Kit Harington still has long, curly, dark hair and the world doesn't know what to make of it. Yes, spoiler alert, Kit Harington’s hair is still in tact and ‘Game of Thrones’ fans now can’t help but feel optimistic over the fate of Jon Snow.
In a shocking twist during last month's season finale, Harington’s character met a messy end and ever since fans have been trying to look for clues as to wether Jon Snow really is gone for good. The latest glimmer of hope has come after Harington was pictured attending the Wimbledon tennis championships last week, still sporting his Jon Snow haircut.
The actor had previously told The Independent last December that his ‘Game of Thrones’ contract explicitly stated that he must keep his hair long for the duration of the series. "How the f**k did they do that? I screwed myself over there," he told the newspaper. “If you look a certain way or you have a certain look it dominates what people think you are. So I’ll cut it off quite soon. As soon as I’m allowed.”
A month after the interview was published Harington appeared with shorter hair, leading many to fear the end was near for Jon Snow. But now the character is supposedly gone for good you can’t blame fans for hoping for the best when they see the actor’s hair has reverted back to its full Jon Snow-glory.
Of course maybe Harington just wanted to hang on to his locks for a little longer (after all they are pretty luscious) or maybe the actor has just found himself another long-haired character to play now his ‘GOT’ run is up. But either way one thing we’re certain of is, that never before has one man’s decisions at the hairdressers meant so much to so many people.
