From Captain America in "Avengers: Infinity War" to Jaime Lannister in "Game of Thrones" Season 8, it's clear beards are very much in. (Are mustaches out?)

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is currently filming "Game of Thrones" Season 8 for its 2019 premiere on HBO. During a recent talk with ShortList, he answered questions on Jaime's hair transformations through the series, and his current set-up.

Here's that part of the ShortList Q&A:

You're the face – literally – of L'Oréal's new campaign. What's the beard situ at the moment? Long, short, non-existent?

I'm shooting the last season of Thrones. Generally speaking, I'm not crazy-hairy, but I have a full beard. Call me Hairy Styles.

Fans are split on whether they liked your character, Jaime Lannister, with long or short hair. What's your verdict?

He was due a haircut. Especially after spending two seasons dragged through the mud. There was a big change in the character, so a haircut is a way to signal that.

It's true that Jaime has run the hair gamut from Seasons 1-8, including some very rough looks for the handsomest man in the Seven Kingdoms.

Coster-Waldau confirmed that he did not wear a wig, that was all his own hair every time. Based on his new comments -- and the photo at top, of three GoT stars at a Golden Globes after-party in January -- it sounds like Jaime will be much hairier in Season 8 than Season 7.

There are only six episodes ahead in the final season, and Jaime's beard will probably not be the biggest change we can expect. Season 8 will film until June, and we're on standby for some kind of first teaser or official set photo.
