We’ve seen a few dodgy home haircuts since lock down started but this Game of Thrones star manages to rock his buzzcut AND walk his new pooch!

How’s your barnet looking at this stage in lockdown? Are you crying out for a trip to the barbers or hairdressers or are you, like Game of Thrones actor Kit Harrington, simply sporting a brand-new buzzcut?

The star was spotted out in London this week with a sharp new haircut, easy to pull off for someone who looks like Kit and, more importantly to us animal lovers, what appears to be his new dog!

A star couple + pooch

The star is married to fellow Game of Thrones favourite, Rose Leslie (who played Ygritte), and while we haven’t got any official details of the pair’s adorable new pup, from the pics we've seen we're pretty sure they've got themselves a Whippet.

Whippets are the perfect addition to any household with their gentle nature and intelligent personalities. They also tolerate their own company well so could be a great choice if you’re usually at work during the day – perfect for a pair of busy actors like Kit and Rose.

A pampered pup

We’d hate to speculate but if the adorable padded jacket that the little pooch is wearing is anything to go by, the dog is already a pampered pooch.

We wish the little fledgling family all the very best and Kit, if you want to share more pics of your pooch or your new hair cut, then we’d be very happy to see!
