A: You truly have made me become such a better actor, and I truly believe a better person. So thank you, Bryan.B: (…)That’s Aaron Paul. He is a man who always understands the blessings in life and how lucky we are, and he is a phenomenal actor. He is a person who is always willing to do the extra work, always willing to be there for you, to give a 100%, even if he’s off camera. He’s always there for you and you’ve grown so much, too. But I would say this, as good as you are an actor, you’re an even better person. You’re my friend for life, that will never change. I love you, God bless you… I’m gonna miss you.
It’s days like today that remind me, life is extremely fragile and we need to appreciate every single second and never forget how lucky we are to simply exist. Thank you Samantha Marq for capturing in a single frame the true essence that lives and breathes through Lauren and I on a daily basis. Words of advice to everyone that happens to read this post… Burn that candle, drink that “special” bottle of wine and never lose sight of how perfect each and every one of you are. Explore this beautiful world and surround yourself with people you love and are inspired by. Also, peanut butter cookies and milk are hands down the best combination of food/drink items that has ever existed. I love cookies so much. And also pizza.

Originally Jesse Pinkman was supposed to be killed off Breaking Bad during the show’s first season. Aaron Paul says he didn’t learn that until series creator Vince Gilligan called him over one day during lunch.
"He goes, ‘Originally Jesse was supposed to die at the end of this season,’ … and instantly my heart dropped and slowed down a bit," Paul says. "And he said, ‘We don’t think we’re going to do that anymore.’ "
Gilligan told Paul that he loved the chemistry between Walt and Jesse.
"He decided to change the whole dynamic of their relationship and really the whole dynamic of the show," says Paul. "But the entire second season, the entire third season, I thought that Jesse could be a goner at any moment because there’s many things that this character could screw up on, and he could definitely meet his deathbed at any moment."
Other cast members, including Bryan Cranston, would joke around on set with Paul about his character’s potential demise.
"Bryan would come up and give me a hug and say, ‘I’m not going to say anything but it was such a pleasure working with you. It’s been an amazing past year-and-a-half, and you have a huge career ahead of you,’ " he says. "They would always joke around about it. They’ve kind of slowed down about it, but who knows — this kid could die at any second."
