Game Of Thrones: Kit Harington Is Contractually Obligated Not To Cut His Hair

Kit Harington is best known for his role as Jon Snow in Game of Thrones. His most recognizable physical trait is his long, curly, black hair, which is so popular that it practically has a following and a career of its own. Harington explained when he appeared on Live with Kelly and Michael.

“It has its own contract, definitely,” Harington said. “I’m just not allowed to cut it, and I didn’t realize this until recently. I wanted to cut it, you know, I’ve had long hair for ages, and they were like ‘No, no, no, that won’t be happening.’”

Harington explained that the people working on the show don’t like having to recreate hair with cosmetics, and sometimes his agent will end up in discussions with HBO over just how much of a trim he’s allowed to get.

The season finale of Game of Thrones Season 4 airs Sunday, June 15 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.
