Kit said to SiriusXM’s Jess Cagle, “I went through kind of some mental health difficulties after Thrones and during the end of Thrones, to be honest. And I think it was directly to do with the nature of the show and what I’ve been doing for years.”

Kit added, “I think I took as a, sort of a break after Thrones where, so I don’t want to work for a year. I want to really kind of concentrate on myself. I think I’m really, I’m really happy I did that. And then, so coming back to work and deciding what to take and what to choose, and, you know, you can, you couldn’t predict the pandemic. So just when I was wanting to come back to work, the pandemic hit.
