Kristofer Hivju a.k.a Tormund of Game of Thrones tests positive for Coronavirus

Coronavirus has been wreaking havoc throughout the world. The virus has claimed many lives so far and there is no sign of it slowing down anytime soon. Even the rich and famous are not untouched by its impact. Likes of Tom Hanks, Idris Elba have already tested positive for the disease and now we have the latest entrant in the list. Kristofer Hivju who played the role of Tormund in Game of Thrones has now tested positive for Coronavirus.

Hivju took to his Instagram and announced the unfortunate news of him having tested positive for Coronavirus. He wrote:

“My (family) and I are self-isolating at home for as long as it takes. We are in good health – I only have mild symptoms of a cold. There are people at higher risk for who this virus might be a devastating diagnosis, so I urge all of you to be extremely careful; wash your hands, keep 1,5 meters distance from others, go in quarantine; just do everything you can to stop the virus from spreading. Together we can fight this virus and avert a crisis at our hospitals. Please take care of each other, keep your distance, and stay healthy!”

It’s so disturbing to see millions of people getting affected by the virus. We wish a speedy recovery to Hivju and hope his family stays safe.

On the work front, Hivju had recently landed a role in the second season of The Witcher. We hope he gets back to his best and we can see him what he does best, soon! Talk to us in the comments below.

Netflix’s The Sandman releases first look at Gwendoline Christie’s Lucifer: Queen of Hell

The TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman is one of DC’s most highly anticipated projects. The Netflix series garnered quite some attention, as it includes an ensemble of highly talented casts, including Game of Thrones alums. Gwendoline Christie, who played Brienne of Tarth in the fantasy series, will play a gender-swapped version of Lucifer in the show. And she is highly excited about it. Netflix has finally released a first look at Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie on a new poster of the drama series The Sandman.

Netflix’s newest DC series The Sandman provides the first look at Gwendoline Christie as the Queen of Hell, a female version of Lucifer.

At Saturday’s virtual DC FanDome event, viewers got a glimpse at the Game of Thrones alum as the series’ Lucifer, the ruler of Hell. The first look images see Christie donning dark attire and a pair of ominous-looking wings.

Netflix’s newest DC series The Sandman provides the first look at Gwendoline Christie as the Queen of Hell, a female version of Lucifer.

Based on the popular comic book series, the series is described as a “rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama and legend are seamlessly interwoven.” The Sandman follows the people and places affected by Morpheus, the Dream King, as he tries to fix all the cosmic and human mistakes he’s made during his vast existence.

House of The Dragon: Filming period in Caceres extended as an important crew member tests positive for COVID-19 on the last day of schedule

House of The Dragon: Filming period in Caceres extended as an important crew member tests positive for COVID-19 on the last day of schedule

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon was progressing with its filming with a swift pace so far, until recently. The production has come to a sudden halt as one of the important crew members has tested positive for COVID-19 on the last day of shoot in Caceres, forcing the team to extend their stay.

According to the local newspaper Hoy, one of the main members of the recording team, who was responsible for filming a lot of crucial scenes, contracted the virus and was immediately quarantined.

House of The Dragon has faced similar situations before in the past, when the shoot had to be postponed for a few days due to a positive covid case. Hopefully, they will recover from the jolt soon, and continue with their shoot.

This might cause some delay in the filming of the Game of Thrones prequel in Monsanto, where the shooting is supposed to take place from 26th October.

When do you think the production will be back on track? Talk to us in the comments below!
