After his work in the final season Game of ThronesActor Keith Harington signed up for a health retreat in Connecticut to solve "personal problems," according to a spokesman for Harington, who spoke to Associated Press,
A 32-year-old man signed up at the Privé-Swiss health resort "weeks before" the series finale, according to New york post, The Privé Swiss website states that it offers "luxurious, private psychiatric treatment for executives, celebrities, and more." Report from Page six says Harington signed up to deal with "stress and alcohol before the show ends."
A friend close to Harington spoke with Page six about the problems faced by the actor, including finding out what will happen to him after he played such a significant role in Game of Thrones.
"He understood:" Here it is – this is the end, "it was something they had worked so hard for for so many years," said a New York Post source. “He had a moment, what next? He is in the clinic mainly because of stress and exhaustion, as well as alcohol. His wife Rose is very supportive of me. All his relatives really wanted him to rest a little. Right now he just needs peace and quiet. "
In addition to having been at a performance-demanding performance for nearly a decade, the end of the game probably also had an impact on Harington. John Snow's character ends the series with the murder of Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clark), a character that many people loved and supported throughout the HBO show. Harington and Clark became close friends during the series, and the series also had a romantic relationship.
A hint at how the moment that touched Harington can be seen in a recent documentary. Last watchwho detailed the final season Game of Thrones. In the documentary, Harington first learns how his character will kill Dani during the first reading of the table for the entire cast. Although many other actors have already read the script, Harington waited for the table to read to see how the show would end.
At that moment, when he finds out, Harington shocks his chair away from the character development and puts his hands to his face in surprise. Although Harington is likely to be dealing with something more than what happened on the show, the moment clearly influenced him.
Harington had previously talked with Men & # 39; s Journal about the last season, saying that it was an "incredible experience" of working on the show.
“I am very lucky that I am even in it, and now it is coming to an end,” said Harington. “In a sense, I do not know how to describe it; It was a lot to me. It was such a big part of my life, and it doesn’t fit into any description of how I feel about it. But it was an incredible experience, and I was fortunate enough to be in the role of John Snow. "
Harington also told us about some of his favorite moments, episodes and seasons of the series, noting the episode of the battle, which many fans consider one of the best episodes of the entire series.
“I think the most magical season for me was season 2,” said Harington. “We realized that the show was successful, it was getting so big and it was doing well. We went to Iceland, and it was just an amazing time in my life. My favorite episode is likely to be Hardhome in the 5th season. It seemed that it was here that the show increased slightly and became even more. Thrones are always massive, but Hardhome was just huge and at the time was one of the biggest things we ever did. In our series, some of the hardest working people I've ever worked with, and especially in this episode, they gave everything they had, and it helped make it even better for everyone who works on it. ”
