Am I imagining this?
Fiona
It seems to me that when Avon gets emotional, his pupils expand dramatically until his eyes look black. Fanfiction often describes him as having 'obsidian eyes' or eyes like coal or similar, when actually they are light brown.
And some fanfiction writers have mentioned the strange dilation of his pupils, so it's not just me....do you guys see this?
Rumours of Death at the end with Anna: Avons eyes look black as night .
It's weird. I hear Charlie Manson could do this, at will...(add on Twilight Zone music...)
 
One Spare Part
I wouldn't like to compare Avon and that other person.

I have seen this too
GARETH THOMAS: Paul is a very generous man, as a human being and as an actor. The programme couldn’t have been made if we hadn’t got on. Our working relationship was magic.

It's all the LSD he's taking... Smile

No, really, I think it's the way the scenes are lit. He has dark brown eyes and then they shade them, or use only cine strobe lights, so that the pupils dilate.

I have to have an eye test every 6 months and they put drops in to make my pupils dilate to that they can see and scan through to the back of the eye. Going into the light later is not fun.

It's almost certainly the lighting not some freaky ability.

My best guess would be the lighting, too.

I don't think it's possible to control dilation of one's pupils, is it?

They used that on me when I had cataract surgery. Between the numbing drops, the dilation drops and the iodine solution they swab your eye with seeing is unpleasant for a few hours, though sharper once the lens settles.

Hope it worked out well for you. Friends tell me it was the whole "the scales dropped from my eyes" thing and reckon their eyesight is better than it ever was.

Having the drops and being in bright light is painful so I don't imagine dilating your pupils is something you'd do for fun.

Sorry, posted without replying..I saw something about Indonesian spear fishermen who can contract their pupils and walk on the sea bed, spearing fish. But it was n a mockumentary, mixing truth and fiction so I do not know.
 
Lurena
If your brain finds something interesting (for example someone you love), the pupils dilate.
It seems that some people can evoke this effect (those Indonesian fishermen).
It could be that Mr. D had trained himself in consciously widening his pupils.
He often took one of his beloved dogs with him to the studio set. Maybe the dog was his trigger?

In the old days movie stars used Belladonna eye drops to dilate their pupils.
They used it for emotional scenes.
Atropine which is in medical use to make eye pupils dilate, is obtained by extraction from the Belladonna (Atropa belladonna) plant.
It's also in medication for cardiac arrhythmias.

( Mr D had very special, beautiful light brown eyes)

It was honestly one of the best things I've ever had done to me. As well as cataracts, I had a degree of astigmatism and I was offered the graduated lenses. I went from bad distance and night vision to having better than 20/15 vision. I now only need to wear 2.5 reading glasses for reading or close work.

I also find it easier to drive because I can actually see better and I'm able to pick up clues so I have a better visual memory of where I'm going.

If your pupils are dilated you probably can't do either.

I have dark blue eyes yet if I wear a lighter blue colour shirt my eyes seem to lighten too.

I wonder also if studio light might also be a factor.

All I know is that when Silver a and I were in the front row at Bournemouth Comicon whilst Mr D was giving a talk right in front of us, every time those brown eyes looked straight at us, we both went weak at the knees! Thank goodness we were sitting down!!!!Grin
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!
