Indeed, reports have been flooding the internet stating that the Game of Thrones major actor Kit Harrington also known as Jon Snow has been checked into a rehab clinic. Jon Snow who was seen at the Game of Throne Season Finale was reported to have been tackling with stress, alcohol, and exhaustion since before the airing of the season finale.
Apparently, it seems the schedule of tasks given to Kit – having dedicated 10 years of his life to the movie has taken a negative toll on him. Seeing this as a trending topic recently, some fans, however, started mocking him and the show he just concluded, but luckily for him, some fans with a sense of decency stood up and rally their support for Jon Snow.
Kit in an interview with Esquire few months back, had however disclosed that he broke down after filming the show’s final scenes.
“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 said. “Then they called, ‘Wrap!’ and I just fu*king broke down. It was this onslaught of relief and grief about not being able to do this again. It wasn’t 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.
“But the weirdest bit was when we came off set and they started taking the costume off and it felt like being skinned,” the actor added. “It felt like they were unceremoniously, for the last time, ripping off this character. I was still blubbering my tears. The costume girls were like, ‘Fu*king, come on, get it together.’ I’m being very actorly and crying. I remember going, ‘Wait, wait, wait!’ And they wouldn’t. They just ripped. I was like, ‘I need to say goodbye.’ But it was too late. He was gone.”
Replying to the mockery, Kit representative in a Statement disclosed that Kit actually decides to utilize his break as an opportunity to spend more time at a wellness retreat in order to work on some personal matters bothering him at the moment. But according to multiple sources, Kit, which is a British actor has however been undergoing mental coaching, behavioral therapy as well as practicing meditation to alleviate stress and negative emotions, costing over $120,000 a month.
Rose Lesile, Kit Wife is extremely supportive of his move. Kit met Lesile on the set of Game of Thrones and played Jon Snow’s companion Ygritte.
