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!”

The bad news is that arguably one of the greatest things to ever happen to New Mexico Film Production is coming to a close.
The good news (among much good news) is, there is still time to get your very own piece of the wonderment that is Breaking Bad, before cast and crew pack-up, move out of the studio lot and select locations around the Q, and ride off into the annuls of NMFilm history!
But perhaps the best news of all is that this now iconic piece of New Mexico will likely never die! Breaking Bad is and will remain one of the greatest scripted dramas the world of television (or any screen for that matter) has ever known – and Albuquerque will always have its place among the ever righteous cast and crew that has made it so!
With that, keep your eyes and ears open for the exciting things to come in the final days of filming right here in New Mexico. Bryan Cranston is making the rounds visiting local media outlets to say goodbye, promote the show and as always is working hard to help out and inspire in the community!
Here he is this morning on the air with JTD on the Peak, where among many things he shares that he WILL keep his NM home after the show wraps…additionally Bryan dishes just a bit on his feelings about the upcoming show finale.
Also this morning, Cranston and Steven Michael Quezada on the 94 Rock Morning Show >>
And finally, THIS BLOGETTE can exclusively report on some underground gossip that strongly suggests that there is more than just one ending to the epic series being filmed! IN FACT word on the wire is that there will be up to FOUR ultimate endings shot, with only the man himself, namely MR. VINCE GILLIGAN, knowing which will air on the historic night of the show’s close…
As it turns out, Breaking Bad may be more than just the best scripted drama on
cable television. The production is also going out with a bang of charitable heroism, on top of their consistent community activism!
NOT ONLY has the show spotlighted New Mexico as a brilliant place to film*, and highlighted the beauty of our landscapes (I’m looking at you
God Mr. Slovis), but throughout production the cast, crew and studio have quite literally stepped up to the plate in taking care of those in need in our area!
RIGHT NOW there is not one, but at least FOUR charitable endeavors aimed at helping the show’s backdrop and home base:
If this isn’t goodness for goodness sake, we don’t know what is! To bring a world to light, and then to light up that world is quite a feat.
We will miss you Breaking Bad – soon to wrap, but NEVER EVER to be forgotten. THANK YOU!
*Vince Gilligan has conveyed more than an affinity for the Land of Enchantment…to be continued…
As New Mexico braces to say goodbye to the global sensation created by “the best show on television”, YOU can have a piece, hell you can have a whole load, of New Mexico specific Breaking Bad swag!
Along with EXCLUSIVE items sent to OHI direct from the show’s studio, cast and crew have contributed ultra-limited edition items straight from the production!
