Game of Thrones star Kit Harington has checked into a wellness retreat to work on what his representative says are “personal issues.”

A representative for Harington said Tuesday, "Kit has decided to utilise this break in his schedule as an opportunity to spend some time at a wellness retreat to work on some personal issues.” No additional details were released.

The actor has reportedly been at the Connecticut retreat for about a month.

The emotional toll of the decade-long show caused Kit to seek help. Documentary The Last Watch which also released Sunday showed Harington in disbelief upon finding out that his character Jon Snow kills his onscreen love Daenerys Targaryen played by Emilia Clarke.

In a recent interview with Esquire the actor revealed that he had a break down after shooting his final scenes in GoT.

“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 32-year-old actor is married to his “Game of Thrones” co-star Rose Leslie who has reportedly been extremely supportive of her husband during this difficult time.
