A U.S. TV series filmed in Vancouver will continue on with production, even though two of its cast members have tested positive for COVID-19.
The Good Doctor, which stars Freddie Highmore as an extremely talented autistic doctor, began filming in Vancouver on September 2 and is slated to continue until May 28.
However, costars and married couple Richard Schiff and Sheila Kelley, who also play a couple on the show, have been reported to have received confirmation on November 3 that they have the coronavirus.
Both of the actors are quarantined at home in Vancouver. Schiff plays the president of the hospital that Highmore’s character works at while Kelley plays his office manager and wife.
Kelley stated on social media that they have found that their symptoms change frequently.
Despite the two actors not being on set, Highmore told media that the production will continue filming the latest season, which is about the pandemic.
Season 4 premiered on November 2.
In March, actor Daniel Dae Kim (Hawaii Five-0, Lost), who is the executive producer of The Good Doctor, become one of the first few Hollywood celebrities to test positive for the virus.
