Kit Harington is known for his signature long curly locks as Jon Snow on Game of Thrones, but now the handsome actor has taken shears to his hair, and the internet is kind of freaking out. But is this cut really enough to be worth the anxiety?


Kit debuted his shorter 'do at the UK premiere of his flick Testament of Youth. As you can see in the comparison above, Kit's hair is definitely shorter than we're used to with Jon, but it's not exactly like he did away with the curls all together, which would be a real tragedy in our hearts. This isn't a shaved head, or even a close-crop cut (which you can see on him in Testament of Youth, though it's a wig in the movie). In fact, we think Kit looks awesome with this cut — it's a bit less messy than the style he'd been sporting, while still showing off his great head of hair.

Of course, the internet's main concern was not Kit's looks, but what this change means for Jon's fate. Kit very famously isn't allowed to cut his hair because of Game of Thrones — there aren't exactly a bunch of barbers at The Wall. Some fans are wondering if Kit's new look means Jon is gonzo from the show; if Jon is dead, then obviously Kit would be free to do what he wants with his hair.

That said, we don't think there's much to be worried about. Remember, Game of Thrones Season 5 just finished filming, and Season 6 won't start up again until the summer. We have a feeling Kit's hair will easily grow back to normal Jon length by then, so we're not leaping to any conclusions.

What do you think of Kit's new look? Let us know in the comments below.
