LOS ANGELES — Actor Bryan Cranston says he contracted and recovered from COVID-19 and has donated his plasma because it contains antibodies.
The actor best known for playing Walter White in AMC's “Breaking Bad” made the announcement in a video posted to Instagram on Thursday.
Cranston recorded himself at the UCLA Blood & Platelet Center in Los Angeles after making the plasma donation.
He says he was infected with the new coronavirus “quite early on” and had mild symptoms including a slight headache, tightness in his chest and loss of taste and smell.
Cranston urged his followers to wear a mask, wash their hands and practice social distancing.
