Remember Viktor Krum?!

Well, all you Harry Potter fans might remember the Scandinavian student of Durmstrang Institute the way the film franchise depicted him: super serious expression, close-cropped haircut, and muscly, tattoo-free skin.

But now, about 11 years after Stan Yanevski brought the Goblet Of Fire character to life to duke it out with Harry in the Triwizard Tournament, the actor's Instagram account is gaining steam.

Why? Probably because he couldn't look less like his Wizarding World counterpart!

In fact, the 29-year-old looked practically unrecognizable as his usually full beard was trimmed down to just stubble. This new look probably has something to do with Kit's filming schedule for his latest flick, The Death and Life of John F. Donovan.

Thankfully, Kit has a bit of time to regrow his iconic beard as GOT's season seven premiere has been pushed to later into 2017! Phew.

Still, we feel Harington is itching to change up his Jon Snow character a bit as he recently dished to The Wrap:

Harry Potter Alum Rupert Grint Loses MAJOR Tax Refund Case — But He's Not The Only Celeb To Have Troubles With Uncle Sam!

Sorry, Rupert Grint!

On Tuesday, it was revealed that the Harry Potter star lost his battle for a tax refund of about $1,300,000 (or £1,000,000). Oof!

As you may know, Grint made MILLIONS playing Daniel Radcliffe's sidekick in the hit franchise based off of J.K. Rowling's books. However, it appears the former child star's accountant attempted to shift eight months of the red head's income into the 2009-2010 tax year. Why?

Well, the financial expert was supposedly trying to cut Rupert's tax bill by 10%. While it's believed Grint moved his accounting date from July 31 to April 5 in order to have a 20-month period placed in a lower tax rate, the A-lister never admitted to doing it — so a judge ruled that she couldn't view his changed date as valid.

Unfortunately, Rupert isn't the only celeb to have struggled with taxes in the past. Be sure to ch-ch-check out the FULL list (below)!
