So who is Bryan Cranston’s wife? Here’s everything to know about Robin Dearden and her relationship with the actor.
She met her husband on the set of a TV show
The couple’s love story got its start on the set of the CBS series Airwolf around 1986. “It changed both of our lives,” Cranston told PEOPLE at the Palm Springs International Film Festival in 2016.
The actor was appearing on the show as an angry boyfriend who hijacks his girlfriend’s sorority reunion cruise, with Dearden portraying one of the sorority sisters being held hostage.
“He had a girlfriend and I had a boyfriend at the time,” Dearden explained. “But I thought that he was the funniest man that I had ever met. I said, ‘He’s kind of cute, he’s got a gun…’ ”
The timing was “serendipitous,” according to Cranston. “If we had been unencumbered at the time, she doesn’t think that we would have stayed together,” he said.
He continued: “Because she had a boyfriend and I had a girlfriend, we were able to flirt without the heavy sexual tension, but there was sexual tension, let me tell you! But not the heavy sexual tension, not the ‘faux pas’ sexual tension, but it was there.”
A year after filming, they ran into each other in an improv comedy class. Cranston said that they greeted each other with a kiss “as actors do,” but it lingered longer than a kiss would between casual friends.
“We were both like, ‘Wait that was too long, wasn’t it?!’ ” he recalled. “And that is really what happened.”
