#Covid-19: Game of Thrones' star Kristofer Hivju says that he has fully recovered from the Coronavirus

Tormund was, hands down, our ever favourite Game of Thrones character.

Yes, in the first season we were partial to the noble Ned. And we admired the valiant Rob and John before he got boring. And there were phases when we were rooting for Daenerys and Tyrion and Arya. And, of course, we fell for Jamie's charms when those frosted tips faded a bit.

But Tormund Giantsbane, with his wild eyes and cracking sense of humour was the one character that we absolutely adored across the seasons. Sure we love a redhead.

So, we were very relieved to see the news that actor Kristofer Hivju, who plays the literally larger than life character, has recovered from Coronavirus.

On March 16, the Norwegian actor had posted to his Instagram that he and his family had tested positive for the Covid-19. However, the 41-year-old wrote that the effects of the virus were thankfully mild.

"Sorry to say that I, today, have tested positive for COVID19, Corona virus. My familiy and I are self-isolating at home for as long as it takes. We are in good health - I only have mild symptoms of a cold."

Now, three weeks later, Kristofer has posted an update saying that, after spending time in quarantine, he has now recovered. He also encouraged the rest of us to keep taking the necessary precautions to protect both ourselves and our loved ones from the disease.

The actor wrote on Instagram:

Thanks the old gods and the new ones for that – we couldn't deal with a world, real or fictional, that didn't have Tormund in it.
