Theater Gone Wrong: Even Bryan Cranston Forgets His Lines Sometimes
Cranston recalls a flop sweat-inducing experience opposite Mark Harmon.
Before Bryan Cranston became Walter White — heck, before he was even Malcolm's dad — he had an experience onstage that he has not forgotten to this day. The Network star was understudying two roles in a play that also featured Mark Harmon, and he had had the opportunity to go on in both of them. And then, at one performance, he completely went up on his lines. The experience was harrowing in the moment, but he learned a valuable lesson.
