Kit Harington in Toronto

Posted on May 31, 2013

Happy Sausage Friday, darlings! Would you like a big plate of hair to go with that?


‘Game of Thrones’ star Kit Harington grabs some groceries in Toronto, Canada, where he’s shooting his movie “Pompeii.”


There you go.

Ladies, ladies. Please. Give us a moment to get out of the way.

    HE is gross. But his hair is amazing.

    • 3boysful

      I think I would step out of his way on the sidewalk. Slightly scary.

      • kattyatlaw

        I swear that forehead vein is about to explode. Back away.

      • carlaaxtman

        He’ll eat you up! He loves you so.

    • Lucía Gavello

      You know, he doesn’t look at all dirty to me, but that seems to be the general consensus so I guess the lovely curls blinded me. I mean, there’s no grease, sweat, neckbeard, nails look clean, even his sneakers are shiny!

      • Glammie

        Yeah, I think he’s just scruffy the way young guys are. I’m impressed how much his curls behave the way they do in GoT. That’s some good hair to do some of that romance-cover-hero windswept stuff in real life.

      • formerlyAnon

        I think some people are confusing “dressed in drab faded colors” with “dirty.”

    • GorgeousThings

      All I could think of was the line from “Werewolves of London”
      I saw a werewolf drinking a pina colada at Trader Vic’s
      And his hair was perfect.

      • formerlyAnon

        And this is the perfect comment for this post.

        (And my youthful enthusiasm for Warren Zevon biases my judgement not hardly at all. I swear.)

  • Alex Palombo

    I would watch the hell out of that Pantene commercial.

  • Thank you! It’s so hard to tell whether it’s King Robb or “You Know Nothing” Jon Snow without one of them in a parka.

    • theblondette

      It’s funny – at the start of the show I think they looked more alike, but definitely not now.

      For looks I am totally Team Robb! Jon Snow is a mouthbreather (literally – am not suggesting he’s stupid!) and his slack jaw is kind of offputting XD

      • somebody blonde

        Maybe THAT’S why I can’t stand him. I never could explain to people what it was about him that enraged me, but I think it’s the fact that he goes around slack-jawed all the time.

        • Linlin

          I think its just that he isn’t a very good actor- at least to me. All that being sad & angsty is ok when an actor can sell their inner feelings, but with an actor like him its just boring and annyoing.

          • somebody blonde

            Agreed. I’ve been skipping the Wall parts of the episodes lately just because of this.

          • Carleenml

            I can’t skip those parts because I’m too busy cracking myself up imitating his girlfriend. She always calls him by his full name and she has such a great way of saying it. “Where’d you learn how to do that with your tongue, John Snowwwwww” “we’ll die together, John Snowwwwwwwww” (so then I go around the house saying to my husband “time for you to do the dishes, John Snowwwwwww”)

      • Sobaika

        I’m not partial to either, but if I were forced to choose, I’d go with the one who DOESN’T look like he’s two minutes away from throwing a temper tantrum before storming off to his room and listening to emo and painting his nails black.

        • Perditax

          Maybe Jon Snow has Seasonal Affective Disorder?

          • Sobaika

            He should probably leave the Wall if that’s the case.

          • Tapetum

            SAD would suck massively in a land where winter can last several years.

          • LambeeBaby

            I’d be hurling myself off of that wall.

        • fursa_saida

          Honestly, I feel like that could describe either one of them. They’re both on Tier 2 of my “you bore me, JUST DIE ALREADY” list on GoT (I recognize that that won’t happen, since their storylines are so important). Tier 1 is composed of Stannis, Stannis, Sam, Stannis, Melisandre, and Stannis.

          • Sobaika

            You want SAM to die..?? Does. Not. Compute.

            Let’s talk after tomorrow’s episode.

