to create a protective shield over the city
78. His hair is made up of the same material as Linnea's power source so they decide to use his hair to power Atlantis.

72. During a team game night, he chooses Dare when he really should have chosen Truth.
71. Becomes a father and decides to go for a little less aggressive look (sorry, I know I shouldn't have gone there).
70. Requires brain surgery and has to have his head shaved.


Honestly, I'm glad we've got a thread discussing Ronan's dreads, since it kindof implies he'll still be alive and on the show next season.

Didn't I read that Jason did ask before he completely did it? To me and this decision, it kind of made sense for him to be want/do it (if he really was uncomfortable it wouldn't be fair for the production to force a actor to keep a hair style because after all it was his life he had to live in that hair!)

Didn't Chris Judge have to write his own episode explaning the circumstances why Teal'c grew his hair out? (Trutonin, from Changeling I think)

That says a lot about he power of 'the production' staff I think.

SaberBlade
November 3rd, 2007, 05:02 AM
I don't think Teal'c ever explained why he grew hair, or the golden worm on his chin. I just remember O'Neill asking with a puzzled look on his face "Teal'c, what's with the hair?" and his chin worm, I am not sure if that Judge's bad idea or not.

So its not definite that they will be going for good.

It would seem odd to cut them off and then spend 4 hours having them re-attached, then taking them off, then having them re-attached. Nothing is impossible though. You would think that if the look were that important and they planned on keeping it for the entire season, that they could accommodate him with a wig and not a 4 hour proceedure.


I don't mind the loss of the dreds but what I'm wondering is if he's keeping his facial hair? Perhaps he'll just stun his enemies into immoblity with the sheer force of his dimples.;)

I'd love so see him clean shaven and with short hair. :)

He may have I may have read it wrong. THough I know he didn't ask in regards to the tattoo.

AFAIK at the top if this thread it says (from Mallozzi's blog) that he did ask, and after consideration, was told that he could cut them, as long as he kept the dreads, at which point they would decide what to do in the season opener, which would be the conclusion to the usual cliff-hanger.

I myself would like to see Ronon without them - apart from the long list of jokey ways he could lose the hair, I think it could make an interesting plot-point: kept prisoner: has hair cut by captors to prevent hidden knives/ the dreads were a Satedan thing, but Sateda's gone, etc etc.

I laughed really loud when I read the mention of Teal'c's 'golden chin-worm' - I too hated that thing and found it difficult to take Season 2 (?) eps seriously because of it.

No, Ronon, don't get the chin-worm! It solves nothing!

I knew about the season opener thing and having to figure out a way to get it in the story just missed the first part.:o

Well as much as I liked the way they did Teal'c in season 8 (Jack: T? What's with the hair?) They need do do a bit more since it's quite different.


I laughed really loud when I read the mention of Teal'c's 'golden chin-worm' - I too hated that thing and found it difficult to take Season 2 (?) eps seriously because of it.

No, Ronon, don't get the chin-worm! It solves nothing!
Ha! I missed that! The chin worm was in season 4 and while I too hated it and while it was only for 9 eps (he shaved it for the 10th which is "Beneath the Surface") the first 9 were some great eps so I just overlook it.

I don't think Teal'c ever explained why he grew hair, or the golden worm on his chin. I just remember O'Neill asking with a puzzled look on his face "Teal'c, what's with the hair?" and his chin worm, I am not sure if that Judge's bad idea or not.

Actually, CJ had the small beard in season 4 after saving Thor. Daniel gave a curious look, but Jack stopped him from commenting. In season 8, after Jack was revived, he asked 'What's with the hair?' and never received an answer.

I say, to account for the new do, that he should somehow be close to an explosion and it burns off a large part of his dreads. With no way of fixing it, he decides to cut them off. Then, have it part of a bonding moment where someone, say Rodney, gets to cut them off. It could also be used as a moment where Ronon sheds his "Hunted Rebellious Warrior" past and finally fully embraces his new home and family. If done right, it could be a really good bonding moment for the team and cast. They could even make the dreads to have some sort of meaning to Ronon, like a "badge of honor" for Satedans, like, perhaps, only the top warrior could have them, or something like that. This way, in cutting them off, he would be symbolically cutting away his past and his horrors. And in having one of the team members doing the cutting, would be really fitting.

Is that a pink razor he's holding? Maybe that should be part of the character transformation. Although it could overshadow the lost dreads.

