Talking about Breaking Bad and reprising Jesse Pinkman in Better Call Saul, Aaron Paul in a chat with THR said, “It’s kinda like reconnecting with a very familiar friend. You can be away from that friend for some time, but when you are back in each other’s company, it’s like no time has passed. We all know our characters so well having played them for years, so it felt good. I love Pinkman. He will always have a special place inside of me, but I can confidently say that [Better Call Saul] was the last time we’re going to see Pinkman. So it was a nice farewell”
The actor has already reprised Jesse in a few places and most recently in Better Call Saul. He also confirmed that he will never be coming back now and is optimistic about the decision. “It was such a fun ride. When we were finishing up Breaking Bad, Michael Slovis, our incredible DP, gave us all this really beautiful wrap gift and a note with a Dr. Suess quote that said, ‘Don’t cry because it’s over; smile because it happened.’ So I’m holding on to that,” he said.
