I don't know about you but for me, "Breaking Bad" was the best show ever made! Each episode had me at the edge of my seat and the end credits started to roll, I couldn't help but want more. Kudos to the genius writers who came up with the series. And, of course, the exceptional actors who starred in it!
As an autograph hound who lives in LA, I've had the privilege of seeing said actors in real life. Most of the time, it was just when I'd pass by Hollywood and they'd be roaming around thinking that no one would notice them. I didn't approach them all that much to respect their privacy. But when it was announced that the series would end, I knew I just had to get their autographs. So I decided I'd go to the final season premiere with a bunch of posters and get them signed.
There was a bit of a melancholic feel at the event. I mean, everyone was still all smiles and posing for the camera, but now one could get over the fact that this was going to be the last season of such an amazing show. We, the fans, knew it, the stars knew it, everybody knew it. And while the energy was still extraordinary, one can't help but feel the air of sadness waft through. Nevertheless, my own sadness disappeared when I finally saw the cast and got to interact with them. Those are memories I'll cherish forever!
Out of all the cast members, it's not surprising that the two leads, Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, stood out to me the most. And it wasn't just because they were the leads. They really have this innate charisma that you can't help but gravitate towards. Even when another star was right in front of me, I couldn't help but glance to the side where these two men were standing. That was honestly the first time I felt that in all of my years hounding for autographs.
And when I finally got to meet them in person, they were just as awesome as I expected them to be. Bryan Cranston was (still is) a genuinely nice guy. He didn't have a hint of ego about him and you just felt that he was having a good time as you were. Oh, and so generous with fans too! He'd take selfies, hug, kiss, and sign anything the fans gave to him. Of course, he also signed my posters too! He was the only one out of all the cast members to sign them all!
Aaron Paul, on the other hand, was very dashing. I'm a straight man myself but damn, I understand what the ladies see in him! Even though he wasn't the tallest guy there, his confidence, his swag, and his sex appeal were off the charts. So much so that the girls around me were squealing like rats caught in a trap. But I don't blame them. Had I been a girl or gay, I probably would act just as crazy! I mean, when he signed my posters in front of me, I admit, I even questioned my sexuality right then and there, lol!
Here's to the legacy of "Breaking Bad" and the extraordinary actors it gave us! There will never be a TV show quite like it ever again!
