Cape Town – Kit Harington reportedly checked himself into a treatment facility to focus on his wellbeing.

A rep for the Game of Thrones actor confirmed to E! News: "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."

PageSix was the first to report Kit has been at a "wellness retreat" in Connecticut since before the HBO show's final episode on Sunday, 19 May – where he has been undergoing psychological coaching, practicing mindful meditation and cognitive behavioural therapy for stress and anxiety.

In a recent interview with Variety, Kit revealed he started going to therapy after he learned that Jon Snow dies and then comes back to life.

"I started therapy, and started talking to people. I had felt very unsafe, and I wasn’t talking to anyone. I had to feel very grateful for what I have, but I felt incredibly concerned about whether I could even fucking act."

In a behind-the-scenes doccie after the GoT finale, The Last Watch, fans can see how visibly emotional Kit was to find out that his character, Jon Snow, kills Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke).
