Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston on Better Call Saul cameo’s secrecy

Breaking Bad‘s Bryan Cranston has revealed more details about his and Aaron Paul’s much talked about cameo in the final season of Better Call Saul. Specifically, about all the secrecy surrounding their roles on the show.

In an interview with Radio TimesCranston said that he cannot shed much light onto what his role entails, even going so far as to say that he doesn’t even know which episode he and Paul are actually going to star in. But he did talk about what it was like to shoot the scenes.

“It was [surreal],” he said, “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.”

He then gave details about the lengths that the showrunners went to to protect their involvement in the final season, which was almost scrapped due to Bob Odenkirk’s health scare last year.

“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,” he said.

“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!'”

Meanwhile, his co-star Aaron Paul has expressed that fans are going to be very excited to see how they become a part of the show, adding that their return comes about in a “very unexpected” way.

“To be honest, I’m such a fan of Better Call Saul that I just didn’t initially see how they were going to do it,” he admitted. “But of course, leave it to [creators] Vince [Gilligan] and Peter [Gould] and the rest of the writers to come up with the perfect way. It’s fun. I think people are going to be excited.”

Better Call Saul airs on AMC in the US and on Netflix in the UK.
