Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan has urged fans to stop tormenting the real-life owner of the house inhabited by Bryan Cranston’s Walter White on the show.
The house in Albuquerque, New Mexico used for exterior shots of the White family home has become a tourist attraction in recent years, but Gilligan has been informed that not all fans are behaving respectfully towards its real-life owner, a woman named Fran. Some fans have even tossed pizzas onto the house’s roof in a bid to recreate a famous scene from Season Three of the acclaimed US drama.
Speaking on a recent episode of the Better Call Saul Insider Podcast, Gilligan said: “Lately, we’re hearing from the owner that folks are wandering on to her property, and are being rude to her when she comes out and basically says ‘you’re on my property’.
“They are throwing pizzas on roofs and stuff like that,” Gilligan continued. “Let me tell you, there is nothing original or funny or cool about throwing a pizza on this lady’s roof. It is just not funny. It’s been done before. You are not the first.”
Jonathan Banks, who plays Mike Ehrmantraut on Breaking Bad and its spin-off series Better Call Saul, then added: “If I catch you doing it, I will hunt you down.”
Meanwhile, Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul – Jesse Pinkman on the award-winning drama – has recently revealed that he is keen to make an appearance on spin-off series Better Call Saul. Better Call Saul‘s first season began last month (February) on AMC in the US and Netflix in the UK and will consist of 10 episodes. AMC has already commissioned a second season comprising 13 episodes.
