"It’s a bit melancholy, actually. Bittersweet.”
The cast of Breaking Bad have reunited to mark the tenth anniversary of the acclaimed TV drama.
To mark the milestone, cast members including Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Bob Odenkirk and Dean Norris recounted their memories of making the cult show.
Along with creator Bob Odenkirk, they recounted their experiences of making the show – as well as the anticipation of joining forces once more.
Describing the reunion, Paul said: “I love these people.
“I feel blessed to have shared this incredible experience that is Breaking Bad with each and every one of these people. I remember when we were shooting the first season, Dean and I were talking, he goes, ‘You know, in ten years, we’re going to look back and say, ‘Goddammit! I used to be a part of Breaking Bad!’
“And now it’s crazy that 10 years has passed, and I am still constantly thinking that. It’s like, wow, how lucky we all are.”
As for Cranston, the reunion proved to be “bittersweet”.
There’s a suggestion in the question that it’s emotional — and you’re right,” Cranston told EntertainmentWeekly.
“You can’t just move on. Something that was so indelible and meaningful in your life and you can’t, and I don’t want to. I want to hold on to those good memories of that gathering, both then and during our seven years together. So, it’s a bit melancholy, actually. Bittersweet.”
