Kit Harington: GoT owns my hair

Kit Harington wants to cut his hair, but isn't allowed to due to his role on Game of Thrones.

The handsome actor rocks a shaggy do for his role as Jon Snow in hit TV series Game of Thrones. With so much attention surrounding his looks, Kit has revealed he has no control over what is done to his locks.

“It has its own contract, definitely,” he laughed during an appearance on Live With Kelly and Michael. “I never thought I’d say that about my own hair... I’m not allowed to cut it, and I didn’t realise 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.’”

Even if he wanted to mix it up with a new look, Kit admits he is held back by those working high up on the programme. When co-host Kelly Ripa suggested he try out a weave, the 27-year-old star shared how extreme the bosses are.

“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.’”

Kit's chiselled features made him the face of Jimmy Choo earlier this year. He previously spoke out about how thrilled he was to have been offered the job.

"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.
