Kit Harrington was reported to have gone to rehab post the finale of Game of Thrones; for reasons of ‘stress’ and ‘grief’ as the show had ended. He had checked into Connecticut’s Privé-Swiss wellness facility, a spacious and spacy wellness retreat. He was recently seen out of the facility for the first time since last month.
Why He Went Into Rehab…
In reality, the actor had been at the facility for months, way before the finale of the game of thrones had premiered. His stay there stretched to almost a month. The private facility costs around $120,000 a month and helps their clients to deal with stress and negative emotions. Alcoholism was the predominant reason for Kit’s retreat.
He looked very casual yet chic in dark blue T-shirt and grey chino trousers, coupled with dark blue suede shoes. His PR stated that when Kit gets breaks in-between his schedule he uses that time to retreat and work on some personal issues. His wife Rose Leslie had been very supportive of Kit throughout.
The show’s end took a toll on Kit; the show had meant a lot to him and it coming to an end was just too much for him to handle and process. The show brought him into people’s sight and eventually lead to a great fan following.
Jon Snow was not an easy character for Kit to play; for it was an important role. He didn’t like the fact that at one point in the show around Season 5, the whole attention had come to Kit’s character. He found it very hard to handle, the pressure.
