Kit Harington is one self-aware man. The Game of Thrones actor, 27, admitted in a new interview with British GQ that he knows he has a serious case of resting sad face. 

The dreamy British actor, who plays the broody Jon Snow on the HBO smash, has become just as known for his sullen expressions as his long brunette locks and impressive acting chops, but insisted that his frown does not reflect his mood.

“I’d get people coming up to me in the street and asking if I was okay,” he explained. “But this is my default. I laugh, I make jokes, I just happen to reside in this face.” 

Harington isn’t the only Hollywood star who suffers from the affliction. Anna Paquin discussed her own “bitchy resting face” during a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live! in June 2013.

“I apparently suffer from a really severe case of bitchy resting face,” the True Blood actress said at the time. “It basically means if you are kind of caught off guard and you’re not smiling, and it means you look really angry all the time, or like you want to kill people, or you’re a giant bitch.”
