Kit Harington’s hair has long been an integral part of his Game of Thrones character, Jon Snow. With the series about to end production for Season 8, Harington’s appearance at one of the many recent wrap parties offered a clue to Jon’s fate — and the tease could mean Jon will be sitting on the Iron Throne when it’s all over.
The Game of Thrones star was spotted at a recent wrap party in Belfast. The party featured several members of the cast and crew, many of whom are presumably done filming. But it was Harington’s hair that stole the party.
Based on the video that was released on social media, it doesn’t look like Harington has gotten a haircut since the end of filming, which is good news for fans that are rooting for Jon to rule Westeros next season.

Harington has not gotten his haircut over the past seven seasons of Game of Thrones, per his contract. The fact that he still hasn’t cut off the locks could mean that his character will last until the very end, though we obviously can’t say for sure.
That said, it is also possible that Kit Harington will decide to keep his hair even after filming has finished, though many expect him to switch it up after all of these years.
Although the cast and crew held a wrap party, filming continues on the set for King’s Landing. Crew members were spotted working on the set a few days after the wrap party, indicating that filming isn’t quite over yet.
It isn’t clear when filming will be finished, but things should be wrapped up within a few weeks at most. Of course, we’ll know for sure whenever we see Harington in public without his staple look.

The final season of Game of Thrones is expected to feature a lot of deaths as the characters finally reach the end of the war with the White Walkers.
According to Metro, Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner recently revealed that the final season will be the most chaotic yet, which is saying a lot for a show that has gained notoriety for killing off characters.
“It’s Game of Thrones, so it’s going to be bloodier and more death and more emotionally torturous than all the years before!” she stated.
Turner did not, unfortunately, say which characters will make it through alive. The final season of Game of Thrones will premiere on HBO in 2019.
