Robert Downey Jr. had to change up his look for the filming of his latest HBO series, The Sympathizer, and fans can barely recognise him.

Photos of the iconic actor were taken on set of the series in which he is spotted wearing a balding redhead wig.

In preparation for the series, Robert was told that he would have to wear a bald cap.

He had no interest in doing this, so he decided to let his children cut his hair in October, and posted the video to Instagram.
