Kit Harington, hot man of Game of Thrones and soon-to-be Jimmy Choo model, covers GQ this month. In it, the actor discusses the pivotal part as Jon Snow and says that he had never tried long hair and beard before this role. Now, the hair is in his contract. "It does keep you restricted," he said. "I can't go off and play a U.S. Marine."
The secret to getting Harington hair is actually just to be kind of disgusting. "I just don't wash my hair," he says, telling the magazine that when on shoots he goes without shampooing. "I like it to look greasy and medieval," he said, "so it gets very tangled. By the end it's pretty horrible." Still, it cleans up nicely?
