Kit Harington Doesn't Look Like This Anymore

Kit Harington has stirred up, yet, another heated debate on the Internet, but this time, it has nothing to do with a devastating storyline on his hit HBO series, Game of Thrones. Following a performance of Doctor Fautus Wednesday night (the London stage production that the 29-year-old actor is currently starring in) Harington revealed a rather shocking look when he greeted fans. Accompanying the remnants of stage makeup, Harington displayed a fresh baby face complete without a beard. DEAR GOD, WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?!?!

Though this is clearly not the first time the British star has shaved his facial hair ever in his life (See: his roles in Testament of Youth and 7 Days in Hell), it is a shocking revelation for fans who have been examining every strand of Harington's luscious locks to determine whether or not his infamous character, Jon Snow, will remain on Game of Thrones. Yeah, Jon's alive on the show now, but Jon also has a beard! Does Harington shaving his mean that Jon dies AGAIN?!

Slow down, guys. First, let's just quickly try to rationalize this. Recently, the GoT fan favorite told The Sunday Times that he wanted to move past the insane buzz his curls and whiskers have created, “I like to think of myself as more than a head of hair or a set of looks. It’s demeaning,” said Harington. Still, whatever the reason is, let's hope that it is definitely to recreate a circa-'90s 10 Things I Hate About You Heath Ledger movie poster (don't tell me you don't see the resemblance) or because he has officially extended his Season 7 GoT contract.

Despite our collective shock at Harington's bare face, it is impossible to deny our emotions remain to run high surrounding his grooming habits. So, in an effort to laugh through the pain, here are the best memes and jokes to get you through the real-life horror story of Harington shaving his beard.
