Biography

From 1977 to 1982, Cranston was married to writer Mickey Middleton. At 33, he married Robin Dearden, whom he had met on the set of the show Airwolf in 1984. 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.

Cranston played baseball when he was a student and remains a collector of baseball memorabilia and an avid fan of the Philadelphia Phillies and the Los Angeles Dodgers. When he accepted his third Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, Cranston thanked his wife and daughter, and told them he loves them "more than baseball". The family has a beach house in Ventura County, California, which Cranston designed. Cranston lived in Albuquerque, New Mexico when filming Breaking Bad. He is a co-owner of the independent theater Cinemas Palme d'Or in Palm Desert, California. He appeared with his family in a 2012 public service announcement, urging other Americans to support same-sex marriage.

In April 2014, Cranston presented at Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS Easter Bonnet Competition with Idina Menzel, Fran Drescher and Denzel Washington, after raising donations at his Broadway show All the Way.
