'Game of Thrones' Actor Kit Harington Hates Wigs and Beards


Game of Thrones fans will be happy to know there's a big interview with Kit Harington, the 25-year-old Brit whose emo warrior character Jon Snow is becoming a pivotal player in this season of the series, at The Daily Beast. There's much to be said there about the show, but given the shot above, from a Men's Journal fashion spread featuring the bushy-maned, scruffy-faced Harington, one of his big dislikes may surprise you:

"I hate wigs. I absolutely hate wigs. I’m a bit like Peter Dinklage. Peter Dinklage said to David and Dan when he was offered the part—they were desperately trying to get him in—'I’ll do it as long as I don’t have to wear a wig or a beard. Put me in a wig or a beard, I’m not doing it.' That’s how I feel. I’m not doing it. I hate wigs. I hate them."

  2. His lips drive me crazy.

    I am surprised to learn Peter Dinklage is not wearing a wig in GoT. Whenever he is on screen, I can't take my eyes off all that hair.

  3. Have you watched the latest episode, Dastius? Tyrion's quips about Shae's "fish pie" were the best ones yet!

  5. Endo, I live in Mexico and saw the new GoT episode, but it was in Spanish, so a lot of it escaped me. I'll watch again and look for the "pay de pescado" quips.

  6. Oh Kit, would it kill to smile?

    PS: love the show and the books. Really is the best show on television atm. So many fresh actors that will hopefully grow their careers from this.

  8. Jon and Daenerys Targaryen are my favorite two characters from the show. I am sooo disappointed that he smokes, what the heck is up with that?

    "Jon and Daenerys Targaryen..."

    Hmmm don't want to spoil anything for ya if you aren't BUT are you hinting at a huge theory many readers have from reading the books?
