After the “Game of Thrones” season 5 finale, Kit Harington kept denying that he will be back in the next season. But maintaining his Jon Snow look was a strong giveaway that his character is going to survive the alleged “death scene.” But Kit Harington is currently sporting a brand new look, so what does this say about Jon Snow’s fate?
“Game of Thrones” season 5 finale ends on a dramatic cliff-hanger as Jon Snow is stabbed to death in the Night’s Watch, just as he is in George R.R. Martin’s novels. But die-hard fans guessed correctly when “Game of Thrones” season 6 revealed that Jon Snow, is in fact still alive.
Us Magazine reports that Kit Harington flaunted a very different look during his new London play, “Doctor Faustus,” earlier this week. The 26-year-old actor showed off his usual flowing mane in a chic and sleek pulled back bun, but he shockingly got rid of his famous Jon Snow beard,
Kit Harington proudly showed off his baby smooth skin while greeting fans in London following his West End stage performance. Although many adored his new look, it gave fans another reason to speculate that the beloved character might face a second death.

But if you really come to think about it, his beard can easliy and quickly grow back. So just because Kit Harington shaved his beard, it doesn’t mean that it has something to do about Jon Snow’s fate.
Despite all the buzz surrounding his beard-free face and his long curls, Harington recently told The Sunday Times that he wants the world to know he’s more than just his luscious locks.
“I like to think of myself as more than a head of hair or a set of looks. It’s demeaning,” Harington said. “Yes, in some ways you could argue I’ve been employed for a look I have.”
Kit Haringont then added, “At some points during photoshoots when I’m asked to strip down, I felt that [objectification]. If I felt I was being employed just for my looks, I’d stop acting.”
Whether his character is going to be dead again or not, one thing is for sure, fans are already missing his famous Jon Snow facial mane.
