Actor Bryan Cranston is the latest
celebrity to join the Human Rights Campaign's (HRC) Americans for
Marriage Equality campaign.
In a video released Thursday, Cranston
introduces his wife Robin Dearden and daughter Taylor Dearden
Cranston. The couple met in 1984 on the set of the show Airwolf.
“We've been happily married for over
20 years,” Robin Dearden says, “and the idea that two men or two
women getting married could somehow harm or threaten our marriage is
“Gay and lesbian couples should have
every right to experience the joys of marriage and family that we
do,” says Bryan Cranston, who is best known for playing Hal in
Fox's sitcom Malcolm in the Middle and Walter White in AMC's
drama Breaking Bad.
“It's about love, plain and simple,”
Taylor Dearden Cranston adds. (The video is embedded in the right
