Kit Harington, the star of HBO’s Game of Thrones, has allegedly checked himself into a rehabilitation center.
Reports suggest that Harrington is at a luxury facility in Connecticut, called Prive-Swiss and that he’s been a guest there for a month now. A representative for actor has revealed that he’s checked himself in primarily due to issues relating to stress, exhaustion, and alcohol. Apparently, the series finale of GoT, which Harington stars as Jon Snow, really took a toll on the actor’s health.
So for the time being, a representative says, “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.”
Harington has been an integral part of the series since it’s the first episode, eight years ago. So naturally, the actor reveals that it’s been difficult in dealing with the show’s imminent final season. So much that he had a bit of a breakdown during his last day of filming. “My final day of shooting, I felt fine … I felt fine … I felt fine … then I went to do my last shots and started hyperventilating a bit …Then they called ‘wrap’ and I just f—-g broke down. It was this onslaught of relief and grief about not being able to do this again,” he said.
For now, though, Harington is away at Prize-Swiss getting the treatment he needs, and sources say he couldn’t have picked a better place to receive help. Costing over $120,000 a month, Prive-Swiss specializes in psychological and emotional treatment programs, as well as a clear program.
At the moment, there’s no update on how long Harington will be a guest there, however, he has a team of people supporting his decision…including his wife, Rose Leslie. Leslie also played a character on GoT.
