Bryan Cranston Biography

Bryan Cranston won three consecutive Emmy awards in 2008-10 for his portrayal of Walter White, a terminally ill chemistry teacher who turns to crime on the cable television series Breaking Bad. Bryan Cranston grew up in a family of actors in the San Fernando Valley of California and earned a two-year degree in police science from Los Angeles Valley College in 1976. He turned to acting a few years later, and spent nearly 20 years as a working TV and commercial actor,including a two-year stint on the soap opera Loving (1983-85). He finally hit it big as Hal,Frankie Muniz's hapless dad on Malcolm in the Middle. He played the role for seven seasons (2000-06) and his comedy chops brought three Emmy nominations (in 2002, 2003 and 2006). He popped up as Lucifer in the cable mini-series Fallen in 2007, and the following year he was cast as the lead in Breaking Bad, playing a mild-mannered chemistry teacher who goes off the rails after being diagnosed with terminal cancer. The role won Cranston three consecutive Emmys for lead actor in a drama, in 2008, 2009 and 2010 (his co-star, Aaron Paul, also won an Emmy in 2010). As if to make up for all those years of infrequent work, Cranston then made himself into a ubiquitous character actor in films: Since 2010 he's appeared in at least a dozen films, includingThe Lincoln Lawyer(2011, starringMatthew McConaughey),Drive(2011, starring Ryan Gosling),Contagion(2011, directed by Steven Soderbergh), John Carter (2012), Rock of Ages (2012, opposite Catherine Zeta-Jones), Total Recall (2012, starring Colin Farrell) and Argo (2012, starring Ben Affleck).

Early life
Cranston was born and raised in Canoga Park, California,the son of Audrey Peggy Sell, a radio actress, and Joseph Louis "Joe" Cranston, an actor and former amateur boxer.He is the second of their three children. He is of Austrian, German, and Irish ancestry on his father's side, while his maternal grandparents were immigrants from Germany.He has stated that his parents were "broken people" and that they were "incapacitated as far as parenting", causing the family to lose their house in a foreclosure.

Cranston's father held many jobs before deciding to become an actor, but did not secure enough roles to provide for his family. He eventually walked out on the family when Cranston was 11 years old, and Cranston did not see him again until a decade later when Cranston and his brother decided to track their father down.[4] Cranston has claimed that he based his portrayal of Walter White on his own father, who had a slumped posture "like the weight of the world was on his shoulders".Cranston was raised partly by his grandparents,living on their farm and working with poultry.He graduated from Canoga Park High School, and earned an associate degree in police science from Los Angeles Valley College in 1976.

Career
After college, Cranston began his acting career in local and regional theaters, getting his start at the Granada Theater in the San Fernando Valley. He had previously performed as a youth, but his show business parents had mixed feelings about their son being involved in the profession, so he did not continue until years later.He started working regularly in the late 1980s, mostly doing minor roles and advertisements. His voice acting includes English dubbing of Japanese anime (under the pseudonym Lee Stone),including Royal Space Force: The Wings of Honnamise, Macross Plus, and Armitage III: Poly-Matrix. He was an original cast member of the ABC soap opera Loving, where he played Douglas Donovan from 1983 to 1985.Cranston also starred in the short-lived series Raising Miranda in 1988. He portrayed astronauts Buzz Aldrin in the HBO series From the Earth to the Moon and Gus Grissom in the film That Thing You Do!. In 1998, he appeared in Steven Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan, as the colonel who insists that Private Ryan be saved.

He was playing the villain of the week, and she played the hostage he held at gunpoint. Their daughter, Taylor Dearden Cranston (born 1993), is a theatre studies student at the University of Southern California and played an extra in the Breaking Bad episode "No Mas", directed by her father.
