Bryan Cranston Biography
Bryan Cranston Biography: Cranston, born in Hollywood on March 7, 1956, did not begin his acting career until after college. On the other hand, his father tried unsuccessfully to find such work before leaving Cranston and his siblings with their mother in 1967. Cranston’s father was away from his life until he was 22 when he and his brother Kyle reestablished communication (later, he would admit that he based much of his Breaking Bad performance on his father’s characteristics). Cranston described one fascinating incident from his childhood in various outlets much later: At the age of 12, while horseback riding at the now-infamous Spahn Ranch in California, he had a brief encounter with one Charles Manson, shortly before the crimes now known as the Manson murders took place.

From 1983 to 1985, he played a recurring role in the ABC serial opera Loving. In the late 1980s, he starred in the short-lived television series Raising Miranda, and his voice has been heard dubbing various Japanese media for American audiences, most popular the first season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers – earning him the distinction of being the namesake for one Billy Cranston, also known as the Blue Ranger.
