[India], June 23 (ANI): 'Breaking Bad' star Bryan Cranston, who has lent his voice to Wes Anderson's stop-motion animation film 'Isle of Dogs,' is talking about his exciting role.

He will voice the character of an alpha dog, Chief - a homeless stray dog who has no idea of what is his ultimate purpose. However, through the course of the film, Chief explores and understands what he was born to do and realises his destiny.

Talking about his character, Bryan said, "Enacting the role of a dog is no different than a human being. It is the frame of mind where you allow yourself to feel those traits and those idiosyncrasies of that character. We have always transferred our own human experiences and personalities onto our pets. So this was no different."

"A dog is capable of love, anger, fear and all those things that humans can feel. So it's just bringing those human traits to the surface," he added.

He also opened up about his experience of working with director Wes Anderson, "Working with him was absolutely incredible. He knows specifically what he wants but sometimes it's elusive. And he's very vulnerable in some cases. The only reason that actors come back to work with him is that of that nature. He's not dictatorial. But he's not a doormat either."

The flick will be released in theatres across India on July 6 by Fox Star Studios through Specialty Distribution Company Runaway, Luminosity Distribution. (ANI)
