We still have a little less than a year until season eight of Game of Thrones airs, but it seems the final episodes are all but in the can, as many of the HBO show’s actors have already begun saying their goodbyes.
One way Kit Harington plans to part ways with his character for the past eight seasons: cutting his luscious Jon Snow locks. (Cue sobbing heard ’round the world.)
The actor told Entertainment Weekly “I’d like to step away and enjoy the obscurity, cut my hair, make myself less recognizable as the character, and go do and some other things with a completely new look and tone.” He continued that the new length will be “short-short,” but “The beard will be harder to get rid of—I quite like the beard.” Us, too, Kit. Us, too.
But if it’s a Game of Thrones–themed wedding like the invites suggest, we think it’s safe to say he’ll still have his signature hair(ington) for the big day (sorry, had to).
