Kristofer Hivju has announced that he and his wife have recovered from the coronavirus.
Hivju was among the first celebrities who announced that they had been diagnosed with COVID-19, and it seems his wife contracted the virus shortly after he did.
The bearded actor is known for playing Tormund Giantsbane, one of the Wildlings in HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’. He later becomes a close ally of Jon Snow in the series and joins in the fight against the Night King.
Hivju excitedly took to his Instagram page to reveal that after weeks of quarantine, he and his wife are now safe and sound.
The actor said that they were lucky to have mild symptoms and sent out condolences to countries where the virus has hit harder, and to those who have lost their loved ones to the pandemic.
He finally thanked fans for their support and reminded them of the need to stay vigilant, wash their hands, keep their distance and take care of each other.
