The 32-year-old Kit Harington, most famously known as Jon Snow on the acclaimed fantasy drama series "Game of Thrones" checked into a rehabilitation facility.


Harington's PR team confirmed to Page Six today that the star had been at the health retreat in Connecticut since before the show's finale aired on 19 May.

The British actor, who had portrayed Jon Snow for the past eight years, was battling with stress, exhaustion, and alcohol use.

A spokesperson for Harington told The Hollywood Reporter that he is undergoing psychological coaching, practicing mindful meditation and cognitive behavior therapy:


"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."

His wife Rose Leslie, who portrayed Ygritte on "Game of Thrones" from seasons two to four, is said to be "very supportive" of Harington.

Even though filming of "Game of Thrones" wrapped up in July 2018, the cast has been dealing with exhaustive media tours, interviews, and other commitments.


Harington has been outspoken about the stress associated with starring in such a massively successful show at the height of its fame.

Speaking to Variety earlier this year, Harington discussed the pressure of dealing with fans. His famous character made him feel vulnerable:

"When you become the cliffhanger of a TV show, and a TV show probably at the height of its power, the focus on you is[expletive] terrifying."
