Game of Thrones Season 8 marked the final time we would be seeing one of the most iconic shows in television history. We had to bid farewell to beloved characters like Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen, who have almost become a part of our lives. However, no one was hit harder by the impact of the end to GOT like actor Kit Harington. Kit has been a part of Game of Thrones from the first episode and playing a character as strenuous as Jon Snow took a major toll on the actor. Recently, it was revealed that Harington has checked into rehab for stress, exhaustion and alcohol.

Richard Madden, who played Robb Stark in the first three seasons of GOT, was asked by Associated Press about his good friend Kit's rehab stint during the New York premiere of his film, Rocketman. Initially, Richard spoke about how he sometimes forgets that he was a part of the legendary show but that it was a very big part of his life and that he was thrilled that the series went so well. Furthermore, when asked about Harington's health, the actor refused to comment as he said, "I'm not going to comment on that just now, thank you."

I love GOT at the start of season 1 then hate it from episode 10 all the way through

Good! Just leave Kit alone and give him his privacy. He's in rehab for a reason and disrespecting his privacy could very well effect his recovery.

As if he should have!

I feel badly for the actors. They gave it their all for all 8 seasons and did an exceptional job with a poorly thought out script. I hope they understand the outcry after episode 6 was not because of them but because the fans ( at least I did ) thought they deserved better. We felt let down by the writers.

Just stop this and leave Kit and the other alone! It is nobody else's business other than to wish him well and a quick recovery.

Absolutely.I agree

Season 8 was a disaster. Terrible writing.

Hang Tough Kit, God's Got You!! I hope you feel better soon❤

"REFUSES" in capitals as though he was obligated to and everyone is shocked that he didn't do it.

It should have read "friend refuses to discuss friends personal life in public"

It's no one's business...feel better kit!

It's almost as if it's nobody's business *gasp*
