Bryan Cranston on Charles Manson: "I Was Within His Grasp" for Murder
Best known for portraying the terrifying Walter White on Breaking Bad, Bryan Cranston has shared a harrowing story of his encounter with a real-life villain.
 
The actor took to Twitter this afternoon (November 19) to recount a time when he came dangerously close to meeting Charles Manson. Cranston said that he and his cousin went horseback riding at the Spahn Ranch in 1968, where the "Manson family" infamously resided.
 
Cranston acknowledged that he was "within his grasp" just prior to the cult leader's notorious 1969 killing spree, and credits "luck" to keeping him safe from "the little man with crazy eyes whom the other hippies called Charlie."
 
Cranston would have been 12 or 13 at the time of the eerie encounter. Read his full description of the event below.
 
As previously reported, Manson died in prison on Sunday (November 19) of natural causes. He was 83.
