Cranston, who also acted in the popular comedy series Malcolm in the Middle', is also appearing in one of the episodes.

Asked in an interview with The Guardian why he was in Chiswick he replied; "We’re shooting here in London. We have five episodes and I’m acting in one of the episodes. It’s an anthology series.

"This particular story is called Human Is and it really examines the simplicity of what is it that makes a human being. It’s really provocative, and evocative, and I think audiences will really like it. It will be on Channel 4 later this year."

61-year-old Cranston became a global star after portraying Walter White on the AMC crime drama series Breaking Bad, Hal on the Fox comedy series Malcolm in the Middle, and Dr. Tim Whatley in five episodes of the NBC comedy series Seinfeld.

His latest film Wakefield is a study of a man who vanishes, only to spy on his grieving family.

Cranston will be back in London later this year. He is to star in a stage adaptation of the 1976 film Network in November 2017, playing the character of Howard Beale. The American satirical film is about a fictional television network, UBS, and its struggle with poor ratings. The film starred Faye Dunaway, William Holden, Peter Finch, and Robert Duvall and won four Academy Awards.

The play will be directed by Ivo van Hove at the Royal National Theatre and Cranston says he is "super excited" about his forthcoming role.
