Tom Holland was spotted sporting a very different haircut just as the preview night of his West End play was cancelled last minute.

The Spider-Man actor, 27, was due to perform the first preview night of Romeo & Juliet at the Duke of York Theatre on Saturday May 11, but just a day before kick-off fans were told the performance was not happening.

After thousands scrambled to bag tickets earlier this year, they were left disappointed when it was announced the play – starring Tom as Romeo and Francesca Amewudah-Rivers as Juliet – ‘cannot go ahead as planned’.

According to Deadline, the reason it was pulled was ‘due to the technical aspects of the production needing further preparation’.

It’s not clear if preview performances on Monday and Tuesday will go ahead as planned, with the official opening night set for May 23.

Tom was spotted leaving the theatre on Friday wearing a brown buttoned T-shirt and with a very short haircut.

Perhaps it’s a new look for the stage play, or maybe it’s just Tom, but fans have taken to social media in shock at the disappearance of his usual bouncy locks.

‘Why would Tom Holland cut his hair like that?’ asked @brycevglover while @luvsomebodyelse wrote: ‘Tom Holland’s hair I’m mourning.’

This comes after Tom suffered a nasty injury on St Andrew’s iconic golf course when a ball hit him in the head.

He missed the Met Gala – which his partner Zendaya, 27, attended in style and co-chaired – and documented his evening instead by showing fans his red golf ball-sized mark on his forehead.

‘Who ever said golf isn’t a contact sport is full of s**t. You can almost see the dimples,’ he wrote on a picture shared on Instagram of the mark.

He then linked to his father Dominic Holland’s Patreon site, where the doting dad shared an amusing story about the series of events which led the ball to Tom’s head.

Dominic shared that a gold ball did indeed hit his son’s head, but it was not a serious injury.

‘In fact, it was hit by a sand wedge from 80 yards albeit by a scratch golfer who should have known better and frankly been more accurate,’ he wrote, according to Mail Online.

‘The offending player was Alex Roberts, a close friend of Tom’s… without knowing that his most important and highly valuable friend was off the green to his left.’

‘[Tom was] lucky then to be playing in Scotland (the home of golf) in April when woolly hats are mandatory for survival,’ his dad joked.

He was then ‘dispatched to hospital for some checks.’

Meanwhile Zendaya rocked the red carpet in two separate gowns, as Tom fawned over her at home sharing photos of her on social media looking radiant at the star-studded event.

Tom and Zendaya – who live together in London – finally confirmed dating rumours in 2021 which were first sparked when they shared the screen in 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, where they forged a very close friendship.

In a chat with Extra, Tom previously revealed they often reflect over their Spider-Man days together where their relationship blossomed.

‘Zendaya and I will, every now and then, watch Spider-Man 1 and reminisce about being 19 and making those movies again,’ he said.

‘I love those movies, and I love savouring those moments, so I try not to watch them as often as I would maybe like to because it’s so special.

‘It’s such a luxury, such a gift to be able to sit down and sort of relive your youth.’
