Production has resumed on the Game of Thrones prequel, House of the Dragon, after a brief pause on filming after someone tested positive for COVID.
Filming stopped on Monday and was scheduled to resume on Wednesday, which it did, according to Entertainment Weekly. The production member who tested positive entered isolation, while close contacts also quarantined. After the two-day temporary shutdown, work is now continuing.
Set hundreds of years before Game of Thrones, House of the Dragon follows the drama involved the House Targaryen. “But as King Viserys (Paddy Considine) reaches the end of his reign, a brutal battle for succession kicks off between his beloved daughter Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen (Emma D’Arcy) and his second wife Queen Alicent Hightower (Olivia Cooke), who wants the throne for her sons,” reads a line from EW’s description of the show.
