Kit Harington is happy to have ended up in rehab after Game of Thrones ended.
The 34-year-old actor admitted that he faced some “mental health issues” towards the end of the HBO series, in which he played Jon Snow for eight years, and Keith thinks taking time out for himself was the best thing he could do.
Speaking at SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show, he said, “I had some mental health issues after Thrones — and around the end of Thrones, to be honest — and I think it was directly related to nature. about the show and what I’ve been doing for years.
“I think I took a hiatus of sorts after Thrones where I said, ‘I don’t want to work for a year. I want to really focus on myself. ” I’m really happy I did it. “
Back in 2019, Keith spent a month at the luxurious Prive-Swiss Wellness Center in Connecticut, and his spokesperson explained, “Keith decided to use this break from his schedule as an opportunity to spend some time at the wellness center to work on some of them. personal problems. “
Meanwhile, Keith said he is thrilled to return to work after Game of Thrones ends, but the COVID-19 pandemic has put his plans on hold.
He said, “Going back to work and deciding what to do and what to choose, you know you couldn’t predict a pandemic, so when I wanted to go back to work, the pandemic hit, so I thought, ‘Ugh, for God’s sake.’
There was a bonus for Keith and his 34-year-old wife, Rose Leslie, however, since they gave birth to a son around this time.
He said: “What was given to us by this was a forced time together. And because of this, we had a baby.
“For me, the main result of the pandemic was that I became a father. Over the past year and a half, I have had a very deep and amazing experience. “
