According to a report, the ending ofGame of Thrones“really hit him hard,” and are playing a role in his day to day difficulties. As a result,PageSixsays he has been at a Connecticut mental health retreat for a month, having arrived on May 19.
“The British actor has been undergoing psychological coaching, practicing mindful meditation and cognitive behavioral therapy to combat stress and deal with negative emotions at the facility, which costs over $120,000 a month,” the report says. “His actress wife Rose Leslie, 32, whom he met on the set ofGame of Thronesand playedJon Snow’s Wildling companion Ygritte, is being ‘extremely supportive,’ we’re told.”
“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?” a source toldPageSix. “His wife Rose is being extremely supportive. Everyone close to him really wanted him to get some rest. Right now, he just needs peace and quiet.”
Harington played Jon Snow onGame of Thronesfor eight seasons spanning nearly 10 years. The shocking conclusion of the series saw Jon killing his love Daenerys Targaryen, leaving both audiences and cast members a bit puzzled. Video from the first table read of the series finale showed Harington and Emilia Clarke having their minds blown, possibly not in a good way, when they read the conclusion for their characters.
“The actor has been allowed the freedom to leave the facility for breaks over the past month and has been seen by locals in Connecticut heading to AA meetings, a fitness and wellness studio, plus a local book store,” the report reads. “On the same weekend of theGame of Thronesfinale, he was spotted at RJ Julia Booksellers in the small town of Madison, Conn., telling staff he was on ‘holiday’ in the area, according to local reports. One resident who has repeatedly seen the actor in recent weeks on his trips out of the facility told us, ‘Kit looks really good and appears to be very focused on his health and wellness.'”
