‘Game of Thrones’ Star Kit Harington Reportedly Checked Into Treatment Facility

The actor is seeking help for "stress and alcohol"

Game of Thrones star Kit Harington, who played Jon Snow on the popular HBO series, has reportedly entered a therapy program to deal with “personal issues”. A New York Post report says the star entered a “luxury rehab for stress and alcohol use.”

The actor has been in a Connecticut health retreat for nearly a month, according to the report, checking in just before the GoT finale aired. 

“Kit has decided to utilise this break in his schedule as an opportunity to spend some time at a wellness retreat to work on some personal issues,” read a statement released by his representative.

According to the Post, “The British actor has been undergoing psychological coaching, practising mindful meditation and cognitive behavioural therapy to combat stress and deal with negative emotions at the facility, which costs over $120,000 a month.”


A “friend” of the actor added that the end of the decade-long show “really hit Kit hard” and his wife, fellow GoT actress Rose Leslie, “is being extremely supportive.”

The actor told Esquire earlier this year that he broke down after shooting his final scenes as the character. “The final day of shooting, I felt fine …Then I went to do my last shots and started hyperventilating a bit. Then they called, ‘Wrap!’ And I just f-cking broke down. It was this onslaught of relief and grief about not being able to do this again.”
