How do I look like Jon Snow?
His alter-ego knows nothing, but Kit Harington is full of grooming wisdom
IT’S HARD BEING the best-looking guy in all of Westeros. You constantly get called “pretty” by wildlings and men of the Night’s Watch alike when all you want is to be respected as Lord Commander. Such is life for Jon Snow — and Kit Harington, the guy who plays him, can certainly relate. After seven seasons on Game of Thrones, the hirsute star admits he’s uneasy about the inordinate amount of attention the media pays to his iconic mane and smouldering good looks. “It’s an occupational hazard,” he says. “That’s just what happens, and when it does, it can get frustrating. I feel it’s bad practice to always focus on one’s external appearance.”
Which makes Harington’s decision to sign on as the new face of Dolce & Gabbana’s cologne, The One for Men, seem counterintuitive. That is, until you think about it: now, instead of dwelling on his looks, people will focus on his whole aura. Of course, that didn’t stop us from interrogating him about every aspect of his grooming regimen. Have you not seen those glorious locks?
