The ‘Game of Thrones’ actor Kristofer Hivju, who played the role of Tormund, has tested positive for the new coronavirus and is doing well, the Norwegian said in an Instagram post.
The 41-year-old known for his fiery red hair and beard said he and his family were in self-isolation at home.
“We are in good health — I only have mild symptoms of a cold,” he wrote in a message accompanied by a photograph of him with his smiling wife, Gry Molvaer Hivju.
The actor, whose major breakthrough came with the hit series, took the opportunity to remind his followers of good habits to practice in coronavirus times: wash hands, keep a social distance of 1.5 meters, and respect quarantine rules, among other things.
Before signing off, Hivju shared important information with his followers, especially on how they can stay up-to-date with the latest COVID-19 developments.
“Please visit your country’s Center for Disease Control’s website,” he explained. “And follow the regulations for staying safe and protecting not just yourselves, but our entire community, and especially those at risk like the elderly and people with pre-existing conditions.”
