The unknown past of Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston as a minister of the Universal Church
It is valid to say that the life of the actor is not only acting, since in some cases, acting does not pay the bills and hardly for the pot. There are a lot of experiences of established actors who went through difficult times before they get that call or attend that casting call that changes their lives and catapults their career.
If acting was not enough, you had to work on something else, and so he did Bryan Carstonknown worldwide for his portrayal of Walter White in the acclaimed series breaking bad. Taking the character of the chemistry teacher turned drug producer, the other leading role of him had been Hal in Malcolm in the middlebut the other roles that he had in his career were secondary, in small productions and he even dabbled in dubbing and voice acting.
Having started his career in the 80s, at the age of 24, the great call came to him in 2008, at the age of 51, so in between he had to do more things than act, since that alone was not enough for him to live or give to feed his second wife, Robin Dearden, and their daughter Taylor. And among all the works he did, there was one that was quite picturesque.
Although he was a police officer, as his police science degree from Los Angeles Valley College allowed him to, he was also was ordained as a minister in the Universal Life Church (Universal Life Church, ULC) and even performed “about a dozen” weddings in Hollywood.
As is well known, these weddings are paid for at the moment and are not cheap (although the price of a wedding is relative for each couple), so cranston He did numbers and they closed him on all sides. “The minimum wage in 1974 was like $1.75,” he recalls to the official ULC website, adding: “I was earning $150 per wedding, so I thought, ‘absolutely, sign me up!’”
And that is not the most striking thing, since, since the one who pays has the last word, he also had to agree to the most diverse requests. “I did one for a couple on a plane, another dressed as Elvis, and I did one, once, in a bunny suit,” he confessed to the religious institution’s press.
Luckily, in the last years of the 2000s, the character that catapulted him to stardom and for which everyone knows him came to him, since that story that lasted until 2013 is still valid for those who saw it and others who begin to see her Perhaps, if requested and accepted, he could continue officiating weddings dressed as Walter White.
The most curious thing of all is that he is not the only celebrity with the faculties to do it, since artists like Adele, Cardi B, Benedict Cumberbatch, Lady Gaga and even “The Rock” Dwayne Johnson are ordered as ministers in this church. Can you imagine any of these celebrities as the priest of your wedding?
