Walter White Of Breaking Bad played by Bryan Cranston has to be one of the iconic characters ever written in World Television. Even though he is evil, the character has been written in such a detailed way that you feel for him.
As you start watching Breaking Bad, Walter White is a typical Chemistry professor. Despite having potential, he is struggling to make his ends meet. He is doing two jobs to feed his family. His life starts taking a totally new shape when he gets diagnosed with cancer. To keep enough savings for his family, Walter White becomes a meth cook. And that’s when his character starts showing its different layers.
From good to turning evil, Walter White goes through so much and the writers have done a brilliant job in writing his character. But do you know? the creator of Breaking Bad, Vince Gilligan had to be cautious in front of Bryan Cranston especially before calling him evil.
According to IMDB, as the show progressed, Vince had to stop calling Walter White evil in front of Bryan because it was hurting Bryan‘s feelings. Well, it’s tough to play a negative character because somewhere down the line you start sympathising with it way too much. If we as an audience felt confused about Walter White’s character shades so many times, how difficult it would’ve been for Bryan! We can only try to imagine that! Isn’t it?
