Kit Harington went to a rehabilitation center to be treated for stress and alcohol use, as the last season of Game of Thrones was broadcast, his spokesperson announced.
When the news became public, it turned out that Kit was joking about his existing film credits and joking about his lack of future opportunities during his debut period on Saturday Night Live last month.
The actor, 32, presented the American comedy shows a few days after the broadcast of season 8 in the HBO series was broadcast.
First time: Kit Harington joked about his existing film credits and enjoyed his lack of future opportunities during his debut period on Saturday Night Live, weeks before he went to the rehab clinic.
Targeting the audience, Kit joked: & many of you have seen me on Game Of Thrones, which is probably a good thing, some of my other credits are the movie Pompeii – which was probably more of a disaster than the event on which it was based.
& # 39; I was also in a movie called Silent Hill: Revelation 3D. Everyone a fan? No, I didn't think so. & # 39;
Kit & # 39; s wife Rose Leslie – who played Ygritte at the show – spoke to him from the audience and asked her husband how the pair will & # 39; survive & # 39; in the aftermath that his lead role is coming to an end.
Rose joked: & # 39; I don't care (the final), I'm not a nerd. My question is, what are we going to do now for money?

Teasing husband: Rose asked her husband what they would do for money, just kidding: & We didn't keep anything and you kept saying, "Oh, I'm the king of the north, we can order Uber Eats every night!" & # 39;
& # 39; We have saved nothing, and you kept saying, "I am the king of the north, we can order Uber Eats every night."
Kit arrived a month ago at 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 to DailyMail.com that he had checked into 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.
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 ;.
Kit is allowed to come and go from the very private facility near the small town of Madison.
His wife and former GoT-costar Rose 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.

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.
