The actor best known for playing ‘Walter White’ on AMC’s ‘Breaking Bad,’ Bryan Cranston appeared on ‘Live with Kelly and Ryan’ as a guest and opened up about recovering COVID-19.
As might be remembered, In July, Cranston revealed that he contracted the virus and had mild symptoms including a slight headache and loss of taste and smell.
During the video interview the actor said he and his wife were very fortunate to have just mild symptoms and explained why he went public last month:
“When my wife and I had it very early on, the very first week that everything had shut down, I didn’t think that the world needed another celebrity saying, ‘Hey, I had it!’ so I just didn’t say anything and went about my way.”
Cranston also spoke over his plasma donation:
“I count my blessings that that was the extent of my sacrifice. I had the antibodies and infected anymore and so I thought now is the time to give plasma (…) I thought, ‘Okay, this is a good reason for me to now out myself and say I had COVID-19 and I was very fortunate’ and maybe if you had it and are fine now, maybe you can give plasma to those truly suffering.”
The Emmy Award-winning actor added at the end of the conversation:
”But my heart goes out to those people who have passed and those suffering. If any of you watching now had it and got through it… If you can consider giving plasma to your local blood bank, it will help many, many people.”
