Actor Kit Harington, who played Jon Snow in the Game Of Thrones series, is currently undergoing treatment in a specialized center to treat personal problems related to stress and alcohol.

This information echoes the recent release of the documentary “The Last Watch”, a making-of retracing the shooting of the season 8 finale of the Game Of Thrones series and in which we discover a Kit Harington very affected by the near end of the adventure that lasted nearly a decade. A passage from this film particularly marked the fans, the one in which the interpreter of Jon Snow takes note of the final scenario, thus learning that his character would become the murderer of his aunt and lover Daenerys (Emilia Clarke). A passage that already says a lot about Kit Harrington’s state of mind at that time, which he himself commented on in Jimmy Fallon’s popular television show The Tonight Show: “Some elements of the script have me so surprised and shocked that they made me cry ”.

An upheaval for the now 32-year-old actor, who aroused in him the need to start therapy, as he confided, still to Variety, driven by a psychological and emotional state that continued to deteriorate since the advent of his character, who became more and more central in the series: ”It was not a very pleasant period in my life (…) like many young people, I tried to convince myself that I was the luckier in the world, when I had become very vulnerable ”.

Since putting forward his character as Jon Snow, Kit Harington has developed a psychological vulnerability due to the stress engendered by the success of the Game Of Thrones series.

The Game Of Thrones adventure, which has become the most popular program in the world in recent years, was therefore not without consequences for Kit Harington, who quickly went from an anonymous young man to a true icon of the small screen for millions of fans. A media position that has become “terrifying” with the growing importance of his character, even causing him to collapse at the end of a very grueling final shoot.
