Randall Park recently got some great and surprising news: He has been vaccinated against COVID-19.
The actor on Friday appeared on The Talk where he revealed he was vaccinated after taking part in a medical trial last year.
“I just found out that I’ve been vaccinated against COVID since September of last year,” he said.
Around that time, Park was talking to his friend and fellow actor (and medical doctor) Ken Jeong, who told him about a vaccine trial taking place that was looking for Asian candidates.
“And you know, I was thinking, ‘Oh that’s interesting.’ Then, I found out it was near my home, not far, and I was bored because it was the pandemic,” he said. “I was stuck in the house. And I was like, ‘Maybe I should donate my body to science.’ I figured it would be my way to, kind of, fight this thing happening throughout the world. So, I enlisted in the trial. And I didn’t know if I got the placebo or the actual vaccine, but I just found out yesterday that I got the vaccine.”
Park shared the news the same day he appeared on WandaVision on Disney+ reprising his role as FBI agent Jimmy Woo, a character he first played in Ant-Man and the Wasp.
