Careful: there are possible Game of Thrones spoilers in the click-throughs
Send a raven: Jon Snow has got a haircut! Game of Thrones‘ Kit Harington appeared at the London premiere of his new film Testament of Youth with decidedly shorter hair than the free-flowing, shaggy locks he has on the HBO series. Don’t worry, ladies, he’s still dishy.
Although Harington has shorter hair in Testament of Youth, it is in fact a wig, as he signed a contract prohibiting him from cutting his hair. (I wonder is it referred to as the Samson clause). Seeing as shocking deaths of beloved (and not so beloved) characters are Game of Thrones‘ seeming stock in trade, fans are very concerned that the new haircut means the Stark bastard might be meeting an end quite soon. This contract has me wondering if other cast-members have similar restrictions: is Peter Dinklage required to be drunk, bed a whore and use the c-word in very episode? Is Sophie Turner forbidden to smile?
