Kit Harington, the heartthrob British actor who is most recognized for playing Jon Snow in the hit medieval fantasy series “Game of Thrones,” has been reported to have entered therapy over a week ago following the conclusion of the HBO show. In fact, he was admitted to the treatment center for over a month already.

Harington, among the “Game of Thrones” cast, has been prominent in talking about the personal toll the grand production of the series’ final season took on the cast since shooting began in 2017.

In fact, the diagnosis of his therapy admittance specifies his undergoing rehabilitation for “stress and alcohol use,” according to the Daily Mail UK.

Jon Snow's luxury rehab

An official statement released through Kit Harington’s representative reveals that he had gone to a wellness center in Connecticut, just mere weeks before the final episode of “Game of Thrones” season 6 premiered on HBO. “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,” noted Harington’s spokesperson.

Part of this rehabilitation regimen at Connecticut’s Privé-Swiss wellness center involves psychological coaching, sessions of mindful meditation, as well as cognitive behavioral therapy. Harington’s monthly bill at the Privé-Swiss is estimated to be more than $120k a month, but a family friend notes that the 32-year-old actor’s wife Rose Leslie has been at his side through his personal ordeal with his physical stress and negative emotions, exacerbated by the final conclusion of “Game of Thrones” on HBO. Harington and Leslie actually met on set, with the latter having portrayed Jon Snow’s first and short-lived love interest, Ygritte.

Emotional toll at production's end

There have been considerable efforts to keep Kit Harington’s current activities under wraps. This is indicated by how only after “Game of Thrones” finally ended that residents of Madison, Connecticut began seeing him commuting and buying books in town. The Privé-Swiss center is on the outskirts of Madison. His only response to fan questions then was that he was taking a vacation following the finale.

Harington’s emotional roller-coaster with the production of “Game of Thrones” was especially pronounced on footage from the first table reading of season 8. This was captured on the HBO show’s official production documentary for the show’s conclusion, “The Last Watch” which premiered this past Sunday, May 26. In particular, the plot pointed out that his character would kill his second love, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke).

In the end had a profound effect on him, which only got worse at the complete end of the shooting schedule.

“It was this onslaught of relief and grief about not being able to do this again,” said Harington at the end of production. “My heart is breaking. I love this show more than anything. It has never been a job for me, it's my life.”