Where's Ronan gonna keep his spare knives???? ((shudders))

Oh noes! Good point! :S


Not a big deal I'm sure he'll look fine though since I don't look for that. Still I'm sure they are getting frustrated with him making decisions without talking to them first.

As said above, he did ask first. According to JM's blog he asked if he could lose the dreads and, after a conference with Jason and his hair consultant (or some such!) they agreed he could cut them off as long as he kept them and that they could be sewn back on prior to filming on Season 5. From what JM said, Ronon has to have dreads in the first ep of Season 5 because the story will be picking up from right after the events of the Season 4 finale (like with First Strike and Adrift).


It would seem odd to cut them off and then spend 4 hours having them re-attached, then taking them off, then having them re-attached. Nothing is impossible though. You would think that if the look were that important and they planned on keeping it for the entire season, that they could accommodate him with a wig and not a 4 hour proceedure.



AFAIK at the top if this thread it says (from Mallozzi's blog) that he did ask, and after consideration, was told that he could cut them, as long as he kept the dreads, at which point they would decide what to do in the season opener, which would be the conclusion to the usual cliff-hanger.


JM corrected himself and said it wasn't a 4 hour procedure to sew the dreads back on - it would actuall take a few days! From my understanding, it wouldn't be a case of attaching the dreads each day.. they would be sewn on and stay on for as long as needed. If you've ever watched Red Dwarf.. Craig Charles had the dreads (which he hated!) sewn on at the beginning of filming and kept them until filming finished. It would effectively be.. well, not so much a wig.. more like a weave I guess...


Thankfully, my 'bestie' is going to Collectormania (http://www.collectormaniagmex.co.uk/), she can send me photos! So Jealous :(

Dreadless or not, he's still hot! ;) But seriously, Ronon is such a well established character by now, and Jason is doing such a fantastic job portraying him, that the fact the dreads are gone will not make a difference in how I view Ronon. Apparently, the dreads will be reattached for the beginning of season 5 (that's why he's keeping his hair semi-long), and then the hair will be cut shorter. But that's all musings for now.

What to do, what to do...


Spoke to Jason last night about the hair situation. He’s feeling a lot better without the dreads and I’m sure is not looking forward to the two full days he’ll have to spend getting them re-attached for the start of the new season (continuity’s sake and all). Jason is of two minds. On the one hand, he is happy to be free of the heavy dreads that were causing him great discomfort. On the other hand, he is aware that the character of Ronon is distinguished by his unique do. I suggested he consider compromising and trim them, but he didn’t seem too thrilled with the idea. To be honest, I’m not sure if that’s even possible (It’s been years since I’ve had dreads so I can‘t remember. I cut them off shortly after my reggae career came to an ugly end. But that’s a story for another time).

Answer: I don’t think a wig would look anywhere near as good as the real thing. If it came down to a choice between wigging Jason and losing the dreads, I’d rather lose the dreads.

Sue writes: “Do you plan to write that into the script; since we never got Daniels reason for cutting hair hopefully there is reason why dreads are gone from Ronan?”

Answer: I’ve left the ultimate fate of those dreads in Jason’s hand. I have already scripted an appropriate scene should he choose to do away with them.

Yeah, what I ment is to save Ronon suddenly appearing without his dreads in S5, they put something in one of the stories to allow the loss of the dreads to have an SGA reason behind it...

...For example Ronon gets his dreads stuck in some machine that unless the team cut them off it is going to make mincemeat of him...
It doesn't have to be dramatic, just some reason for the character to lose/decide to get rid of his dreads...


No, he's having his dreads re-attached for the first few episodes.

That what I thought they would do, at least until they decide to deal with wether to get rid of the dreads all together or not...

That means he won't be the brutal force for Atlantis anymore. By switching sides He'll problably have something more sustancial to do ,besides the tough guy in Shepp's team, as a great antagonist to Atlantis. He is so lost in The heavy oriented science and tech episodes that he considers to learn some science. ( As he mentioned in SGA S3: Submersion ).
I think the actor sees his character seating idle in many Episodes risking to go in Weir's direction and changes are needed to give him a new dimension. My bet is:
his Satedan past will hunt him down again and a decision to make about his loyalty to Atlantis or his people.It's done before but next time there won't be a turning back. He problably finds a remanant of his people roaming around from planet to planet trying to find a place to settle down and Atlantis would be just what they need,so Ronon will join to the Siege. (It's also been done so in SGA S1: The storm and the eye, but then we'll have Ronons people instead of the Genii).

