The 29-year-old Game of Thrones actor debuted the new look after a performance of his West End play Doctor Faustus earlier this week in London.

Kit recently spoke out to say that men face sexism in the entertainment industry and that there is more to him than just his looks.

Kit Harington Says Men Face Sexism: I Think of Myself as More Than a Head of Hair

Kit Harington is opening up about sexism in the industry, and feels like he has been objectified in the past during interviews and photo shoots.

“I think there is a double standard,” the 29-year-old actor told the Sunday Times in a new interview. “If you said to a girl, ‘Do you like being called a babe?’ and she said, ‘No, not really,’ she’d be absolutely right. I like to think of myself as more than a head of hair or a set of looks. It’s demeaning.”

“There’s definitely a sexism in our industry that happens towards women, and there is towards men as well. At some points during photoshoots when I’m asked to strip down, I felt that,” Kit added.
