When The iron Throne star Kit Harington underwent rehab, it was a sobering experience for his wife and co-star Rose Leslie as well.
Kit (Jon Snow) and Rose (Ygritte) have played lovers on and off-screen and have been married since 2018. But Rose says she eventually learned she couldn’t save her partner from his troubles. The actress made the rare comments in a cover interview for Harper’s Bazaar United KingdomJune 2022 (on sale from May 4).
“I learned a lot about addiction and it’s something Kit is always going to be aware of, but it’s up to him to choose whether to drink again,” said the actress, who stars in the HBO Max series The Time Traveler’s Wife. “No amount of nanny will be able to stop him from doing what he decides to do…I don’t choose to put that pressure on myself. The responsibility for his behavior lies with him. It’s not for me to keep him d ‘she.”
At the end of May 2019, after the final of The iron Throne, Harington’s rep told E! News that the actor “decided to use this break in his schedule as an opportunity to spend time at a wellness retreat to work on some personal issues.”
