Bryan Cranston, the Emmy-winning actor, recently spoke about what it was like reprising his iconic role, Walter White from Breaking Bad in the prequel series Better Call Saul.

Back in April, it was revealed that at some point during the final season of Better Call Saul, Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul would make appearances as their beloved Breaking Bad characters, Walter White and Jesse Pinkman.

Currently, Walt and Jesse are yet to appear in Better Call Saul but there are only two more episodes left, which are set to air on the 11th and 18th of July, meaning we don’t have to wait too much longer to see Cranston and Paul’s cameos.

All details surrounding the cameos have been kept under tight wraps; we’re still not sure how long Walt and Jesse’s appearances will be, whether they’ll appear together – if so, why? Better Call Saul Season 6 is set in 2004, four years before Walt and Jesse teamed up to cook meth – and how they’ll fit into Better Call Saul’s plot.

However, Bryan Cranston recently spoke to Radio Times and while he didn’t give anything away about how (or why) Walt and Jesse appear in Better Call Saul, he did talk about what it was like to play Walt again – nine years after Breaking Bad ended – and how exciting it was to film the cameo in “secret”.

“It was [surreal]. Aaron Paul and I, we had to coordinate our schedules to make sure we were available when they were in production. So a year ago, April, is when we shot it. And because it was a separate section of us shooting the scene, I don’t know what actual episode it’s in. Because it wasn’t done in order.”

“We were flown into New Mexico secretly and they created this shroud of privacy – we were sent right away to an Airbnb house that we were not allowed to leave. There was all this stuff going on, it was exciting! But also a secret and we kept it secret for a year. And then when Better Call Saul premiered they announced it, and Aaron and I said, ‘Oh, well, I guess we can talk about it now!’”

Hopefully, the final two episodes of Better Call Saul meet the high expectations fans have and Walt and Jesse’s cameos do the Breaking Bad characters justice. But alas, only time will tell.
