English actor Kit Harington secretly checked himself into rehab for stress and alcohol use because his wife, Rose Leslie, asked him to.

A source close to the couple revealed the Game of Thrones star went to the luxury health retreat Privé Swiss in Connecticut, USA, weeks before the finale of the hit show for the sake of his wife.

“Kit went to treatment for Rose,” an insider told US Weekly.

“He was living an unhealthy lifestyle. He was stressed all the time and using unhealthy coping tools.”

The Good Fight actress is reportedly very supportive.

“[She] loves him very much. She’d been telling him to get into treatment for a little while now,” the source said.

Kit has been receiving psychological coaching, practising mindful meditation and cognitive behavioural therapy to help deal with his stress and negative emotions, Page Six reports.

His decision was reportedly spurred on by the ending of the globally popular fantasy series.

“He realised, ‘This is it – this is the end.’ It was something they’d all worked so hard on for so many years. He had a moment of, ‘What next?’ ” a close friend told the celebrity site.

“He’s in the clinic predominantly for stress and exhaustion and also alcohol.”

Kit and Rose (both 32) met when she joined the show as the wildling Ygritte in season 2. The pair said “I do” near Rose’s childhood home in Scotland in 2018, Metro reports.
