Kit Harington is famously known as Jon Snow. Recently, a rep of the 32-year-old British actor told an international magazine in a statement:
“Kit has decided to utilize this break in his schedule as an opportunity to spend some time at a wellness retreat to work on some personal issues.”
According to another international portal, Harington has been staying at a luxury rehab facility in Connecticut for one month to get professional help for stress and alcohol abuse. According to the publication, the ending of Game of Thrones Season 8 “really hit him hard” and hence he decided to seek assistance.
According to the report, the actor has been undergoing
“psychological coaching, practicing mindful meditation and cognitive behavioral therapy to combat stress and deal with negative emotions at the facility, which costs over USD 120,000 a month.”
This comes after HBO released its documentary Game of Thrones: The Last Watch. Screenshots of a shocking Kit Harington while reading about Jon Snow’s role in the fate of Daenerys Targaryen quickly started circulating. The documentary which aired on May 26, showed the cast seated at the last reading of the show and cameras captured some priceless reactions of actors learning about what was to unfold in the final moments of decade-long medieval epic drama.
A scene in the 2-hour-long documentary showed Harington‘s real-time response when he found out that Jon Snow would kill Daenerys, his queen, lover, and aunt, in order to save the realm. Almost in disbelief, and hands buried in his hair, Harington then stares blankly into his page as the scene is being read out loud. Harington told Stephen Colbert during a Late Show appearance earlier this month that he was
“very shocked and surprised at certain events unfolding”.
We wish Kit Harington a fast recovery.
