The actor who portrays Jon Snow previously opened up about the ups and downs that come along with being the star of Game of Thrones and also maintained he needed therapy.

The actor also went on to reveal the fact that filming the final season left him "frayed" and "vulnerable".

While on an interview with Variety Harington claimed,

"It wasn’t a very good time in my life. I felt I had to feel that I was the most fortunate person in the world when actually, I felt very vulnerable. I had a shaky time in my life around there — like, I think a lot of people do in their 20s."

He then added,

"That was a time when I started therapy, and started talking to people. I had felt very unsafe, and I wasn’t talking to anyone."

We wish you the best for your recovery Kit!
