He is the one who masks.
Bryan Cranston has revealed that he contracted COVID-19 “a little while ago” — and he wants everyone to mask up and practice social distancing.
The decorated Emmy and Tony Award-winning actor perhaps best known for playing chemistry teacher turned meth dealer Walter White on the critically-acclaimed AMC series “Breaking Bad” said he became infected despite being “pretty strict in adhering to the protocols.”
“I contracted the virus. Yep,” he wrote in an Instagram
post on Thursday, adding “it sounds daunting now that over 150,000 Americans are dead because of it. I was one of the lucky ones. Mild symptoms.”
And he urged his 2.5 million followers to “keep wearing the damn mask, keep washing your hands, and stay socially distant.”
“We can prevail — but ONLY if we follow the rules together.”
What’s more, he revealed in a video accompanying his post that he recently donated his plasma to the UCLA Blood & Platelet Center, because his blood has the COVID-19 antibodies.
