Actor Bryan Cranston, best known for his Emmy Award-winning portrayal of the lead character Walter White in the television crime drama “Breaking Bad,” has recovered from COVID-19 and has donated his blood to assist treatment of others and research for finding a cure for the affliction.

“I was one of the lucky ones,” the 64-year-old Cranston wrote in an Instagram post along with posting a video. “Mild symptoms. I count my blessings and urge you to keep wearing the damn mask, keep washing your hands, and stay socially distant.”
In the video, Cranston said he contracted the virus “a little while ago” but gave no details.

"I was pretty strict in adhering to the protocols and still... I contracted the virus," he wrote.

The two minute and 34 second video is largely of Cranston donating his blood at the UCLA Blood & Platelet Center. The process takes about an hour he said, which he used to watch the 1957 film "A Face in the Crowd" with Patricia Neal, Walter Matthau and Andy Griffith.

Cranston, who also has starred in films and won two Tony Awards for his acting on Broadway, won four Emmys for his portrayal of White, a high school chemistry teacher diagnosed with lung cancer who joins with a former fellow student to manufacture methamphetamine, or crystal meth, to assure his family’s financial well-being after he dies.
