Kit Harington ditches his signature beard in favour of a clean-cut look as he heads out for a stroll in New York
He’s long been known for his raven curls and signature beard.
But Kit Harington appeared to have ditched his famous scruff in favour of a more clean-cut appearance as he headed out for a stroll in New York on Wednesday.
The Game Of Thrones star, 34, cut a casual figure in an olive green t-shirt and light yellow shorts as he enjoyed a walk in the Big Apple.

Instead of his heavy beard, Kit appeared to have trimmed his beard into a much lighter scruff before heading out for his walk.
The actor opted for a laid-back ensemble during his stroll in the city, finishing his look with gold round-framed sunglasses.
Later this year Kit, who recently welcomed a son with his wife Rose Leslie, is set to appear in the latest Marvel movie Eternals, alongside Angelina Jolie, Gemma Chan and Richard Madden.

Last week Kit discussed his role in the film during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and revealed that he had to perform a web search on Dane Whitman when he received the part.
Harington told the show’s host that, when he was initially cast in Eternals, he was simply informed about the character that he would be portraying.
He recalled: ‘I didn’t get sent a script. I just got sent, “This is who you’re playing.” So I was like, “Okay.”‘

The performer then revealed that he had to look the superhero up on the Internet, as he had never heard of the swordsman.
‘I just had to Google the character. This is you know, a hell of a way to kind of work out who you’re playing,’ he noted.
Development on Eternals began in 2018, and its director, Chloe Zhao, was confirmed to be helming the project that September.
Shooting had begun by the summer of 2019, with new cast members being added over the course of production, but the film’s release was pushed back by an entire year due to the Covid pandemic.
