After it was reported that Game of Thrones actor Kristofer Hivju tested positive for the COVID-19 virus, another costar from the show has come forward that they too have contracted the deadly disease. This time it is the actress Indira Varma.
The popular actress’s shocking announcement came out just two days after Kristofer revealed his diagnosis. Indira, who is best known for her role as the Dornish queen Ellaria Sand in the megahit series Game of Thrones, took to her social media account on Instagram to break the news. On Wednesday, the actress wrote,
“I’m in bed with it and it’s not nice. Stay safe and healthy and be kind to your fellow people.”

So sad our and so many other shows around the world have gone dark affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. We hope to be back soon and urge you all (and the govt) to support us when we do. Phoenix/ Seagull rising from the ashes. I’m in bed with it and it’s not nice. Stay safe and healthy and be kind to your fellow people.❤️💜❤️
The 46-year-old actor was recently seen working on play that is a modern take of Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull in London’s West End. She is not the only ‘GoT’ star set to perform in the play as Emilia Clarke, aka the ‘Mother of Dragons’, was also cast for the play.
Currently, the play has been put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic. So far, Emilia has not yet reported about her COVID-19 tests. We hope she is well and wish a speedy recovery for Indira Varma as well.
The coronavirus epidemic continues to sweep all around the world as more and more celebrities announce the dreadful news of testing positive for COVID-19. We urge people to stay indoors and wash their hands at all times. Stay posted for more updates.
