‘Game of Thrones’ Star Indira Varma Reveals She Has Coronavirus

March 19, 2020

Another "Game of Thrones" star has disclosed they’ve tested positive for coronavirus.

Indira Varma, who portrayed Ellaria Sand on the HBO series, revealed her diagnosis in an Instagram post on Wednesday.

Varna began by addressing the outbreak and how it has caused the London theater production she was working on alongside Emilia Clarke to close.

“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,” the actress captioned a trio of photos from the play, before announcing her health status. “I’m in bed with it and it’s not nice.”

While she didn’t elaborate further on her symptoms, the 46-year-old did offer some advice to her fans.

“Stay safe and healthy and be kind to your fellow people,” she signed off and included three heart emojis.

Two days earlier, Varma’s "GoT" co-star Kristofer Hivju, who played Tormund Giantsbane, opened up about his diagnosis.

"Greetings from Norway! Sorry to say that I, today, have tested positive for COVID19, Coronavirus. 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," wrote the 41-year-old actor.

Other celebrities who have tested positive for coronavirus include Idris Elba, NBA star Kevin Durant, “Quantum of Solace” actress Olga Kurylenko, and Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson.

Since announcing their diagnosis last week, Hanks and Wilson have since been discharged from the hospital and are recovering in a rented home in Australia.
