Bryan Cranston has been playing the character Walter White in the television series Breaking Bad since day one and, with the show coming to an end later this year, Bryan has been talking about the shows finale. Bryan says that it is not going to be pretty and that things are going to get bad for Walter.
Cranston explained, "There's nothing good, there's not going to be redemption. It's going downhill - it's ugly. We're not going to take a nice note up - we're Breaking Bad! It's going to be bad. But I don't ask what's happening, I don't know how it's going to end, we have eight more episodes to shoot before we're done and I have no idea how it's going to go."
Bryan then went on to talk about the joy of working on an AMC show, as he feels that they have the right idea about the shows that they make. Bryan says that AMC will only take on board shows and ideas that people do not expect to be able to take place, which is why they have such good writers.
He added, "There's hundreds of channels and networks and they need to be able to have their own identity. So in the States, AMC has this credo that if it can be shown on a broadcast network, then they don't even want to hear it. It's, 'We want the things that you thought couldn't be done', and that is like catnip to a writer."
You can catch Bryan Cranston playing out his remaining days as Walter White, when Breaking Bad season five returns to AMC on July 17.
