Bryan Cranston will move to Canada if Donald Trump is elected president

Bryan Cranston says he will pack up his things and head to Canada if Donald Trump is elected president.

“It wouldn’t be a vacation, I’d be an expatriate,” he said in a recent interview with The Bestseller Experiment podcast after it was suggested that he might enjoy a trip to Vancouver post-election. “I would definitely move! It’s not real to me that that would happen. I hope to God it won’t.”

Should Trump pull out a win over Hillary Clinton, the Emmy-winning Breaking Bad star and recent author might see some familiar new neighbors in the Great White North.

Miley Cyrus said in March that she’d “move out da country” following a Trump victory, and Girls star Lena Dunham also made a similar suggestion, saying she knows a “lovely place in Vancouver” that could be calling her name come Nov. 9.

Though Cranston still has to wait a week to see if he’ll be swapping apple pies for maple syrup, he did acknowledge that no matter the outcome, Trump will remain a fascinating fixture in American history.

“He’s such a tragic Shakespearean character,” he said. “There will be books written, movies made. I’m telling you, there will be theatrical productions about Donald Trump because of the anomaly that he presented.”
