Game of Thrones The House Of The Dragon prequel has halted production after a member of the crew tested positive for Covid.
The upcoming fantasy series, slated to premiere in 2022, has halted filming for two days.
Metro.co.uk understands that members of staff are quarantined to comply with industry guidelines and close contacts will also be required to isolate. Production will resume on Wednesday.
It is also said that there is a rigorous testing carried out for all production staff.
This isn’t the first delay the film has faced, as in the days leading up to production, a cast member was stranded in the water in Cornwall on their way up the mountain and had to be rescued. The incident appears to have been resolved with no injuries.
