Downcast Kit Harington pictured after checking into wellness centre

Kit Harington looked a little downcast as he was spotted for the first time since checking into a wellness centre.

The Game of Thrones star checked into a rehabilitation centre to be treated for stress and alcohol use after the hit HBO show ended.

The actor, 32, was photographed yesterday as he chatted to an unknown female companion as he walked across a public car park near the exclusive Privé-Swiss retreat he's staying at.

Kit was wearing grey skinny jeans, a black T-shirt and white trainers, as well as a flat cap.

He carried a large bag over his shoulder and kept one hand stuffed in his pocket.

The star, who played Jon Snow in the fantasy epic, kept a straight face as he was snapped by photographers, but looked a little sad as hung his head.

But he did raise a smile at one point, as he appeared to share a laugh with his female friend.

It was revealed earlier this week that Kit has checked into luxury Connecticut health retreat Privé-Swiss.

Kit has said he found filming the eighth and final series of the show "stressful", especially after finding out his character murdered Daenerys Targaryen in the final episode.

His representative said on Tuesday: "Kit has decided to utilize this break in his schedule as an opportunity to spend some time at a wellness retreat to work on some personal issues."

The statement did not give details of his issues.

The new pictures come after Kit was seen breaking down in tears in a heart-wrenching video as he bids farewell to Game of Thrones .

The star was seen getting emotional as he made a powerful speech to his co-stars and the crew as filming ended.

After filming his final scenes, Kit addressed the group, telling them: "I feel like my heart is breaking. I love this show."

Kit took a second to compose himself as he fought back tears, before he continued: "More than, I think, anything.

"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, and you have been just my family.

"I love you for it, and thank you so much."

The heart-wrenching moment was broadcast in two-hour documentary, Game of Thrones: The Last Watch.
