LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Emmy-winning ‘Breaking Bad’ star Bryan Cranston revealed on Thursday that he has recovered from mild symptoms of COVID-19 and donated his plasma in hopes that his antibodies would help other people with the disease.
Wearing a face mask, Cranston revealed the news in an Instagram video in which he documented the donation process at a blood and plasma center run by the University of California, Los Angeles.
Cranston said he experienced mild symptoms, including a mild headache, tightness in his chest and loss of his sense of taste and smell.
“I was one of the lucky ones,” Cranston wrote. “I count my blessings and I urge you to keep wearing that damn mask, washing your hands and staying socially distant.
Cranston won multiple Emmy Awards for his role as a chemistry teacher in the production of methamphetamine in the “Breaking Bad” television series from 2008 to 2013.
