Bryan Cranston Breaks Down The Reason Behind The Success Of Breaking Bad

As reported by the media outlet Screenrant in 2023, Bryan Cranston spoke about one of the most significant projects of his acting career. The Argylle star broke down why Breaking Bad went on to become one of the most successful series on Netflix. Cranston mentioned that the audience could relate to the character of Walter White. He said-

“I think people related to this guy. They empathized with it, with him to have a man who is trying to really instill enthusiasm in his, in his science, to nothing but a sea of apathy with his students, to having to have a second job for his special needs son’s care. So, the teaching profession, the healthcare system, these were all part of it. And you felt for him, and he’s got terminal cancer. And this poor son of a gun is like oh, and then he and that was all by design, create the empathy.”

He further shared how people sympathized with Walter White despite knowing that he was into illegal stuff. He explained-

And then you…everybody was signed on and rooting for him. But then he does something illegal? Well, I’ll give him a pass. And something a little brutal, a little more, a little more. And Vince Gilligan wanted to see how long he can go and how far he can go away from that initial man, and still keep the allegiance from the audience. So it was a real test. And it’s never been done in the history of television, to have a series star change character within the course of the series. And so I was blown away by that prospect and wanted to be a part of it.”

With 62 episodes, Breaking Bad went on to become one of the greatest crime drama series of all time. The first episode was aired on January 20, 2008. With an IMDb rating of 9.5 out of 10, Breaking Bad can be streamed on Netflix.
