Ladies, brace yourselves. Kit Harington revealed that when “Game of Thrones” is over, he might put down wearing armor and chop off his locks.
“I told my agent, ‘No more swords, no more horses,’” he told Rolling Stone magazine (which features Kit on its newest cover) of his eventual post-“Thrones” plans. “You [don’t want to] get stuck in things. And maybe I can cut my f***ing hair.”
On “Game of Thrones,” Kit plays Jon Snow, who is fighting to protect Castle Black from a Wildling invasion. And the actor told the mag he has a lot in common with his character.
“Snow’s a black sheep,” Kit said. “The thing that drives both of us is more similar than you might think – he’s driven by ambition. I’ve always been ambitious too.
“I’m very ambitious,” the actor added. “But how do I balance that with not f***ing other people up around me?”
Portrayed as the bastard son of Ned Stark (Sean Bean) and an unnamed woman, Kit’s character hit the HBO airwaves in 2011, and quickly became a fan favorite.
“The show started when the economy was very bad,” Kit told the mag. “People were looking for a hero trying to make his way through a dark world that they didn’t understand. That’s Jon Snow.”
“Game of Thrones” continues Sunday at 9 PM ET/PT on HBO.
