THE GOOD AND THE BAD NEWS
Cranston, 64, shared the news on Thursday saying that he had been “one of the lucky ones” to have survived the deadly virus.
In fact, Cranston calls himself a survivor of the coronavirus.
In his IG video, he shares a little about how he was feeling before getting tested. In addition, the actor records himself donating blood plasma at the UCLA Donation Center after his recovery.
