Hollywood star Bryan Cranston has tested positive for the corona virus. In a video, he gives the all-clear – and at the same time appeals to his fans.

“Breaking bad” star Bryan Cranston (64) has been infected with the corona virus. The Hollywood star announced this in a video message on Instagram. “I’m one of the lucky ones,” said Cranston. He had only slight complaints.

In a video with a white protective mask, Cranston shows up in a facility in Los Angeles donating blood plasma for corona research.

“Put on the damn masks, wash your hands and keep your distance,” the actor calls out to his fans. He was fed up with the pandemic, Cranston admits, but everyone would have to be patient for a while.

The actor became world famous as a drug cook with the television series “Breaking Bad”. In it he played the cancer-sick chemistry teacher Walter White, who wants to provide for his family and therefore produces crystal meth under the code name Heisenberg.
