Harington and Leslie met on the set of Game of Thrones in 2012. Playing the bastard of Winterfell and the wild woman beyond the Wall, their fictional relationship turned into a love story that captured the attention of viewers. Outside of the series, the romance transcended and they began dating in real life. After keeping their relationship private for some time, they publicly confirmed their courtship in 2016 and have been a beloved couple by fans ever since.

Playing Jon Snow for almost a decade and being part of such a successful and globally acclaimed series can create a strong emotional connection to the character and the universe of the series.

Additionally, the intense level of pressure and expectations surrounding Game of Thrones and its massive cultural impact shaped a considerable emotional and mental toll on Harington. The transition into a new phase of her career could have been challenging as well, since she hasn’t had much of a leading role since then compared to Jon Snow. These combined factors may have contributed to her subsequent hospitalization at the end of the series.

News of a sequel series for the character was made public last year, however, there is still no full certainty that he will arrive at some point in the future. Game of Thrones fans are still quite hurt with the conclusion of the eighth season, something that The House of the Dragon (91%) is taking care of lulling with the powerful history of the Targaryen family many years before the birth of Daenerys and Jon.
