Kit Harington totally bids Game of Thrones a goodbye by trimming his hair

Kit Harington had wrapped filming back in July along with other cast members but had been maintaining his Jon Snow look for any reshoots required during the post-production stage. Kit had initially made plans to totally get rid of the look but later had revealed his plans to grow his hair even longer. Eventually, the actor seems to have shifted to his original plan and after shaving his beard, he also got rid of his iconic Game of Thrones hair. Read on.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau expresses his love for his favourite soccer team, Leeds United

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau expresses his love for Leeds United

Everyone needs saviors. It’s hard to say why but there is some instinct inside all of us that wants someone to come up and save the day for us. For instance, now that Game of Thrones is over, we wish for similar new shows to come and fill up our leisure; or a tidbit about how something from Westeros will return to enchant us again. The hit series actors-turned-celebrities are no different. They too are fans who turn their attention to things that would thrill them inside out. Today, we are talking about the intense lover from the seven kingdoms who would burn cities to the ground to reach his beloved; Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) and his love for the football team of Leeds United.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau expresses his love for Leeds United

In a short clip by BBC Sports taken before the FA cup match between Leeds and Arsenal, Nikolaj briefed his journey of being a Leeds United fan and the trust and belief the fans have in Marcelo Bielsa; the manager/coach of the English Club from Yorkshire. The Danish actor was at a dramatic high and as serious as he would have been in Game of Thrones while explaining his love for Cersei. Sitting in the stands as a fan, he reminisced:

“The things I do for love. Game of Thrones and Leeds have more in common than you’d know. Drama, intrigue, love and loss, a battle for the throne. Fans from the Arctic to the Amazon via Belfast and Buenos Aires. Leeds United coursing through our veins like an all-consuming virus. I grew up in a small town in Denmark, my dad an Arsenal fan. Dad wanted me to be a Gooner too but I had grander plans. Early 90s, come to England, visit Elland Road, and once I’d heard the Leeds fans sing, a seed of love was sown. Though in 30 years, Leeds have had their ups and their many downs. Matteo and Beckford. Points deductions. Third division grounds. A long and winding list of failure, a swordsmith called the Hock.

21 coaches later, look who just rocked up. There’s a new ‘King in the North!’  You can smell it in the air. The ‘best coach in the world’ come to save us from despair. And tonight, the thoughts of ’72 when Leeds last won this cup. Beating Arsenal. ‘Clarke, 1-0!’ Billy Bremner lifts it up. Now whisper it quietly Leeds, but we think Marcelo Bielsa may be the one. The Godfather who coached Leeds to play again, just like they did for Don. Come on Leeds!”

Watch the video to see how he made his fan-love into a lovely dramatic monologue.

In between shots, Nikolaj held a banner as an audience; which read, “Leeds United. In Bielsa We Trust.” This is not the first time he has expressed his faith in Marcelo Bielsa. Just before the final season of Game of Thrones was about to air, he appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and teased the audience into believing that there’s a secret character called Bielsa who would show up and magically transform the world into a paradise. He did quickly reveal though that it was the manager of Leeds United that he was talking about.

It’s strangely beautiful to see our favorite characters be as human and goofy as their fans. The golden Lannister boy was always cheeky, and seeing Nikolaj we can certainly tell how! So, what are your reactions? Talk to us in the comments.
