35-year-old actress Rose Leslie talked about how her husband, 35-year-old actor and Game of Thrones star Kit Harington recovered from his alcohol addiction. She announced this in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar.
Leslie said that her husband, like her, lived in the binge scene for several years. However, after wrapping up filming for Game of Thrones in 2019, Harington became addicted to alcohol when he said he felt like a bad person and suffered from depression. After that, the actor paused his film career and entered the rehabilitation center for treatment.
According to Leslie, the main salvation for her husband was the society of anonymous alcoholics. “The Anonymous alcoholic makes him feel like he’s not alone; he feels heard. And if he hadn’t been rehabilitated, he’d be in a completely different state now,” the artist said.
Harington’s wife noted that neither she nor anyone else was held responsible for Keith’s conduct. “It’s up to him to decide to drink again. No one can stop him from doing what he decides to do… I don’t want to put that stress on him. He has to take responsibility. about his behavior. have to protect him from this,” the actress said.
In August, Harrington revealed in a discussion with the Sunday Times the “traumatic” things that happened during and after the filming of the hit HBO series, including unhappiness and alcoholism. “I’ve been through some terrible things,” he said. The things that have happened to me since the end of the Throne, and the things that have happened in the Throne, hurt my heart, including the alcohol.
