Jason Momoa tested positive for Covid-19 and suggested he may have caught the virus at his film Dune’s London premiere.
The Hollywood star, 42, broke the news on Instagram – and confirmed he is isolating himself in the UK with his friend, pro skateboarder Erik Ellington.
“I was hit by Covid right after the premiere,” said the actor, who has been filming Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom in the UK since June.
He added: “There are a lot of people I have met in England. I have a lot of aloha from people, and who knows.
“Thank you for all your concerns and your love. “
The actor joked that he and his roommate Ellington “had fun” before showing a clip of Ellington walking through the house on a skateboard.
Momoa reportedly tested positive last week while filming the sequel to the Aquaman comic book franchise at Leavesden Studios in Hertfordshire.
A source told The Sun: “Jason is happily doing well and is now isolating himself after testing positive.
“But it’s a real headache for the film’s bosses, who are now worried about having to delay their tight filming schedule.
“Of course, the safety of everyone who works on the film is the most important thing and everyone is tested regularly.
“They’re hoping it’s a unique piece and they can get around Jason and continue filming the production.
“Everyone wishes him a speedy recovery and they can’t wait to see him back on set. “
Momoa stars in the sci-fi epic Dune, which is currently ranked second at the UK box office behind the latest James Bond film, No Time to Die.
Dune – starring Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya Coleman – has already become director Denis Villeneuve’s second highest grossing film in the UK since its October 21 release.
