Los Angeles: Actor Jamie Dornan hopes the COVID-19 pandemic can heal divides and bring people together.
Dornan, whose father passed away after contracting the deadly virus, hopes the global health crisis will have the long-term impact of “unifying” divided communities, even though it doesn’t seem that way at the moment, Female First reported.
“We’ve all had some sort of testing experience, albeit some more than others. As bad as the personal impact on me has been, I’m hoping that something positive comes out of Covid in that this will, in our lifetime, probably be the one thing that worldwide we’ve all experienced together. It’s impacted us all in different ways, of course, but hopefully will have a unifying quality,” Dornan told Radio Times magazine.
“Early signs are that maybe it hasn’t, but you’d like to hope that it might bring us all closer, and end some of the nonsense tribalism that exists, based on nothing. But who’s to say? Time will tell,” he added.
