The Breaking Bad Connection
Breaking Bad, which first aired in 2008, quickly became one of the most popular TV dramas of all time. The show follows the story of high school chemistry teacher Walter White, who becomes a methamphetamine manufacturer after being diagnosed with cancer. Through his partnership with former student Jesse Pinkman, White becomes embroiled in the criminal underworld, leading to a tragic and unforgettable finale.
Paul’s portrayal of Pinkman won widespread acclaim and earned him three Emmy Awards and two Critics’ Choice Television Awards. Since Breaking Bad ended in 2013, the actor has appeared in several films and TV shows, including the upcoming Hulu series The Path.
