This week Kit were interviewd by Digital Spy, he explains why he ditched his beard and told that he is forever “amazed” with the fascination surrounding his facial hair. Kit also spoke about fans taking pictures of him half-naked on stage during the show and that he doesn’t mind telling “white lies” to fans who want spoilers:
Game of Thrones hero Kit Harington made the news earlier this month for picking up his razor in the morning. Even though he’s done it before since joining the HBO fantasy – remember him in tennis mockumentary 7 Days in Hell?
Kit told us that he is forever “amazed” with the fascination surrounding his facial hair (we didn’t exactly help with that one).
“I’m amazed that it makes [news],” he told Digital Spy. “My publicist sent me some press, and it was in the Independent and the Telegraph!
“These are mainstream publications writing about someone’s beard being shaved! Hair grows back and actors have to change their look all the time. I find it consistently entertaining.”
And why did he actually shave it off?
“I’m doing what’s called a shave test or something. For my next job I have to work out how quickly I can grow a beard. To do that, I have to shave. So I’m not having to take selfies everyday, it’s not fun!”
However, it was at least nice to walk around unnoticed?
“Yeah, that helped, it was quite nice,” he said. “I guess I’m associated with a look, so having shaved there was less being noticed, so that was quite fun.”
