Fans of Kit Harington's luscious locks can breathe a sigh of relief – the actor who plays Jon Snow on Game of Thrones says he won't (and can't) cut his hair because of the show.
However, he says it's that distinguished coif that keeps him from being able to go incognito when he's out and about.
"I'm more recognizable in public than much better-known actors," he says in the January issue of British GQ, out Thursday. "So many people watch, and I go around looking like my character."

Yes, George R. R. Martin, we know that every man must die. But that doesn't make the deaths on Game of Thrones any less painful to watch. Fortunately, HBO just made sure that many of the fan favorites could stay around for a lot longer.
The principal stars of the hit HBO drama – who include Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) and Kit Harington (Jon Snow) – signed new contracts to keep them around for a potential seventh and final season (and give them massive raises), according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Turns out the most impressive guest at the 2014 Emmys may have been a Brazilian blogger who operates under the name of a character from an classic film. (Several signs point to it being the secret identity of James Cimino, a reporter from São Paulo.)

Jon Snow has a naughty side!
Kit Harington stepped on the Emmys red carpet in Armani, but sounds like he'd prefer to be in the buff.
"I've got an addiction to skinny-dipping. I don't know what it is, maybe I am a nudist at heart," the Game of Thrones actor confessed to Giuliana Rancic.

[YOUTUBE "imW392e6XR0"] Jimmy Kimmel brought back his fantastic Celebrities Read Mean Tweets About Themselves segment Wednesday night, with a shocking twist. This time, a surprising number of the mean Tweets were actually ... good?
Sure, there were the requisite amounts of unfathomable abuse – why does Andy Garcia, of all people, have haters? – and impenetrable obscenities (particularly the ones aimed at Matthew McConaughey). But other Tweets showed a heretofore-unobserved level of wit that made their targets suppress a chuckle. Even David Blaine thought that David Blaine joke was pretty solid!

The gender disparity in cable nudity has become a social-media flashpoint, and few shows on television have received as much criticism on this issue as HBO's Game of Thrones, a fantasy series with enough female nudity to invite the term "King's Landing Strip," but nary any of the displays of swordsmanship its female fans might want to see.
With the controversy large enough to garner its own CollegeHumor parody, the male-nudity question has become the first topic of discussion any time a Game of Thrones actor is interviewed anywhere.
And now star Kit Harington is speaking out, saying it would be fair for the men on the show to disrobe as much as their lady counterparts.
In an interview with GQ, Harington discusses the nudity clause in his contract, which mandates that he bare his flesh every time the script requires it.
