Award-winning actor Bryan Cranston – best known for his TV role on long-running AMC hit crime drama Breaking Bad – will visit RAF Mildenhall for a “meet and greet” appearance on Satuday, 29 July - organized by the USO.
His precise schedule and locations while visiting RAF Mildenhall are yet to be announced.
Erika Sanchez, Bob Hope Community Center Programmer says, “We’re all really excited to welcome Bryan Cranston to the base. In season three of his series, “Breaking Bad”, the catch phrase was “La familia es todo”, meaning family is everything. Let’s all come out to see him and show just how awesome our RAF Mildenhall family really is!”
Cranston won four Primetime Emmy Awards (2008-2010 and 2014) for his portrayal of chemistry teacher Walter White who turns to unlawful means and an alternative criminal identity as “Heisenberg” to provide for his family when he is diagnosed with terminal cancer.
He is also well known for his role of Hal, the eccentric father in the popular Fox family comedy series Malcolm in the Middle, which he played for seven seasons from 2000-2006. Family film audiences will have heard his contributions to 2016’s Kung Fu Panda 3 and 2017’s Power Rangers in which he provided, respectively, the voices of Li’s biological father Po and mentor of Zordon. Cranston has also appeared in a variety acclaimed films, including Saving Private Ryan (1998), Little Miss Sunshine (2006), Drive (2011) and Argo (2012).
For more mature audiences, the Hollywood, California native was nominated for an Oscar in 2016 for his portrayal of screenwriter Dalton Trumbo in the film Trumbo.
Also a star of the stage, Cranston won acclaim for playing President Lyndon B. Johnson in the 2014 Broadway play, All the Way, a role he repeated on TV for HBO.
