Kit Harrington, the actor who has gained worldwide fame for playing Jon Snow on hit HBO series Game of Thrones, has reportedly checked himself into luxury rehab for alcohol use and stress ahead of the show’s finale.
Multiple sources confirmed that the show’s end really “hit him hard,” given how he had connected with his character and his co-stars over the show’s almost decade-long haul.
Harrington is said to have checked himself into the Privé-Swiss, a health retreat based in Connecticut, for about a month. According to a report by Page Six, he checked himself into the retreat weeks before the May 19 premiere of the show’s finale.
The British actor has been undergoing mindful meditation sessions, psychological coaching, and cognitive behavioral therapy in a bid to deal with negative emotions and stress. All in all, his rehabilitation costs about $120,000 monthly.
A source also confirmed that his wife, Rose Leslie– who he met on the show’s set- has also been very supportive of him.
The source said, “He realized ‘this is it — this is the end’, it was something they had all worked so hard on for so many years. He had a moment of, “What next?” He’s in the clinic predominantly for stress and exhaustion and also alcohol. His wife Rose is being extremely supportive. Everyone close to him really wanted him to get some rest. Right now, he just needs peace and quiet.”