          • fursa_saida

            Okay, I don’t specifically want him dead (Stannis, though: something gruesome and embarrassing, please), I just mean that I have little interest in watching him anymore and would like him to exit the narrative. With GoT, that generally means death. I do think that the fact that he a) is still a thing and b) has split off and gotten his own storyline means that he’s going to be important later, though; but right now, the same is true of Bran, and I’d be pretty happy if they just gave Bran Sam’s screentime.

            Also, re: last episode (cue deliberately vague anti-spoiler speak): after the, uh, bad scare he and whatsername had when the thing he got at the Fist of the First Men did, it turned out, have an actual purpose, HOW DO YOU JUST LEAVE IT ON THE GROUND AND RUN AWAY? Like, I know the whole point of his character is that he’s near-unbelievably incompetent, but if I hadn’t been watching the episode on a plane I would have been screaming “PICK IT UP! PICK IT UP!!!” at the screen.

          • Sobaika

            Hmmm. Hmmmmmmmm. I have thoughts.

            I like Stannis. I’m in the minority, but he’s actually a capable leader and general (his ‘stay and fight!’ scene from Blackwater comes to mind) and even when he’s a stubborn ass, he was a wry humor that almost sneaks by. Besides, his claim to the throne is actually legitimate. Melisandre should snuff it though.

            As for Sam, I love the guy (spillover from Book!Sam, I wholeheartedly believe they haven’t spent enough time with him on the show to make him interesting or worthwhile) and appreciate he’s the only one who doesn’t treat women like cattle.

            I’ll be come back tomorrow after you’ve hopefully seen tonight’s episode.

          • Sobaika

            So after the most recent episode Robb Stark, has in fact, just died already. Pleased?

          • fursa_saida

            YES. (If anyone else is reading this: ALL THE SPOILERS AHEAD)

            The whole storyline was going on too long with nothing really happening. And there had to be real consequences for what he did to the Freys. I’m sort of bummed Talisa’s dead, because I guess I was hoping she’d turn into more of a real character instead of just Robb Stark’s Dream Woman, but it makes sense. Also, they’re eliminating all the right Starks in terms of who’s interesting and who’s not, whose storyline is going somewhere and whose isn’t. (John Snow is still not my favorite guy–like, if you can’t kill people when you’re supposed to, you’re not going to get far in Westeros, dude–but at least I feel like there’s somewhere more for him to go. Robb was either going to win or lose the war and that’s it, so they were either going to have to have him lose and end it early or drag it out for god knows how long. I prefer this choice.)

            I agree that Sam is better toward women, but really we’ve only seen him interact with one, and I feel like he’s got a biiiiiig ol’ complex about how she’s this tender dove and he’s going to save her and it’s going to prove that he’s not a total fuckup after all and maybe she’ll fall in love with him and they can be a family. And I mean, she totally does/did need saving! And I don’t blame Sam, who’s basically been shat on his entire life, for enjoying feeling like someone looks up to him and respects him and is in awe of his knowledge. What I’m trying to say is that I don’t think it reflects badly on either of them as people because it’s pretty much determined by the circumstances, but I don’t really love this dynamic. In terms of interacting with women like real human beings on an equal footing, I’d actually prefer, of all people, Robb Stark, as well as Ned and Varys.

            Re: Stannis: I get what you mean, but what makes a good person isn’t always what makes a good character, you know? Also, he was already weirdly devoted to Melisandre when he entered the narrative, which strikes me as a super questionable decision. He said himself he didn’t have any actual proof until the shadow assassin baby, so like…was he just really into the flattery?

          • Sobaika

            Full disclosure, I hate Robb Stark. That might be a strong word, more like the general disgust you feel towards a fly buzzing across the room. I share your feeling that he contributed nothing (keep in mind the show actually gave him more plot than the original story) and thought he was just too simple-minded and faux-honorable for his own good. I was practically cheering during the Red Wedding. That’s what you get for being mean to your awesome mom! And on the point of women, I don’t agree with you actually. Robb was shitty to his mom and willing to trade the Kingslayer for his father and sisters, but interestingly enough, not his sisters alone.

