Cranston and crew discuss the impact of the hit series.
Breaking Bad is arguably one of the best shows of all time. It has been a decade since Bryan Cranston erased any thought of him portraying the goofy father on Malcolm in the Middle and recreated himself as Walter White. The cast of Breaking Bad earned the cover of EW this month, and the team reunited to reminisce on the time they spent together making the critically acclaimed hit series.
Cranston, Aaron Paul, Bob Odenkirk, Anna Gunn, Giancarlo Esposito, Dean Norris, Betsy Brandt, Jonathan Banks, and RJ Mitte gathered for the first time in years and the meeting was emotional. “You can’t just move on," stated Cranston. "Something that was so indelible and meaningful in your life and you can’t, and I don’t want to. I want to hold on to those good memories of that gathering, both then and during our seven years together. So, it’s a bit melancholy, actually. Bittersweet.”
“I love these people,” Paul told EW. “I feel blessed to have shared this incredible experience that is Breaking Bad with each and every one of these people. I remember when we were shooting the first season, Dean and I were talking, he goes, ‘You know, in ten years, we’re going to look back and say, ‘Goddammit! I used to be a part of Breaking Bad!’ And now it’s crazy that 10 years has passed, and I am still constantly thinking that. It’s like, wow, how lucky we all are.” Check out a gallery of the reunite stars here.
