Game of Thrones actor Kit Harington is undergoing treatment after the end of the HBO television series in which he starred as the heartthrob Jon Snow.

His representative shared that “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.”

The statement did not give details of his issues, but The New York Post’s Page Six column said that the ending of the show hit Harington hard and he checked into the wellness centre where he will be treated for stress, exhaustion and alcohol use.


Page Six added that Harington checked into the clinic several weeks before the medieval fantasy series came to an end on May 19.

Harington, 32, propelled to world stardom with Game of Thrones, in which he played the role of the courageous Snow, whose actions in the final episode were one of the show’s biggest shockers.

Harington, who married his Game of Thrones co-star Rose Leslie in 2018, told Variety earlier this year that he had previously found it hard to deal with the fame and attention the show brought, calling it “terrifying.”