          • fursa_saida

            Huh. I’d forgotten about the trade thing. As for his mother, a lot of kids are shitty to their mothers, especially when lots of people around them are telling them they’re a genius. (Though I’ll grant you, usually their moms don’t end up in shackles.) I guess I was thinking mostly about his relationship with Talisa; while she didn’t feel like a fully fleshed-out character to me, I did think that his interest in her was based not just on her being a hottie boom battie but also on her kindness, healing skills, disinterest in the trappings of rank–basically, on her as a person, not just as a Female.

            How badass was Cat’s final act?

          • Sobaika

            Michelle Fairley deserves an Emmy nom. She killed it (erm, pun not intended) in the final scene.

    • kim bunchalastnames

      as long as you all leave jaime to me. i am going to CONGRATULATE him all over his body when he finishes his redemption arc. get the hell away from me, brienne.

  • Diego!

    There is one unbuttoned button…. He looks scared… WTF?

    • FloridaLlamaLover

      I was thinking pissed off! Or perhaps he isn’t feeling 100% and popped out to the corner market to buy a bottle of the hair of the dog.

      • Lucía Gavello

        Milk of the Poppy even.

      • Diego!

        hahaha exactly!

    • misstressofsylar

      the GOT cast is not really used yet to the paps, except for Tyrion. this might explain the facial expression.

  • AzSportsGirl


  • Maggie Wiggin

    Why so angry?

    • Toto Maya

      He ALWAYS looks like that. He always looks like someone murdered his puppy.

  • Annarosa

    I pass on that.

  • It’s hard to believe, there was a time when this guy was totally my type. I still love a good brooding angst, but I prefer it to not smell like last night’s beer and ciggies. I do love those curls though.
    (seriously, he looks so much like the ex prior to current hubs it’s freaking me out)

    • FloridaLlamaLover

      A double thumbs up on the stale ciggy and beer smell. Blech. Nothing can turn you off a guy faster than those two evil smells.

    • frederieke

      I totally misread your comment as “last night’s beer and corgis” and got really happy thinking about Jon Snow getting drunk with a bunch of corgis.

      • Mona_Visa

        I did that once. Never again. Corgis will totally stick there little snouts in your drink if they don’t think you’re looking, and then they get the hiccups.

  • MoHub

    Has his chest been waxed?

  • dashwoodstole

    I tried to think of something witty but all I can think is ‘Daaaaaaaamn!’

  • Silly Grrl


  • Meg0GayGuys6

    The same part of me that was extremely attracted to Ethan Hawke in Reality Bites is extremely attracted to this guy, whoever he is. Now, if Kit was in Hey, That’s Not My Bike, I’d be in trouble 🙂

  • WendyD

    He could be wearing a suit or nothing at all, my eyes won’t go south of that gorgeous head of hair.
    If you have gorgeous dark hair with curls and a pretty face, I’m DONE.

  • FrigidDiva

    Must have been a really stressful trip to the store, he either looks like he’s going to start crying or rip someone’s head off. As far as the hot factor goes, I don’t usually go for guys with longer hair, but on him with the scruff it totally works.

  • TAGinMO

    He looks like he smells.

  • Anyone else think he’s the jock version of Johnny Galecki? No? Just me then 😀

  • Funkykatt

    He looks like he just crawled out of a dumpster with his baggie of goodies, an Oscar The Grouch kind of vibe.

  • Janet B

    Caught walking down the street with a bottle in a smiley bag probably wasn’t on his mind when he went out. Maybe whatever is in that bottle is tasty and puts a smile on his face

    • Nicholas

      His face makes it looks like whatever is in the bag will land him twenty years to life.

    • Two bottles. And what looks like a lime or two. Margaritas?

      • Janet B

        That would put a smile on my face. I think I’ll have one for him this evening!

  • Donna Tabor

    Back in the day he’s the kind of guy I always went for: Tall, dark, curly hair.

