Game of Thrones bosses have banned Kit Harington from cutting his hair.
The Pompeii star reveals he is contractually obligated to keep his hair long and curly for his role as Jon Snow.
He says, “I’m not allowed to cut it and I didn’t realize this until recently. I wanted to cut it, I’ve had long hair for ages and they were like, ‘No, no, no, that won’t be happening.’
“It’s very funny when you get into these things and people get obsessed by little things like hair and appearance. So there’s all these ridiculous conversations that go back and forth between agents and managers… It gets silly, it gets really silly.”
It may sound silly, but these type of contract obligations aren’t that uncommon. After Keri Russell cut all her hair off during the series Felicity, ratings instantly dropped. Since that time, TV bosses have tried to keep iconic characters from abandoning the look that fans have fallen in love with.
