Kit Harington Shaved His Beard And Fans Absolutely Hate It

I'm pretty sure the whole world knows by now that the final season of Game of Thrones is about to air.

In preparation for the big premiere, the cast has been attending a lot of promotional appearances. Most recently, Kit Harrington appeared on SNL looking a bit different.

Jon Snow is a fan favorite on "Game of Thrones".

People have been crushing on Kit Harrington's broody, heroic and bold portrayal of the character for years now.

Over the entire series, Jon's appearance has stayed relatively the same.


I mean sure, he's grown up.

But he's also kept his long hair and beard — which only makes sense.

When is the King of the North going to find time to shave in between fending off the white walkers?

The other night, Kit appeared on "Saturday Night Live" sporting a bit of a different look.

He had shaved his facial hair off, and it caught a lot of viewers by surprise.

He was pretty self-aware about it.

There was a bit where his wife, Rose Leslie, made a comment about growing it back.

For those who didn't know, Rose played Ygritte in the series.

The majority of people did not love this new look.

They felt that he looked creepy, and I mean, it's hard to argue with the truth.

Some people developed trust issues.

It's always weird seeing one of your favorite actors out of character.

But it's not like he was going to show up wearing a fur cloak and wielding a sword.

Besides the lack of facial hair, he did an excellent job during his live skits, so at least the night wasn't a total loss.

Not to mention the unexpected cameos that popped out of nowhere!

Don't worry, it won't be long before the final "Game of Thrones" episode airs, and Kit will be back to his bearded self.
