Game of Thrones star Indira Varma has confirmed she tested positive for coronavirus strain COVID-19.

The British actress told fans that she was bedridden due to the ailment, as she told fans that rehearsals of The Seagull - which she stars in with Emilia Clarke - were postponed amid the ongoing outbreak.

Sharing a selfie with her fellow cast members she took to Instagram to announce the news and wrote: “So sad our and so many other shows around the world have gone dark affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. We hope to be back soon and urge you all (and the Govt) to support us when we do. Phoenix/Seagull rising from the ashes.”

The 46-year-old actress was starring in the modern take of Anton Chekhov's play "The Seagull" in London's West End, alongside "Game of Thrones" alum Emilia Clarke. The play is on hold due to the pandemic.
