Change is good!
It appears that Kit Harington has joined the new hair for the new year brigade. The Game of Thrones hunk caused quite a stir when he walked the red carpet at the Testament of Youth premiere in London on Monday, Jan. 5, sporting slightly shorter locks.
The British actor, 28, usually keeps his curly hair draped along his shoulders with a bit of natural frizz for his role as Jon Snow on the HBO hit drama. For the 2015 makeover, Harington kept most of the length (phew!), but took a few inches off — and had the cut shaped into a sophisticated, sleek style.
Ironically enough, the star dished to British GQ about not being allowed to cut his hair while on Game of Thrones (seriously, it’s in his contract). “I’m more recognizable in public than much better-known actors,” he explained. “So many people watch, and I go around looking like my character.”
The Pompeii star also spoke on his now-famous solemn look — or what some have characterized as resting sad face. “I’d get people coming up to me in the street and asking if I was okay,” he told the magazine. “But this is my default. I laugh, I make jokes, I just happened to reside in this face.”
