Kit Harington has revealed that he went to therapy over his Game of Thrones character Jon Snow's temporary death. "When you become the cliffhanger of a TV show, and a TV show probably at the height of its power, the focus on you is f**king terrifying," Harington tells Variety. "You get people shouting at you on the street, ‘Are you dead?’ At the same time you have to have this appearance. All of your neuroses—and I’m as neurotic as any actor—get heightened with that level of focus." The 32-year-old actor continues, "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 twenties.
