The month of April was full of both excitement and disappointment. April had kept the audiences at the edge of their seat with the final series Avengers: Endgame and Game of Thrones Season 8. The biggest show in the world and the last series of Marvel ended at the same in the same month. Game of Thrones which had ended just weed was not just heavy for the GOT fans but also for the cast members. Fans were disappointed how the decade long show suddenly had a fall in GOT’s season 8 episode 6. The cast members were also not quite ready to bid bye to each other but eventually, they have begun to move on. It’s all set for Sophie Turner aka Sansa Stark as she will be seen next in X men’s Dark Phoenix as Gene. Even Maisie Williams aka Arya Stark has got few projects lined up before her. But the actor Kit Harington who played the role Jon Snow does not seem to have any projects lined up at the present post the ending of GoT. According to the previous report, he was known to have been taking a break. But it is revealed now that the actor is going through some tough time and thus checked into rehab.
According to Page Six, Kit Harington has checked into a Prive-Swiss health facility in Connecticut where he is seeking help. The ending of the show had hit him hard which resulted in the recent turn of events. It has been revealed that the actor checked into the rehabs before the finale episode got premiered in HBO. It has been a month now that he had been in the retreat centre which costs over $120, 000 per month.
They all worked really hard for the show for so many years and knowing that the end of the show has just arrived had hit Kit really hard. One of actor Kit Harington’s friend revealed to the publication that he had a moment of ‘what’s next?’. He said the realization of ‘This is the end’ had really hit him hard. He is going through a variety of psychological treatments- from coaching and mindful meditation to cognitive behavioural therapy. His friend after that added, “He’s in the clinic predominantly for stress and exhaustion and also alcohol. His wife Rose [Leslie] is being extremely supportive. Everyone close to him really wanted him to get some rest. Right now, he just needs peace and quiet.”
On the positive note, the actor was always very vocal about the struggles that he had to cope as demands came from the series. The 32-year-old British actor shared with the publicity in an interview “I really didn’t like the focus of the whole show coming onto Jon. When you become the cliffhanger of a TV show, and a TV show probably at the height of its power, the focus on you is f***ing terrifying.”
He has added more to it while he said, “When you become the cliffhanger of a TV show, and a TV show probably at the height of its power, the focus on you is f—–g terrifying. That was a time when I started therapy and started talking to people. I had felt very unsafe, and I wasn’t talking to anyone,” he added. “It wasn’t a very good time in my life. I felt I had to feel that I was the most fortunate person in the world when actually, I felt very vulnerable. I had a shaky time in my life around there — like I think a lot of people do in their 20s.”
Kit Harrington had made up his mind and even confessed that he wouldn’t want to do another Jon Snow. He wants to try to play the roles which are lighter rather what he got from GoT with a heavy role in a heavy show.
