‘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."
