Bryan Cranston opens up about his brutal weight-loss regimen to prepare for his role in Stan’s Your Honor: ‘I lost 17 pounds’

Bryan Cranston has opened up about the challenging weight-loss regimen he undertook to prepare for his role in the gripping Stan series Your Honor.

The Breaking Bad star, 66, told the Today show’s Renee Bargh on Friday he shed seven kilos to play the challenging role of fallen judge Michael Desiato.

‘That’s the hardest part, under a nutritionist’s care, to lose 17 pounds. The more you do it, the more you realise it’s right for the character,’ he said.

Renee asked if his commitment to his craft meant he was hungry on set, especially at meal times.

‘Stop talking about food! They brought catering in and I was like, “I can’t even be around it.” I had to walk away,’ he replied.

Bryan explained his gloomy character initially ‘didn’t want to live’ after a string of family tragedies, and as a result let his appearance go, which meant Bryan grew a bushy beard and shed the kilos.

And the Australian streaming platform last week released a trailer for the thrilling series ahead of its season two premiere on Sunday.

In the sneak peek, Bryan’s character Michael Desiato has been called to bring down the largest crime organisation in New Orleans.
