An unnamed source said that “The end of GoT really hit Kit hard."

“His wife Rose is being extremely supportive. Everyone close to him really wanted him to get some rest. Right now, he just needs peace and quiet," the source continued.
Harington's previously opened up about the toll Game Of Thrones had on him.
