"My darkest period was when the show seemed to talk so much about Jon when he died and came back," Harington said. "I really did not like the focus of the entire series that came on Jon – even though this invalidated my problem as a weak link because it was about Jon."
Harington's character in the HBO fantasy series was killed in the season five finale, but returned. (HBO and CNN share the same parent.)
The viewer's reaction to the plot twist was intense.
"If you become the cliffhanger of a TV show and a TV show is likely to be at the peak of its performance, the focus on you is scary," Harington said.
The actor told Variety that it was not a very good time in my life when it all happened.
"I felt like I was the luckiest person in the world, when I actually felt very vulnerable," he said, "I had a shaky time in my life there ̵
Harington said it made him seek help.
" At that time, I started therapy and started talking to people, "he said," I was very unsure felt and did not speak to anyone. I felt very grateful for what I have, but I was incredibly worried that I could do anything. "
Harington compared this experience" When you're at a party and the party keeps getting better. Then you reach that point of the party you're at, the climax. "
" I do not know what more I could find from here. You know, there is not any more, "said Harington," that's it. And the "more" you can find is actually in the work and not in the joy that surrounds it. "
The eighth and final season of" Game of Thrones "will premiere on April 14.
