Game of Thrones actor Sam Coleman (Young Hodor) hospitalized after testing positive for COVID-19




The horrors of the COVID-19 pandemic don’t seem to end. The world has been suffering since the Red Wedding year 2020, and with the recent omicron variant on the rise, things are looking serious once again. We lost a lot of important people in the wretched year, but it doesn’t seem like the curse has loosened its grip yet. Game of Thrones actor Sam Coleman, who played the younger version of the gentle giant Hodor on the show, tested positive for coronavirus, and was hospitalized for quite some time. The 25-year-old was admitted to Conquest Hospital in Hastings on November 20 after first testing positive for Covid on November 14.

Confirming he received the AstraZeneca vaccine, Coleman posted the following day sharing his test results and wrote: “So today has been a ride…

“[I] tested positive last night, today I’ve gone through all the motions (temperature fluctuations, weakness, loss of taste, headaches, this darn cough etc) everything apart from the difficulty breathing bit.”

“Let’s hope it stays that way,” he concluded.

Unfortunately, his condition ended up progressing and he was hospitalized due to a lung infection.

‘About that positive test…’ he shared with his followers a few days later. ‘I’m in hospital with oxygen being pumped into my lungs.

‘Wish I could put a positive spin on it but it’s pretty s**t so whoops. Stay safe out there.’
