In the HBO series "Game of Thrones," heartthrob actor Kit Harington sports a bearded look with long curly black hair for his on-screen character Jon Snow. However, the 27-year-old British actor flaunted a different and almost unrecognizable look in a released trailer for his upcoming film titled "Testament of Youth."
The movie trailer showed the "Game of Thrones" star saying goodbye to his Jon Snow look with a new hairstyle and a clean-shaven look as he portrays World War I soldier Roland Leighton in the upcoming romantic film. Additionally, the trailer teased that Kit Hartington's character will be enlisting in the army and leaves behind his love interest named Vera Brittain.
Swedish actress Alicia Vikander of "The Fifth Estate" and "Anna Karenina" films will be portraying Kit Harington's love interest in the film. The brief movie trailer begins with the introduction of a young woman named Vera who tells her parents about her desire of becoming a writer.
The next scene showed an angry Vera throwing her books out of the window when her parents disapproved of her ambition in life. Then, actor Kit Harington appears as Roland Leighton who picked up the books and returned them to the young woman.
The two initially formed a friendship but it eventually turned into a romantic relationship. However, Roland and Vera will be torn apart with Roland's decision to enlist in the army. "How many generations get the chance to be involved in something like this. I can't let others do my duty for me," Roland told Vera about his decision.
With Roland off to war and Vera becoming a nurse on the front lines, the pair will be struggling with being apart from each other. According to a Mail Online report, the upcoming film is based on the best-selling 1933 memoir of Vera Brittain.
Joining Kit Harington and Alicia Vikander in "Testament of Youth" are Dominic West, Emily Watson and Hayley Atwell. The film is scheduled to be released in the UK on Jan. 2, 2015. Have a look at the official trailer below to see "Game of Thrones" actor Kit Harington's different look in "Testament of Youth."
