The Umbrella Academy star responds to continuity error in season 3

·1 min read

Justin H Min just addressed a continuity error for character Ben Hargreeves between The Umbrella Academy seasons two and three. Did you spot it?

Fans of the Netflix original will know season three kicked off with the same scene that featured at the end of season two's finale. Only, er, not everything in the scene was the same, as Ben's hairstyle is actually completely different.

Instead of the long hair swept over to one side that he was sporting in seasons one and two, the Hargreeves sibling now has spiky hair; a change that even the most eagle-eyed viewer might not have spotted.

Now, the actor has touched on the change in an interview with TV Line, revealing he was overjoyed to embrace the new 'do. "You know, they talk about the happiest day in your life," he joked. "The bangs had a great run, but they had to go. They kept falling out.

"It was going to be a nightmare to film with that, so the hair went up, and we called it a day."

Wait, the long floppy side sweep wasn't real? The more you know.

On the hairstyle, creator Steve Blackman added, "We shot that [original] scene on the very last day of season 2, and I did not want them to do that to his hair. It's supposed to be continuous [into season 3], but... I wanted to change it. So did Justin, so we did a little flip of that."
