Melisandre was right – the night is dark and full of terrors. But nothing prepared us for the horror of a beardless Kit Harrington.
First Drake shocked the world by shaving his beard off and now Kit has followed suit with the razor.
The 29-year-old Game of Thrones star showed the world his bare faced new look after performing in West End play Doctor Faustus this week, The Daily Mail reported.
It’s safe to say some Harrington fans are pretty gutted about his new hairless look:
I just saw that Kit Harrington shaved his beard and yelled NOOOO' at work.

Kit Harrington has shaved his beard off. This had better not be an indication of his actual fate at the end of this season of GOT, I swear.

It’s a strange part of celebrity culture that we get weirdly attached to star’s hairstyles. But I can’t help but agree with people’s anguish at this new look for Kit.
The world found out about the baby-face make-over after Kit shared a shaved selfie with excited fans outside of his West End show in London:

Doesn’t he know winter is coming? It’s cold up North. Does this mean Jon Snow might be moving South in Westeros? Would the wildlings even follow a ‘beardless-boy’ into battle?
Or maybe he plans on growing the beard back before filming starts on Game of Thrones again?
One beard, so many questions.
That said, some people actually seem especially keen on the new look:

However, flippant beard jokes aside, Kit Harrington himself took to Twitter to remind us that there are much more important things going on in the world:
