Cranston’s dark side is not just a movie script

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TUESDAY EXTRA -

Bad star Bryan Cranston can tap into his char­ac­ter’s dark his­tory in the hit drama, be­cause he knows how easy it is for happy, nor­mal peo­ple to snap and do very bad things. The ac­tor (pic­tured) plays a sci­ence teacher who be­comes a metham­phetamine dealer and killer on the show, and he ad­mits he didn’t have to dig too deep to find Wal­ter White. He’s tells Men’s Jour­nal mag­a­zine he once had a drug-ad­dled girl­friend he briefly en­vi­sioned mur­der­ing af­ter she re­fused to ac­cept their re­la­tion­ship was over. ‘‘I had an out-of-body ex­pe­ri­ence and at that mo­ment, I re­alised that, given the right cir­cum­stances, I was ca­pa­ble of do­ing very bad things. Ev­ery­one is. It was the most amaz­ing, un­com­fort­able ex­pe­ri­ence of my life,’’ Cranston says.
