The Out of Blue star found himself "extremely lucky" as his symptoms were very mild in comparison to many who are experiencing much more serious symptoms "because this is a very dangerous virus".

He also mentioned that "loss of taste and smell" are the signs he noticed.

"I want everyone to realise that this can affect anyone. And even if you are not feeling sick or showing drastic symptoms - please take heed, stay safe, stay healthy and I hope to see everyone at the theater again soon," the Les Miserables star said.

Other celebrities that are currently battling with coronavirus are television host Andy Cohen, former The Bachelor star Colton Underwood, actor Daniel Dae Kim, music producer Andrew Watt, Game of Thrones actor Kristofer Hivju, Oblivion actor Olga Kurylenko, and actor Idris Elba.