    He’s darn cute. Thanks, T-Lo, for the eye candy.

    • mjude


  • NYCGlamourpuss

    Hairy and gross, yet yummy at the same time. I am perplexed by my own horniness…

    • demidaemon

      Aren’t we all?

  • Nicholas

    That belt is so sloppily done, and the weird fit on his trousers makes him look like what Craig Ferguson would call a plum-smuggler.

    Step it up a notch, ya bastard.

  • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

    He really ought to just stay in costume. I don’t care that it’s summer.

  • Why so sad, Jon Snow?

    • FashionShowAtLunch

      It’s because he knows nothing.

  • snarkykitten

    Who is this hobo person?

  • FashionShowAtLunch

    I think this poor guy is definitely a little surprised/disconcerted by the paparazzi attention that comes with new-found stardom. He looks very uncomfortable, albeit completely adorable.

    • TheAmericaness

      Or he looks confused because merely seconds before he was walking down the streets of Portland, OR and bam! he’s in Toronto… with half his beard gone…

  • jilly_d

    A lotta hate for the bastard of Winterfell this morning! What’s wrong, Bitter Kittens? Just as well, more yummy Kit for me.

    • the_archandroid

      they’re all white walkers, i’m digging Lord Snow.

  • Gross. He needs a shower, shave and clean clothes (a happy attitude wouldn’t hurt either)

  • Has he been crying?

  • Heather

    Hmmm. A little too Young Charles Manson for my taste.

  • beebee10

    Delicious dish of sloppy sex.

    Daddies please do something about GOT on your blog. We need you….

  • MilaXX

    Ooh mama Likey!

  • RebeccaKW

    He’s really not doing anything for me. Yes, his hair is pretty, but that’s about all I can muster up for this. If you told me this was a still from a Pearl Jam video from 1994, I would believe you.

  • tereliz

    Mmm, merci!

  • annrr

    I love me some John Snow, but not digging that beard or the wife beater.

  • Nonmercisansfacon

    I wouldn’t mind him sticking me with his pointy end! I don’t get the ‘dirty’ comments. He doesn’t have a neckbeard, the white tee is clean (and still white), the jeans are not stained, the shoes are not scoffed. Except for the belt, he looks like a regular twenty-something guy (with glorious hair) walking on the streets after a trip to the nearest depanneur.

  • Judy_S

    You do nothing for me, Jon Snow.

  • Maryanne525

    Oh my gosh. I’ve hit the point where I’m starting not to recognize celebrities…

    ETA: Okay, I don’t feel so bad now, considering he’s from Game of Thrones. Mama’s too poor for HBO.

  • l_c_ann

    As the last movie location shoot purist left on earth, WTH are they doing shooting a movie called Pompeii in Toronto? What about the feel of the Italian sun on the actors? Etc.

  • Ashley Ellen Wilson

    I can only think in grunts right now.

  • I would not look twice at this man if I passed him on the street.

    • not_Bridget

      Which is far more polite than shoving a camera in his face. Which is what we’re witnessing here…

  • BuffaloBarbara

    I have absolutely no idea who this man is, but um… yum?

  • capybara_cafe

    He’s a pretty, pretty boy, but why does he look like he just smelled a fart?

    • not_Bridget

      Because somebody was taking his picture when he was out shopping. Probably not for stylish items in a stylish neighborhood. No red carpets involved….

  • Mismarker

    He looks like he needs to check for lice, like DAILY.

  • majorbedhead

    That hair. Oooh, that hair. If he’d just smile, it would be perfection. No clue who he is, but I’d love to ruffle that hair a bit…

  • quiltrx

    I’m a sucker for dark, curly hair.
    But the outfit…I don’t know. if this were the early 90s, I’d say he’s pretty grunge-fantastic. But now, he just looks grungy.

  • Denise Alden

    I have a suspicion that without the hair, he’s nothing. (Baseball fans, see Johnny Damon). But a man named Kit is pretty great.

