Bryan Cranston Height

"I learned long ago to focus on things you can control and don't even pay attention to things you don't."

~ Bryan Cranston

Great actor Bryan Cranston has appeared in many movies and TV series, but he is especially known for his portrayal of Walter White in the AMC crime drama series Breaking Bad.

In Breaking Bad, when Walt's (Cranston) missing posters are made, this was printed on it: "height: 5'11".

Perhaps that is why many websites on the internet describe Bryan Cranston as 5-feet-11 inches tall.

It appears Bryan is really that tall, as in Breaking Bad (especially in early episodes) Bryan looked like a decently tall man -- around 3 inches taller than a 5-feet-8 inches tall Aaron Paul, and taller even than the tall lady Anne Gunn (5'9½") -- at least when she was not in heels.

Though now in his mid-sixties, due to poor posture or other age-related issues, Mr. Cranston appears to be a bit shorter than he was.

The height of Bryan Cranston is

5'10½" or 179 cm

Height in prime was 5'11"
