Kit Harington Shaved His Beard and We Have a Theory as to Why

This was no mistake.

Game of ThronesKit Harington took a razor and rid himself of the facial hair that so artfully sprouted around his pie hole. The actor was spotted on Wednesday night (Jun. 1) leaving London’s West End, where he is currently billed in the cast of Doctor Faustus. A fan took a photo of his clean, clean cheeks and the result went viral.

Fan reactions range from depression to horror to straight-up denial.

Some theorize that Jon Snow is dead again while others hypothesize that Rose Leslie is to blame, but did anyone stop to think that maybe—just maybe—Drake ambushed him in the night to reclaim his facial hair throne?
