Game of Thrones star Kit Harington checks into rehab

Game of Thrones star Kit Harington has checked into rehab for stress and drinking too much.

The London-born actor, who played Jon Snow in the fantasy series, was said to be dealing with a number of ‘personal issues’ at a health retreat in Connecticut.

Kit is reported to have checked into the luxury centre days before the HBO series came to end after eight seasons.

According to the New York Post, he checked in to the facility four weeks ago.

Sources told the newspaper that the actor was working through stress and alcohol problem, which ‘really hit him hard’.

Kit told Esquire magazine in April he broke down after filming Jon’s final scenes.

He said: ‘The 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.

‘Then they called, ‘Wrap!’ And I just broke down. It was this onslaught of relief and grief about not being able to do this again.’

Kit is married to his Game Of Thrones co-star Rose Leslie.
