It turns out that the ending of Game of Thrones did more than just disappoint people, it appears to have caused Kit Harington to take a much-needed break...
The Game of Thrones finale hit everyone hard, but for Kit Harington, for all his character went through, he needed to decompress from all of it. The actor, who played fan favorite Jon Snow for eight seasons, checked into a “wellness retreat” since the finale of the HBO fantasy series.
“Kit has decided to utilize this break in his schedule as an opportunity to spend some time at a wellness retreat to work on some personal issues,” Harington’s rep told Deadline. “It definitely won’t impact any potential upcoming work.”
Harington was also visibly emotional in the documentary Game of Thrones: The Last Watch which aired May 26. We saw Harington get emotional while filming his final scene where Grey Worm (Jacob Anderson) is killing prisoners after King’s Landing has been burnt to a crisp. We also saw him brought to tears during the table read for the finale as he finds out that he is the one that kills his Auntie/Lover Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke).
Hopefully he recovers well and is able to move forward happily in his life.
The same can't be said for many people who saw the Game of Thrones finale.
