Kit Harington has checked himself into rehab to work on some personal issues, 10 days after Game of Thrones reached its conclusion.
The 32-year-old has been hit so hard by the end of his career-defining franchise that he turned to alcohol and is now being treated for stress, PageSix reports.
A representative for Kit confirmed in a statement: 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 report suggests that the British actor sought solace at a luxury $120,000 a month retreat in Connecticut with the full support of his wife Rose Leslie.
A source told the publication: The end of GoT really hit Kit hard… He realised “this is it — this is the end”, it was something they had all worked so hard on for so many years. He had a moment of, what next?
The insider continued: Everyone close to him really wanted him to get some rest. Right now, he just needs peace and quiet.
Kit was visibly moved to tears at the last table read for his final scenes in Season 8, a behind the scenes documentary revealed this week.
He has played central character Jon Snow for the last nine years, with a sharp rise to prominence at the age of 23 when the HBO show first gained traction in 2011.
The actor previously said that he broke down when the final scenes for Episode 6 were filmed and explained how taking off his familiar costume felt like he was being skinned.

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, he told Esquire.
Then they called “Wrap!” and I just f***ing broke down. It was this onslaught of relief and grief about not being able to do this again.
It wasnt so much about Jon. It was about not being in this world, not getting to smell those smells, fight those fights, be with these people – the whole package.
Filming wrapped back in July 2018, but the final farewell episodes began to air this April.
