Breaking Bad: And that’s a WRAP (sort of)

Posted by on March 19, 2013 | Comments Off on Breaking Bad: And that’s a WRAP (sort of)


Above, while walking the press line at the Tribute to Breaking Bad event held Saturday night at Albuquerque Studios in New Mexico, Bryan Cranston answered a wide array of inquiries ranging from his thoughts on New Mexico in general to this juicy tidbit on how he sees the journey of Walter White saying:

“My perspective on it is that every human being is fully capable of the wide spectrum of emotions, and even the meekest person among us is a dangerous person given the right set of circumstances and what happened to Walter White was just that. Certain, specific buttons were pushed at a very delicate fragile time in his life and he made decisions that he could not take back and he was on the road, he was on a spiral to hell.”

The Albuquerque Studios, Reelz Channel, YDI Tribute to Breaking Bad culminated in this meet & greet for contest winners and event sponsors, with select media and Albuquerque civic leaders in attendance. The cast mingled with the crowed, signed autographs and posed for photos with sponsors and winners alike. With sponsorship packages and ticket sales, organizers of the fundraiser for Youth Development Incorporated, were able to raise over $28,000 in just a few weeks time to benefit the local youth organization.

After the gang buster success of this, one of the many civic outreach events the production has undertaken in their six years at work here, there was another event held at an undisclosed location.

Though OHI has confirmed that Breaking Bad cameras are still rolling her in Albuquerque, at least for a few more hours, the closed door event turned out to be the show’s wrap party, where the tears and “bittersweet” sentiments that were already beginning to swell at the fundraiser flowed at full speed, as cast, crew, production staff, friends and family shared their parting words of reflection and gratitude.

In a speech addressing the crowed Bryan Cranston thanked AMC and Sony for having the courage to pick-up the show and said, “Even though Vince Gilligan didn’t set out to make a classic that’s exactly what happened. In years to come this show will stand the test of time and scrutiny.”

Telling everyone, “All of you here tonight can say proudly that we worked on breaking bad. Now it’s time to go, it’s time to wrap it up, fold-up our tents and move away but there’s one thing that will never leave us even though we’re leaving this experience and that is from here on for the rest of our lives we will be inexorably tied to each other as a one as a family and I for one am personally am overjoyed to have this opportunity to be w this family all of you, such fine human beings number one and artisans number 2 I love you all I will miss you all, God bless you and God bless you Mr. Vince Gilligan for giving us this opportunity!”

Hometown star Steven Michael Quezada said, “I’m very proud of New Mexico, I’m a New Mexican…the crews here, you have made us proud> We’re gonna do great things moving on in the future. I’d like to thank Mr. Vince Gillagan for giving us that, we are gonna learn from that and we’re gonna go forward and we’re gonna thrive and thank you Governor Martinez. Thank you for signing a bill that will help us…this cast here has changed New Mexico let’s learn from it and let’s move on, thank you very much.”

Anna Gunn too thanked AMC and Sony “for giving our little show about meth a home.” Then addressing her co-stars calling them, “the most generous gifted hilarious group of actors I have loved playing with you every minute and I have loved watching your brilliant work.”

And in a tremendous nod of support to those who crafted the show year after year, “Most of all I really just wanna pay homage to the most amazing crew top to bottom that I have ever worked with in my career. Everyday that I came to work I didn’t feel like I was coming to work, I felt like I was coming to make art, communally with a group of people that I adored and you all are artists. You are all crafts men and woman and you gave every ounce of yourselves with such passion and dedication through sandstorms and snowstorms and scorching heat and everything in between, and I was in awe of what you did and we really became a family.”

Lastly the native New Mexican added, “I have met some of the finest human beings and artists that I have ever come across in all my years working in this business and I feel so blessed because of that and I will be forever grateful for this experience so, Que Viva New Mexico and Que Viva Breaking Bad!”
