Kit Harington admitted that his & # 39; heart is breaking & # 39; since he has uttered an emotional farewell to Game Of Thrones after almost 10 years.
The 32-year-old star broke through when he filmed his last scenes for the HBO fantasy series, with the emotional moment captured in a two-hour documentary special, Game Of Thrones: The Last Watch.
The moving moment was broadcast shortly before Kit went to a rehabilitation center to be treated for stress and alcohol use while the last series of the broadcast was broadcast.

& # 39; Ten years ago you entered Nina Gold's office … as a twelve-year-old … and now we are here, your watch has ended & he says to Kit.
& # 39; And it was a hell of a watch. For us, for these people and for so many people around the world.
& # 39; Thank you for being Jon Snow and thank you for being. & # 39;
The couple hugs while the visibly emotional members of the cast around them fight tears – and Kit cannot hide his own emotions.
His voice breaks, Kit declares: & I feel like my heart is breaking. I love this show. & # 39;

Pausing to take control of his emotions, he said: “More than, I think, everything. It has never been a job for me. & # 39;
& # 39; It has been my life. This will always be the best thing I will ever do and be part of … and you have all been my family. I love you for it, thank you very much. & # 39;
Earlier this week, it was announced that Kit had visited a US rehabilitation center to be treated for stress and alcohol use, as the last season of Game of Thrones was broadcast.
The 32-year-old British actor arrived a month ago in the luxury private Swiss wellness center in Connecticut, sources said New York Post.
Harington, who played for eight years as Jon Snow on the show, would allegedly be treated because the final of Game of Thrones was broadcast.
His publicist confirmed DailyMail.com that he had checked in the facility.
& # 39; Kit has decided to use this break in his schedule as an opportunity to spend some time in a wellness retreat to work on some personal issues, & # 39; said his publicist.

Private Swiss wellness retreat, Connecticut
The private mental health clinic was opened in 2008 and offers specialized programs for PTSD, bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, executive burnout and drug addiction.
Their luxury Connecticut retreat is just a two-hour drive from New York.
Their & # 39; Independent Intensive Program & # 39; involves a week stay at the Water & # 39; s Edge Resort – a beautiful beach resort in Westbrook, CT, including five-star suites, a spa, and great food.
The one-week program includes 60-minute sessions of CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), art therapy, massages, yoga, meditation, as well as time with a clinical psychologist.
The facility, which costs more than $ 120,000 a month, teaches its clients how to deal with stress and negative emotions.
A source claiming to be a friend told the post that Harington was at the plant & # 39; mainly for stress and exhaustion and also for alcohol & # 39 ;.
Harington may come and go from the extremely private facility near the small town of Madison.
The news about his check-in to rehab comes a year after the Brit was so drunk in a New York City bar that he had to be dragged by the staff.
The Jon Snow actor was filmed in a fight with bouncers and patrons after he tried to take over a game of pool in the cozy neighborhood bar Barfly.
He was reportedly physically restrained by members of the public, then shown to staff at the door and thrown away.
However the actor – who reportedly made $ 500,000 per episode in the final series of the show – later returned to settle his list and left a generous tip, the bar staff said.

Game of Thrones fans saw Harington in the small town on the same day that the GoT final was broadcast on 19 May.
He was seen by buying books from RJ Julia Booksellers in Madison and told the staff that he was on vacation there.
His wife and former GoT-costar, Rose Leslie, would support him.
& # 39; His wife Rose is exceptionally supportive. Everyone close to him really wanted him to get some rest. At the moment, he just needs peace and quiet, & the source said.
Tearful: in a two-hour documentary released by HBO after the final, the footage behind the scenes showed that Harington tore when he heard his character would kill his love on screen Daenerys Targaryen

The end of the long-running HBO hit series is said to have hit Harington hard.
He went from virtually unknown to world stars after his role in the series, in which he played the courageous Snow, whose actions in the final episode were one of the biggest shock absorbers of the show.
The final attracted 19.3 million viewers in the US alone.
He was open in interviews during the long-running series about how the show influenced him and catapulted him to fame.
Harington admitted breaking into tears while reading the table for the final season, as well as when he wrapped around shooting for the last time.
In a two-hour documentary that HBO released after the final, Harington showed behind the scenes that he was tearing when he heard that his character would kill his love on screen Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke).
& # 39; My heart is breaking. I love this show more than anything. It's never been a job for me, it's my life, "he said in the documentary when his last scene was filmed.
Landmark: Harington, who played for eight years as Jon Snow on the show, is said to be treated because the Game of Thrones final was broadcast
In an interview with Variety in March, Harington revealed that he was seeking therapy at the height of his GoT fame and was vulnerable because of the short death of his character at the end of the fifth series of the show.
& # 39; My darkest period was when the show seemed to be so much about Jon, when he died and came back, & # 39; said Harington.
& # 39; I really did not like the focus of the entire show that came on Jon – although it made my problem about being the weak link invalid because it was about Jon. & # 39;
& # 39; When you become the cliffhanger of a TV show and a TV show probably at the height of its power, the focus on you is f *** and terrifying. & # 39;
He went on to say that the period in his life was not & # 39; good time & # 39; used to be.
& # 39; I thought I needed to feel that I was the happiest person in the world, while in fact I felt very vulnerable. I had a shaky time in my life there – as I think many people do it in their twenties.
& # 39; That was a time when I started therapy and started talking to people. I felt very unsafe and didn't talk to anyone. I had to feel very grateful for what I have, but I felt incredibly worried about whether I could even catch. "
