Last night, the BBC confirmed that Game of Thrones star Kit Harington has checked into a luxury rehab for stress.  "Kit has decided to utilize this break in his schedule as an opportunity to spend some time at a wellness retreat to work on some personal issues," the actor's rep said in a statement.

According to Page Six, the 32-year-old actor has been in a Connecticut facility for almost a month, and checked in before the series finale on May 19.
Kit, who married co-star Rose Leslie last year, has been quite vocal in the past about his struggle with fame, claiming that it is “terrifying” being in the spotlight.

A new documentary, Game of Thrones: The Last Watch, which aired on Sunday, shared a glimpse at Harington's emotional goodbye to the show. The programme showed the actor breaking down in tears after reading through the show's final scenes and sobbed while addressing his beloved cast and crew during the finale episode.
