Speaking to PEOPLE, Kit’s rep said that the star had chosen to “utilise this break in his schedule as an opportunity to spend some time at a wellness retreat to work on some personal issues.”
A source informed E! News that the end of Game of Thrones had caused Kit – who is married to his former co-star Rose Leslie - great sadness.
"He has felt lost since the show ended. It was his life for so long and the realisation that it is over has caused a lot of stress and despair," the insider explained.
Having starred in the HBO series for a decade, Kit has been open about what an important part of his life it has been.
“It was formative years for everyone,” he previously told PEOPLE. “I started at 22 and ended at 32 and those are amazing formative years. If you’re Peter Dinklage, you started at 35. It defines that decade of your life, and that will probably the most bizarre decade of your life.”
