Bryan Cranston Education & Background:

Bryan Cranston was born on March 7th, 1956 in Canoga Park, California, the son of a radio actress and a Hollywood producer; Bryan was the second of three children Most sources list Cranston's birthplace as the San Fernando Valley, but Cranston has said that he was actually born in Hollywood. On his parents, Cranston said, “my mom and dad were both broken people, and because of that, they were incapacitated as far as parenting. They weren't capable, and we lost the house in a foreclosure. We were kicked out.” Cranston was raised partly by his grandparents on a farm, where he worked with poultry. In the Los Angeles area, he graduated from Canoga Park high School, and earned an Associate's Degree in police science from Los Angeles Valley College in 1976. He turned to acting shortly thereafter, first in regional theaters such as the Granada Theater in the San Fernando Valley; he had performed there as a youth, but due to mixed feelings on his parents' part about their son entering the profession, he did not remain a “child actor.” From the late 1980s on, he worked regularly, often in minor roles, since as his two-year role on the soap opera Loving, and in many brand-name advertisements like Fritos, Excedrin, Preparation H, and stints on Seinfeld, The King of Queens and Babylon 5. He starred in the quickly cancelled series Raising Miranda in 1988. As a voice artist, he has done English dubbing of various Japanese anime series, including Macross Plus and Armitage III Polymatrix. In theater, he had starring roles in The Taming of the Shrew, A Doll's House, Barefoot in the Park and many others during these years. His breakthrough role was as the father on Malcolm in the Middle, beginning in 2000, for which he landed three Emmy nominations. During the first decade of the 21st century, he had guest-starring roles on many high-profile shows, such as Family Guy, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and The X-Files, on which he met Vince Gilligan, who would later create Breaking Bad with Cranston in mind for the lead role of Walter White.
