12 Screen Adaptation Characters Who Are Significantly Different From The Original

Screen adaptations of literary works are becoming increasingly popular. However, in an effort to express their vision of a great creation, filmmakers often change the plot lines of novels and stories and sometimes make significant changes to the appearance of the main characters.

Frodo Baggins

According to Gandalf, in The Lord of the Rings book, Frodo is a stout rosy-cheeked hobbit, taller than the rest, with blond hair, a cleft chin, and clear eyes.

Natasha Rostova

On the pages of the novel War and Peace, the main character is described as a black-eyed lady with a big mouth and black curls.

Count Vronsky

The blond Vronsky from Hollywood’s film adaptation of Anna Karenina is a heavily built, short-cut brunet on the pages of the novel.

Dorian Gray

Forever young and handsome Dorian Gray has an angelic appearance in the book: dark golden hair, blue eyes, and red lips.

Randle Patrick McMurphy

In the novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, McMurphy has long red tufts and disheveled, long, uncut curls. He has a scar across his nose and cheek.


We don’t know a lot about the appearance of the main character of Wuthering Heights. He has dark skin and a strong resemblance to a gypsy, reminiscent of “a little Lascar, or an American or Spanish castaway.”

Jane Eyre

Jane was the owner of chestnut hair and green eyes. She was extremely pale and resembled a little elf.

Ellis Boyd “Red” Redding

In the novel Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption, Red was an Irishman. Red hair, fair skin, and, perhaps, freckles and blue eyes.

Harry Potter

Throughout all the books it’s mentioned that Harry inherited beautiful green eyes from his mother.

Dolores Umbridge

One of Harry Potter’s main enemies, Professor Umbridge, resembled a large pale toad in the book. She always wore a small black bow on her head that looked like a fly. She had a wide and flabby face, a short neck, large, round, and slightly bulging eyes, a huge mouth, and curly short-cut hair.

Sherlock Holmes

In Arthur Conan Doyle’s books, Sherlock has a thin aquiline nose and a square, slightly protruding chin.


After reading The Master and Margarita, the audience expected to see a completely different image of Woland: a smooth-haired brunet of about forty years old with a crooked mouth, his right eye black and the left one green. Both eyebrows are black, but one of them is higher.

This Elderly Couple Bought Their Household Appliances In 1950s, 50 Years Later They Still Work!

David Hedges/SWNS

Sydney and Rachel Saunders from Exeter, UK, an elderly couple, both in their 80s, have been using the same home appliances that they bought over half a century ago! Their tumble dryer, boiler, cooker, and washing machine cost them just £146 GBP ($193 USD) when they first purchased them way back in 1956, and somewhat incredibly, they continue to work to this day.

“Things were made better in those days, they were more durable and stronger,” said Mr Saunders, a retired accountant. “We were given the washing machine when we were married – 62 years ago – and the last time it was used was 12 years ago,” added his wife Rachel, a retired carer. “As far as I know it’s still in full working order, it just leaks a bit. You just don’t get appliances made like that today.”

The couple have finally decided to part with their antique appliances after all these years, but Mr Saunders isn’t bothered about how much they might get for selling them.

“I’d like them to go to a museum or something like that so they can be preserved,” he said.

Molten Glass Is Hand Blown Into These Wood Pieces To Make Contemporary Sculptures

Scott Slagerman has always been captivated by glass – how it is transformed from a fragile, yet unyielding solid state to molten fluidity and back again; and how this mutable substance, though a process that is both delicate and dangerous, can create objects both essential and esoteric. He is fascinated by the role that glass plays in architecture, as well as in the everyday objects that we find around us.

To create each piece in the collection, the design is drawn on to the wood and then cut out using traditional woodworking techniques. Then, molten glass is blown directly into the cut-out shape and in to the wood. By blowing the glass directly into the wood cut-outs, it allows the glass to perfectly fit and they look as if they were naturally formed together.
