Actress Rose Leslie’s husband and fellow Game of Thrones alum, Kit Harington, has reportedly spent time in a luxury rehab facility after having allegedly checked in in secret a month ago.

PageSix has it that Kit, 32, went to the wellness retreat before the series finale of Game of Thrones aired, with a representative of his saying in a statement to Metro.co.uk: ‘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.’

A source close to the actor has said: ‘The end of ‘GoT’ really hit Kit hard …

‘He realised “this is it — this is the end”, it was something they had all worked so hard on for so many years. He had a moment of, “what next”?

‘He’s in the clinic predominantly for stress and exhaustion and also alcohol.’

Meanwhile Rose, also 32, is said to have been ‘extremely supportive’.

With all that in mind, here’s a closer look at Rose, her wedding to Kit, and her time spent starring opposite him on Game of Thrones.

Rose Leslie’s career and time on Game of Thrones

Rose Eleanor Arbuthnot-Leslie was born in Aberdeen, Scotland and raised until the age of ten in a 15th century castle called Lickleyhead – her family’s ancestral home.

She studied for three years at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, and won a Scottish Bafta for Best Acting Performance – New Talent for her part in New Town, which was her first leading role on screen.

Her rise to mainstream fame didn’t come until she played Gwen Dawson on Downton Abbey from 2010 until 2015 and then Ygritte in Game of Thrones from 2012 until 2014.

In Game of Thrones, she famously delivered one of the most iconic lines in the whole series which became synonymous with her character: ‘You know nothing, Jon Snow’.

In addition to her success on TV, Rose has appeared in the likes of The Last Witch Hunter opposite Vin Diesel in 2015, and Morgan in 2016.

She currently plays Maia Rindell on The Good Wife spin-off The Good Fight, alongside Christine Baranski and Delroy Lindo.
