HBO Game Of Thrones

Filming for the prequel of Game of Thrones has been halted after a crew member tested positive for Covid-19.

House of the Dragon will be set 300 years before Game Of Thrones, focusing on the Targaryen family.

According to Deadline, a production member tested positive for the deadly virus and is currently self-isolating.

Production is set to resume in the UK on Wednesday.

Matt Smith will play Prince Daemon Targaryen in the prequel, the younger brother of King Viserys (played by Paddy Considine) and heir to the throne.

Olivia Cooke will play Alicent Hightower, while Emma D’Arcy will star as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen in the series – which is set for release in 2022.

It comes after season two of Bridgerton was also forced to halt production last week due to a Covid positive test.
