Kit Harington Plans to Cut His ‘Jon Snow’ Hair Short After ‘Game of Thrones’ Ends – Like, Real Short

”This role was brilliant, but I’ll need to get rid of Jon Snow,“ HBO star says

Kit Harington has had to maintain those long black locks you’ve come to associate with his “Game of Thrones” character Jon Snow since production began in 2011. But now that he’s about to say goodbye to Jon Snow, he wants to say goodbye to that signature look as well.

“I’d like to step away and enjoy the obscurity, cut my hair, make myself less recognizable as the character, and go do and some other things with a completely new look and tone,” Harington said in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, as the HBO series enters in the last weeks of production on the eighth and final season.

Wait, how short are we talking here?

“Short-short,” Harington added. “The beard will be harder to get rid of — I quite like the beard. I like having the long hair and beard both, but it will be like ritualistic thing. I can’t go into my next role looking the same. This role was brilliant, but I’ll need to get rid of Jon Snow.”

Hey, they already tried that once and it didn’t stick. But there is always a chance Jon won’t make it to the end of the final season and even if he does, it looks like Harington is going to make sure his hair doesn’t make it beyond that.

“Game of Thrones” final season will hit HBO in 2019.
