If you consider the Jon Snow, a couple of issues inevitably come to thoughts: a brooding stare, a large furry coat, and a curly mop of hair. Sadly the latter trait goes to vanish proper together with the character when Recreation of Thrones ends subsequent 12 months, and Package Harington could not be happier about it.
The 31-year-old actor has performed the Night time’s Watch commander and inheritor to the Iron Throne because the HBO fantasy sequence premiered again in 2011, which suggests he hasn’t been capable of lower his hair for the previous seven years or so. Throughout a current interview with Leisure Weekly, he revealed he cannot wait to ditch the curls for a shorter ‘do, regardless of loving his time within the position.
“I would wish to step away and benefit from the obscurity, lower my hair, make myself much less recognizable because the character, and go do and another issues with a totally new look and tone,” Harington mentioned, noting that he is going “short-short” with the size. “The beard can be tougher to do away with – I fairly just like the beard. I like having the lengthy hair and beard each, however it will likely be like ritualistic factor. I am unable to go into my subsequent position wanting the identical. This position was good, however I am going to have to do away with Jon Snow.”
To be truthful, Harington did get to chop off a tiny little bit of his hair in the course of the break between seasons 5 and 6, which had followers speculating that Jon had really died from the stab wounds he sustains in that complete Night time’s Watch mutiny. Happily he returned and has been kicking ass, taking names, and unknowingly sleeping together with his aunt ever since.
