Kit Harington’s Hair Belongs to ‘Game of Thrones’By: Meaghan Ellis - June 11, 2014
Kit Harington may play a dominant role in HBO’s Game of Thrones, but there’s actually one physical feature about him that’s just as important – his hair.
According to Cover Media, the 27-year-old actor’s hair has a “contract of its own.”
On Tuesday, June 10, Harington appeared on Live With Kelly and Michael where he shared some very interesting details about his distinctive locks.
He revealed that he has no control over the look he has while filming.
“It has its own contract, definitely,” Harrington laughed. “I never thought I’d say that about my own hair… I’m not allowed to cut it, and I didn’t realize this until recently. I wanted to cut it — I’ve had long hair for ages — and they were like, ‘No, no, no. That won’t be happening.’”
He even admitted that if he wanted to personally opt for a new look, he is required to keep things a certain way.
“They don’t like doing that. It’s very funny when you get into these things, and people get very obsessed by little things,” he explained. “There’s all of these ridiculous conversations that go back and forth between agents and managers and HBO: ‘Can we have four inches off or can we have an inch off? What can we do with this? How curly should it be? It’s silly.’”
However, there is an upside to Harington maintaining his strikingly distinctive features. He’s now the face of the notable British fashion house, Jimmy Choo. He went on to express how “excited” he is about working with the famous designer label.
“I was very excited to be chosen as the face for such a highly regarded brand and to play a role in defining who the Jimmy Choo man is,” he said.
The season finale of Game of Thrones airs Sunday, June 15 at 9:00 pm ET only on HBO.
