Daniel Craig has tested positive for COVID-19.
The 54-year-old actor has been starring in Macbeth on Broadway, but his positive test result has already led to two performances being cancelled.
The production’s Twitter account said: “Today’s matinee and evening performance of MACBETH are cancelled due to Daniel Craig just testing positive for COVID this afternoon.
“We apologize for the inconvenience this causes ticket holders, but the safety of our audiences, the cast and crew remains our top priority. All tickets for the cancelled performance will be refunded at the original point of purchase. Please check MacbethBroadway.com or @MacbethBway for updated info (sic)”
The play — which also stars Ruth Negga — was originally only due to run for 15 weeks, until July 10.

The production marks Craig’s first performance since he walked away from the role of James Bond in No Time to Die.
The actor quit the franchise after appearing in No Time to Die, having previously hinted at walking away after starring in 2015’s Spectre.
He shared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon back in 2020: “I needed a break, I’ll freely admit it, I just needed to get my head away from it for a while.
“Once I had, and we started talking about storylines and things we could do and where we could take it, I was like, ‘I’m in, let’s do one more and try to the finish the story.'”— BANG SHOWBIZ