    • Mismarker

      Bible fans, see Samson. : )

      • Denise Alden


    • Kate4queen

      Kit is an old form of Christopher from way back (playwright Christopher Kit Marlowe for example) whom we named our son after, although after we moved to the USA he told everyone he was named after Kit Carson the cowboy LOL

      • Denise Alden

        Thanks! I’d forgotten about Kit Marlowe!

  • conniemd

    While the clothes evoke dirty, the wife beater shirt is spotless and overall the clothes aren’t rumpled. I’d expect to see stains down the front of the shirt and grime on the shirt and jeans. To me he just looks like a college kid out on an errand, not a grungy bum. If I’d walked into a party in my college days he definitely would have caught my eye. Course that was in the 70’s so long hair was en vogue.

  • GorgeousThings

    You know nothing, Jon Snow.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    I don’t know who that is and I don’t wish to know.

  • Richard

    He doesn’t look dirty or gross at all, though he needs to button up is pants.

    He looks so sad, poor guy.

  • Qitkat

    Who dat?
    Mnff, don’t care.

    • MilaXX

      Game of Thrones

  • AshBookworm

    He looks constipated.

  • roche

    I think he looks great. But he didn’t want his photo taken, hence the crabby face. Second photo more natural. He looks 90s grunge, totally ok by me.

    • not_Bridget

      Yeah, it’s hardly fair to judge somebody’s look in a paparazzi photo. I’ll save my opinions for the red carpet…

  • julnyes

    I love his hair. Don’t really care about the rest of him, but the hair is fantastic.

  • sk8tfan

    In my sadly not misspent youth, I would have dreamed of getting on the back of a Harley with this guy, with our hair blowing in the wind as we rode off together

  • Jecca2244

    weird comment, but i think he is one of those guys who is way hotter in role than IRL.

    • Synnamin

      I was just thinking the same thing. “Why is he doing nothing for me, when he’s so hot on TV?”

  • maggiemaybe

    BAM indeed! I heart sausage Friday…

    • formerlyAnon

      You & me both.

  • formerlyAnon

    I think he looks lovely, just caught in a moment when he wasn’t posing for the cameras. In my youth I’d have been eying him in class, or trying to find someone to introduce me at the party so I didn’t have to rely on my awkward mingling skills.

    I miss the days when long hair was in fashion. If only it’d return. Though my male contemporaries are mostly past growing a good-looking mane, I could at least admire the young.

    • demidaemon

      The problem is that most guys don’t know how to properly groom long hair or grow long hair when it doesn’t really suit their facial features. The world is in need of more Tabatha’s to properly guide those of us who are hair-uninformed.

  • stubbornthoughts

    I can’t stop staring at his teasing fly. GODDAMMIT.

  • jmorino08


  • Anniebet

    Aww, he’s all scowly and unkempt and bummed some photog found him. I don’t care. He just picked up a bottle of wine and is gonna get home and clean up and have a nice date with some lucky young thing.

  • That’s a tank top, isn’t it. Pity.

  • Lotus Baby

    i would smell his pillow

  • kimiakay

    Maybe we should tell him it’s Sausage Friday so he’ll smile. Look at us, Kit, no, not them, us! We appreciate you!

  • Aurumgirl

    It’s been about 90 degrees in Toronto for the past couple of days, no wonder he looks a little dirty. Poor boy is overdressed. Flannel is winter wear up here, you know.

  • Bethany Fairbrother

    Too easy! “You Nothing about fashion John Snow’. Yet you still look hot.

  • Puckndc

    maybe a bath would help??

  • Crystal

    He looks upset.

  • Julie Lane

    I think I just found my mental image for the “Hermione goes back to the time of the Marauders and falls for Sirius” fanfics I read.

  • Kimberlini

    He looks like a small, round-faced boy. No sausage or hammbone. No thanks.

  • librarygrrl64

    You’re cute, sonny, but please pull up your pants.
