Kit Harington checks into 'wellness retreat' as Game of Thrones star works on 'personal issues'

Game of Thrones star Kit Harington checked into a "wellness retreat" ahead of the show’s ending.

The London-born actor was working on “personal issues” at a retreat in the US before the HBO series came to end this month after eight seasons.

Harington, who played Jon Snow in the fantasy series, is reported to have checked into the luxury centre weeks before its May 19 finale.

According to the New York Post’s Page Six, he remains at the luxury health retreat Privé-Swiss in Connecticut and checked in almost a month ago.

Sources told the website that the actor checked into the centre over stress and alcohol use, which “really hit him hard”.

A representative for the star told Standard Online: “Kit has decided to utilise this break in his schedule as an opportunity to spend some time at a wellness retreat to work on some personal issues.”

The news emerged after a documentary about the show, The Last Watch, showed Harington in tears as he learned about his character’s fate.

Harington told Esquire 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 f***ing broke down. It was this onslaught of relief and grief about not being able to do this again."

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