Kit Harington Opened Up About Seeking Therapy After Getting Murdered

Kit Harington said Jon Snow's death fueled his neuroses and led to a dark time in his life. File

"That was a time when I started therapy, and started talking to people", he shared.

Say what you want about HBO's Game of Thrones adaptation-at least it's going to have an ending.

Harington, who plays Jon Snow in the HBO megahit, began work on Game of Thrones years ago, just like numerous other young actors in the ensemble: As a relative newcomer about to get global exposure thanks to an acclaimed new TV series. "I took off the costume, and it felt like my skin was being peeled away", he said. I had a shaky time in my life around there - like I think a lot of people do in their 20s. I was very emotional.

Harington said in an interview published by Variety on Tuesday that he feels "like we are living in a more "Thrones"-like world".

When his character, Jon Snow, was temporarily killed off in the fifth season's finale before getting resurrected, the pressure on Harington became hard to bear. "I just felt that certain political figures tried to emulate Joffrey, and things went a little bit wrong".

People shouting at him on the streets - everyone, even the president wanting to know if Jon was really dead - got to Harington, understandably so.

As the HBO series wraps its upcoming final season, Harington tells Variety about the show's complex female characters, what he'll miss most about being a part of the epic fantasy, and the privilege he feels knowing how the series concludes. "All of your neuroses - and I'm as neurotic as any actor - get heightened with that level of focus".

Variety published an wonderful profile ahead of the eighth and final season of the hit HBO show, and it sounds like the actor responsible for playing Jon Snow didn't take his character's death too well. "I know who this is now, and I'm at peace with who this is".

"[HBO] went balls out, I think is the term", he joked. Other threads were simply dropped, and we're hoping they'll get picked up again. He said he was "satisfied" with how Jon's story ended and with his closing performance as the character.

Meanwhile, all eyes are on the return of the original Game of Thrones series, which will kick off its massively-anticipated final season on April 14, 2019.
