Kit Harington has injured his ankle.

The news was first revealed on Monday (July 9) by the Game of Thrones Twitter account.

“Kit Harrington is recovering from a broken ankle and unfortunately will not be able to attend this year’s #SDCC” a post read, referring to Comic-Con, which takes place this week in San Diego.

A spokesperson for HBO later confirmed via The Hollywood Reporter that Harington’s injury will not affect the show’s production schedule.

Harington is the second person to drop out of the Game of Thrones panel at Comic-Con. Lena Headey was forced to withdraw due to a scheduling conflict.

Comic-Con International begins on Wednesday night (July 11) and continues through Sunday (July 15) at the San Diego Convention Centre. The Game of Thrones panel takes place on Friday (July 13).
