From the Wall to Wimbledon, Harington is back on HBO

Kit Harington stole our hearts as Jon Snow in the past five seasons of HBO's Game of Thrones. And although we are unsure of whether or not he will return in the highly anticipated Season 6, we do know that he's not done with HBO — you just may not recognize him.

Harington stars alongside Andy Samberg in 7 Days in Hell, a made-for-TV mockumentary that follows a fake seven-day match between two tennis rivals at Wimbledon. The movie airs on HBO July 11, and when you watch the trailer, you will definitely click the rewind button.

You'll quickly notice that Harington has shaved off his trademark Jon Snow beard and 'stache. But how could we miss this, since the majority of his media photos show him donning facial hair?

The 43-minute movie was shot in Palm Springs, California, last year over the course of just three days — a short enough time for Harington to grow his beard right back to finish filming for Game of Thrones Season 5.

The movie — written by Murray Miller (the producer on HBO's Girls) — will also star Will Forte, Michael Sheen, Serena Williams and Lena Dunham.
