Kit Harington glad he attended rehab after “Game of Thrones”

Kit Harington believes he made the right choice to take a step back from acting and enter rehab after Game of Thrones came to an end.

Harington, who played Jon Snow on the hit HBO series for eight years, explained that he realised he needed to pump the brakes on acting to focus on his own well-being, reports Page Six

“I went through some mental health difficulties after Thrones — and during the end of Thrones, to be honest — and I think it was directly to do with the nature of the show and what I’ve been doing for years,” the actor, 34, said on SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show Friday.

“I think I took a sort of break after ‘Thrones’ where I said, ‘I don’t want to work for a year. I want to really kind of concentrate on myself,’” he said. “I’m really happy I did that.”
