Kit Harington’s hair attracts lot of attention from Game of Thrones fans as it’s a big indicator about his presence on the show. He had revealed in the past that his hair has its own contract. That says a lot about how much importance Game of Thrones creators give to his hair.
So when fans saw Kit with his long hair even after season 5, they speculated that he is still keeping the long hair as he is still a part of the show. While taking to ET about his upcoming movie MI-5, when Kit was asked about his hair, this is what he had to say:
I can chop it off right now.
He also said that he went ahead with MI-5 which is also known as Spooks: The Greater Good as he got to play a 21st century character after his roles in Game of Thrones and Pompeii and he didn’t want to see himself in only one category of roles.
I’d just come off doing Thrones and Pompeii. I think by that point I could feel myself getting a little boxed into one category, so I said, ‘Let’s just do something in the 21st century, please’.
It’s important to notice that Kit Harington is trying his best to show that he no longer is a part of Game of Thrones but we already have seen pictures of his from Game of Thrones season 6 shooting, so it is going to be tough to fool the fans.
