"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."

Harington has worked on the series for almost 10 years, starting filming when he was 23 years of age.

The recently aired Game of Thrones documentary entitled The Last Watch, showed an emotional scene that saw Harington bid farewell to his co-stars on the hit show.

"I feel like my heart is breaking. I love this show, more than, I think, anything," he said.

"It has never been a job for me. It's been my life, and this will always be the greatest thing I'll ever do and be a part of.
