'Breaking Bad' Death Scene Got Way Too Personal for Bryan Cranston

Actor Bryan Cranston revisited one of the most shocking Breaking Bad deaths on Tuesday during a discussion about TV psychopaths at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City.

In the session, titled “Psychos We Love,” Cranston dug deep to describe his thought process while shooting the iconic deadly scene from Season 2, Episode 12 - “Phoenix”:

"There was a lot of discussion about that and how it would come about. And I had a lot of thought about that. I thought, ‘How I would want that scene conveyed’ and then just let it go. I first wanted to respond in a humane way: a person was choking to death, so to stop it the impulse was to help. And then he stops himself because he realizes this is the same person who was just blackmailing him and threatening to expose his whole enterprise and everyone’s life would be turned upside down …

But then I look at her again and I said, ‘She’s just a girl — she could be my daughter,’ so you have an impulse again to do something. But then I think, ‘But she got Jesse on heroin and she’s going to kill that boy who I have an affinity for.’ So he’s going back and forth trying to make sense of this whole experience.”

MY GRANDMA GOT ALL A’S IN “ETIQUETTE” (YES THAT WAS AN ACTUAL CLASS IN HER HIGH SCHOOL) AND SHE TOLD ME, “DEAR,” SHE SAID,
“YOU NEVER CROSS YOUR LEGS, YOU CROSS YOUR ANKLES. BUT THE GREAT THING ABOUT YOU LIVING IN THIS GENERATION IS YOU DON’T HAVE TO FOLLOW MY GENERATION’S RULES. SIT THE WAY YOU WANT. IF SOMEONE LOOKS UP YOUR SKIRT, JUST TELL THEM YOUR AUNT MARY WILL KILL THEM.”WHICH IS TRUE
MY AUNT MARY HAD A SWITCHBLADE IN A SPECIAL POCKET OF HER NIGHTGOWN UNTIL THE DAY SHE DIED
the moral of this story is
1. Sit the way you want.
2. My great aunt Mary was a fucking badass.
