  • The actor had contracted the virus a while back and now fully recovered decided to donate plasma.
  • Cranston had mild symptoms such as headaches, loss of taste and smell.
  • The Hollywood star encourages everyone to hold in there and keep wearing the mask.

Walter White actor posted on his Instagram that he had been "one of the lucky ones" to survive the virus. Despite being strict with following protocol Cranston still contracted the virus, so he wants to encourage his fans to have a little more patience as they try and get through this. 

In the video the actor is seen at the UCLA Donation Center, donating plasma. Experts say in order to donate the person must have contracted the virus and have fully recovered. The person must wait at least 14 symptoms free before they donate.

Donations are important because scientists say that those who have tested positive for the virus could have antibodies that may help others

The center's website states: "You may have antibodies in your plasma that attack the virus. Your donated plasma could be used for compassionate treatment or as part of a scientific trial to determine definitively if this treatment works. It can also be used to support research efforts such as making tests to check immunity to the virus."
