Kit Harington talks about wearing a wig for this film

“It was one of the things I worried most about coming into it,” explains Kit Harington of the decision to don a wig for his latest film role in Testament of Youth. “You can do whatever film you like but if everyone’s just concentrating on your hair there’s no point. It was important for me to do a character that didn’t look like me and to show people that I can look different. It was liberating.”

The 27-year-old actor has got used to talking about his hair. When the first trailer for Testament of Youth was released earlier this year, the internet exploded with headlines such as “Did the BBC make Jon Snow wear a wig?” and it’s been widely reported that his Game of Thrones contract stipulates that he cannot cut his hair. So does that mean he’s constantly recognised?

“I’ve got a disguise,” he says smiling, producing a hair bobble. “I tie it up.”

The young British actor’s career has skyrocketed since his graduation from Central School of Speech and Drama six years ago, with his role as Jon Snow on HBO’s hit show (his first professional gig) making him a household name. Diverse roles in Pompeii, How To Train Your Dragon 2 and the upcoming Spooks have followed, but it is his latest part as Vera Brittain’s fiancé Roland Leighton in the film based on her wartime memoir, Testament of Youth, that sees him at his most unrecognisable – not least because of his lack of hair.

“My character Roland couldn’t be more different to Jon. Jon’s a very introverted, dark character, whereas Roland is an intellectual and an academic,” he explains. “It was nice playing someone a little lighter. A lot of my scenes were the sun-dappled, halcyon memories of their youth, running through fields and falling in love. I had a great time!”
