Kit Harington who played the role of Jon Snow in the famous series Game of Thrones recently checked himself into rehab. He entered into a rehab facility to deal with "stress and alcohol use," ahead of the show's finale on HBO. It is reported that the show's ending "really hit him hard" and resulted in the recent turn of events.

A "friend" of the actor reportedly told a leading entertainment portal that "The end of ‘GoT' really hit Kit hard ... He realized ‘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 source also revealed that his wife Rose Leslie, who was also was a part of Game of Thrones, played the role of Ygritte, and whom he married last year is extremely supportive. The source stated, "Everyone close to him really wanted him to get some rest. Right now, he just needs peace and quiet."

While Kit's publicist issued a statement that stated, "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." Kit has reportedly checked into a Privé-Swiss health facility in Connecticut, and is undergoing "psychological coaching, practising mindful meditation and cognitive behavioural therapy to combat stress and deal with negative emotions at the facility, which costs over USD 120,000 a month."

Kit had also recently revealed how he doesn't want to do another Jon Snow. In his interview with Harper's BAZAAR US, he said, "I don't want to try and repeat Jon Snow. Maybe something slightly lighter. It's a very heavy, heavy show, heavy role. So something which is a bit lighter, a bit funnier maybe. Other than that, I don't really know."
