It’s been more than a week since Game Of Thrones ended and fans still haven’t gotten over what went down in the last 6 episodes of the show. While the ending shocked many, looks like nobody was affected as Jon Snow himself. Earlier this week, snippets from HBO’s GOT behind-the-scenes documentary called the Last Watch went viral and Kit Harrington‘s reaction to his character killing Daenerys Targaryen is truly heartbreaking. You legit want to give him a hug.

But unfortunately, in recent news, Kit has checked himself into rehab to deal with depression and alcohol use post the end of GOT. In a recent interview with Esquire, he opened up about what it was like on the last day of the shoot.

He said:

The final day of shooting, I felt fine… I felt fine… I felt fine… Then I went to do my last shots and started hyperventilating a bit. Then they called, ‘Wrap!’ And I just… broke down. It was this onslaught of relief and grief about not being able to do this again.

The actor has entered a wellness facility in Connecticut to get better. A friend of Kit told Page Six, that he felt that this is it… this is the end and that the actor had a moment when he was like, what next? He clarified that he’s in the clinic to deal with stress, exhaustion, and alcohol use.

Kit Harrington had also earlier opened up about how he was extremely terrified and stressed when the focus of the show had shifted to him. This was during the time when his character had died and come back to life.

We hope the actor gets better super soon and we can see him back on screen to entertain us.
