Miles Teller‘s representative is countering reports the actor has coronavirus and is unvaccinated, after articles claimed his diagnosis led to the shutting down of filming for new TV series The Offer.
The War Dogs actor was rumoured to have contracted the virus, leading to the close of filming in July of the Paramount + limited series.
The Daily Mail reported a source informed the publication that the Whiplash actor was “not vaccinated” and had “brought the virus to the set.”
They added the actor “wouldn’t even get the test.”
In response, Teller’s report simply replied “your facts are incorrect.”
The Offer paused production after a member of the crew tested positive for the deadly virus.
In a statement, a representative for Paramount clarified, “out of an abundance of caution, we have temporarily halted production on The Offer due to the return of a positive coronavirus test result during routine testing.”
“We will continue to follow all safety protocols and monitor the situation closely,” they told Deadline at the time.
Production has since re-started, along with Teller returning to set.
The program depicts the events surrounding the production of the 1972 film The Godfather. Teller stars alongside stars Matthew Goode, Giovanni Ribisi, Colin Hanks and Juno Temple.
