Paul: 'I never wanted Breaking Bad to end'

Aaron Paul has revealed that he has mixed feelings about Breaking Bad coming to an end.

The actor, who co-stars alongside Bryan Cranston in the acclaimed AMC series, said that though he is pleased with the series finale, he will miss working with the show's cast and crew.

He said in a Reddit AMA: "I gotta be honest. I never wanted Breaking Bad to end, simply because I'm a huge fan of the show and I didn't want to be unemployed.

"But after reading the final eight episodes and understanding where the writers are going with it, I'm so happy they ended it the way they did, and I think all of you will be happy as well. It's a dark, crazy ride to the final episode, but it is a fun one."

Paul also divulged that he was initially sceptical of Cranston's casting as Walter White, due to his previous work in the comedy Malcolm in the Middle.

He explained: "Hal was my favourite character on [Malcolm in the Middle]. So when I was auditioning for BB, I knew they were getting the goofy dad from Malcom in the Middle to play Walter White, which confused me.

"But I was also very excited at the chance to work with Bryan."

The final episodes of Breaking Bad air on Sunday nights on AMC, and are available on Netflix in Ireland.
