Personal life, husband actor Bryan Cranston

Robin was known to be an American actress and wife of famous actor Bryan Cranston. As they are both in the field of industry, they met while working with the TV series “Airwolf” in 1986. In the said series, Bryan played a villain’s role while Robin was held by him as a hostage. Bryan had scenes where he had to hijack a cruise where Robin was, and even point a gun to her head.

While being together on the set, they had attractions and flirted a lot with one another, but at that time both of them had partners, so when the shooting ended, they went on separate ways.

A year passed, then after their break-up with their former partners, they had the chance to meet again, and when a different kind of romance began. In an interview with “People”, Bryan said that having their former partners at the time he and Robin met helped to strengthen their relationship, ‘I think it was serendipitous, because, as Robin says, if we had been unencumbered at the time and started dating, she doesn’t think that we would have stayed together,” he said.

“But because she had a boyfriend and I had a girlfriend, we were able to flirt without the heavy sexual tension, but there was sexual tension, let me tell you! But not the heavy sexual tension, not the ‘faux pas’ sexual tension, but it was there.”

The couple had been dating for a while, but when the time came that Bryan thought of proposing to Robin, he was nervous and couldn’t utter his feelings in front of her. So instead of saying the magical words, “will you marry me?”, he just invited Robin to take a bath together! At that time, both of them were positioned in the same direction so Bryan could propose without looking into Robin’s face.
