Our Hearts Are Breaking for the Loss of Kit Harington's Facial Hair -- Why, Kit, Why?

Kit Harington, Red Carpet

If there's one thing I've learned, it's to tread lightly when discussing the goings-on of Kit Harington. That said, I've got some sad, sad news for fans of the Game of Thrones hunk. Honestly, you may want to take a seat for this one because it's seriously heartbreaking, but here it goes: During a showing of Kit's London play, Doctor Faustus, fans captured pictures of a beardless Harington. And honestly, we're just completely flabbergasted. 


As hard as it was for us to view, we're past it, and now we're kinda trying to surf through every stage of grief that we currently feel surfacing. It's hard to know if we're not fans of the new look or if it's just a matter of adjusting to the new look. Nonetheless, here we stand -- on the rocks. Take a look for yourself.

Evidently, others are torn over the new look, as well. However, one thing's for sure -- the beard has shaved years off his life, taking him back to the face of a teenage gothy Kit.

Quite frankly, I have to wonder if he's trolling us, as his major shave sesh occurred only days after the news broke about his feeling objectified and being "more than a head of hair or a set of looks."

Whatever the case may be, know that it will be missed by all of us alike. Fans all over will churn in their pain due to this abrupt decision that we just weren't ready for.

And with that said, I'll end with this: Long live the beard.
