The House of the Dragon, a Game of Thrones prequel, has been halted in the United Kingdom for two days due to an exposure to COVID-19 involving a Zone A member of the cast and crew.
Following the enormous popularity and success of Game of Thrones, HBO’s House of the Dragon will tell the story of House Targaryen.
The first look photographs for House of the Dragon were revealed in May. Of course, it piqued the interest of viewers who had been anticipating the show, which takes place 300 years before Game of Thrones. According to sources, the shoot has been halted for two days. In zone A, which is for cast and crew, there was a positive case of Covid-19. The shoot will begin after the necessary quarantine procedures have been followed.
“As part of the rigorous testing implemented for all production employees, a Zone A production member on House of the Dragon tested positive for COVID-19. In compliance with industry guidelines, the production member is in isolation, and close contacts will be required to quarantine,”, a statement from HBO.
After a two-day hiatus, production will resume on Wednesday. The cast includes Matt Smith as Prince Daemon Targaryen, Emma D’Arcy as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, Steve Toussaint as Lord Corlys Velaryon (also known as the Sea Snake), Olivia Cooke as Alicent Hightower, and Rhys Ifans as Otto Hightower.
House of the Dragon is a fantasy series based on George R.R. Martin’s novel Fire and Blood. House of the Dragon will tell the story of House Targaryen, from which the Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen, arose. From the Doom of Valyria, the Targaryens fled to the Seven Kingdoms and built their castle on Dragonstone. Years later, with the help of their dragons, Aegon Targaryen and his sisters reclaimed control of the Seven Kingdoms.
The showrunners will be Miguel Sapochnik and Ryan Condal, who will also serve as executive producers alongside Martin and Vince Gerardis.
