Bryce Dallas Howard had to wear a wig during scenes in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse – after showing up on set with dyed hair.

The actress fears she may have upset producers because she wasn’t sporting her trademark ginger look when she arrived to shoot her role in the sequel.

She tells WENN, “I think I flew out on a Monday or Tuesday to go and do the role. That Friday (before) I had dyed my hair really dark. My natural hair colour is kind of like an orange red, which is what’s depicted in the book.

“When I showed up, they (producers) were like, ‘This is not the girl we hired!’ Shooting had to start pretty quickly, so I wore a wig.”

Howard stepped into the role following the departure of Rachelle Lefevre.