He's had them taken off again - too heavy! But they have been dispatched to a wig maker so he can either keep continuity for the first few eps until Ronon loses them, or keep them and just wear the wig all season...

I think it's going to be a mayor change in Ronon. I'm skeptical. Ronon was defined by the dreadlocks and now everything is going to change. I don't think I'm ready for that just yet.
But maybe the change is going to be the fresh air the show needs about now. Because it's becoming a little boring. Everybody is so good and they are doing good for the galaxy. We need some bad guys like Michael is. Things are going to be a little more interesting with more bad guys or good guys gone bad.;)

actually the 3rd or 4th episode of season 5 will show ronon cut his hair of in the episode after he is caught by the wraith and they torture him until he is on the brink of death and he ends up having a darker side about him for a few eps after read the season 5 episode guide to find out

From JM's blog - October 28th (http://josephmallozzi.wordpress.com/2007/10/28/october-28-2007/):


To those of you asking - yes, Jason did cut his hair. The dreads were becoming a bit of a pain and he asked us if he could go ahead and lose them. Paul and I wanted to accommodate him but were a little concerned given that the first episode of season 5 will pretty much pick up events as we leave them in the final episode of season 4, and we figured the fans might notice the not-so-subtle change in hairstyle. Well, after getting on the phone with Jason’s hair expert (no kidding), we arrived at a solution. Jason could lose the dreads provided he held on to them. A couple of weeks prior to the start of principal photography for season five, they would be reattached in a procedure that would take approximately four hours, and he would have them back for premiere. Thus, Jason is happy and continuity is maintained.

Hi guys,
Even though Jason Momoa did cut is dreads off, it seems like he is going to wear a wig: the pictures fom Ghost in the Machine (5x05) show a dreadlocked Ronon. So, unless the order of the episode changes, looks like our Satedan will keep his dreads... I guess we'll see soon enough.

He had the option of losing them in Broken Ties, depending on what Jason wanted to do. Joe M knew that maybe the 'cutting of the dreadlocks' scene wasn't going to be used, so maybe he was smart enough to have an alternate scene instead, of one that got extended.

It's settled:


Zona writes: “I just realized that in your shots from ‘Ghost in the Machine’ Ronon still has his signature dreadlocks. Did the plan for them to go in ‘Broken Ties’ change or is it simple a case of things still being shot out of sequence?”

Answer: After much discussion it was decided that while Jason could lose his dreads, the character of Ronon would be keeping his.

I hope however when he dose go, they for once Kill someone off for good! That way it will make it all that more shocking! We have enough old cast members running around Pegasus already (Ford, Weir, Beckett). I say they should do what they did with Fraiser in SG-1, and give it a powerful meaning. Thats IF they kill him off.

So, for shallow reasons, I'm sad about the wig thing. Plus, the wig looks so unnatural -- or, at least, what they did the first three episodes looked weird. (I don't think he's worn the $10,000 wig yet. Maybe it won't be so unnatural-looking.)

Two funny ways to deal with it (had they not made the $10k wig):

1.) Reveal that Ronon had been wearing a wig all along, due to embarrassment over a receding hair line.

2.) Have him wear one of those Rastafarian hats with Dreads hanging from it: http://www.fun-shop.com/show_image.php?im=/img/08/81069.jpg&size=300

The expensive new wig looks great and I probably wouldn't have noticed a different bewteen his real dreadlocks and the expensive wig if I didn't know about them. However, last week's wig looked totally fake and I would have noticed that regardless as something odd. The only inaccuracy is that the dreadlocks on the wig are longer than his actual dreadlocks were and don't have the lighter tips, they're all one color.

When - if - Stargate Extinction gets made, I hope that they lose the dead spider wig. For crying out loud! The dreads aren't what makes Ronon. Jason is.

In the future, it wouldn't be a bad decision to lose the dreds, but it will take some getting used to. Just like how Teal'c started bald, but ended up having hair. Ronon will be Ronon with or without his hair

I know it's interesting that a thread has gone for even this long on the characters' hair alone.
I don't care about his hair.

I wonder if any other hair on his body is in dreadlocks.

Much rather see the dreadlocks!! he looks like the average beachboy with the short hair. Rather have the rough look. And if he should have short hair, at least he should have the beard. Ronon isn't Ronon with the beard.

Looks are a very imortant part of the illusion. People who say looks aren't important, why do you watch SciFi in the first place then :P
