LOS ANGELES: Bryan Cranston is nominated for the best actor honour at upcoming 88th Academy Awards for his performance in “Trumbo” but the “Breaking Bad” star says he never imagined he would get this recognition.
59-year-old actor witnessed his father, Joseph Louis ‘Joe’ Cranston, struggling to make a living in show business and admits he “was not raised” with the notion his profession would give him such recognition.
“I was not raised with the idea that you could achieve that. My dad was an actor, and he made his living getting a job here, getting a job there, sometimes doing fairly well and other times, not so well,” Bryan said.
Joe was never able to take his career to the next level and felt frustrated by the lack of recognition he craved.
Bryan said, “I think that his ego was inflated to the point where he felt that was what was important.”
