‘Breaking Bad’ star Bryan Cranston has been talking about the final episodes quite a bit lately but haven’t we all? For me it’s all I can talk about. Part of me is excited to see how it’s all going to wrap up but the other part of me is quite sad that it’s all coming to an end.
Cranston who plays ‘Walter White’, a Chemistry teacher who turns to a life of drug production when he finds out he has terminal lung cancer and wants to leave money behind for his family has spoken about the final episodes.
‘Breaking Bad’ draws to a close in two weeks, we have two episodes left and then it’s all over – well except for Saul Goodman who is getting his own spinoff show. The show, while not much is known looks set to show Saul Goodman (played by Bob Odenkirk) before he knew Walt in Breaking Bad.
Bryan Cranston has spoken again about the final episodes with The Radio Times and has said that the ending is ‘unapologetic and exciting’.
Cranston also spoke about showrunner Vince Gilligan and said that he should be very happy with the show’s finale.
“It’s exactly what he had hoped for,” Cranston told The Radio Times.
“And my hope was that he would be very satisfied with what he’s done. And he is. The ending of Breaking Bad is very unapologetic and exciting. It’s a roller coaster ride.”
The Radio Times also asked at what point Cranston was able to recognise with the show that he was involved in something special:
“I knew we had a good script and a great story. I just didn’t know how it was going to play or if anybody would feel a sense of sympathy and pulling for this character despite his actions.”
‘When I saw the pilot I realized that this was special. But then again, I’ve been in the business for a long time and you need to protect yourself.”
Cranston continued: “You celebrate that. If it goes beyond that and they want to try to make this a series, you still need a tremendous amount of luck.”
“We did get the luck and the support from our studio Sony and our network AMC. Without that, I don’t think we’d be talking right now.”
Star of the show Bryan Cranston also pondered as to whether or not he was sad that the show was coming to an end: “You go through a range of emotions.”
“I’m not really sad because I had this opportunity, which not many actors can say they worked on one of the greatest shows in the history of the medium. I really think it is.”
It has also emerged that the final two episodes of ‘Breaking Bad’ have been extended by 15 minutes each.
