And now we come to the last of the three “Breaking Bad” interviews I successfully(*) recorded on a trip to Albuquerque a couple of months ago. (Previously, I spoke with Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston, and also posted my review of the new season and photos from a tour of the set.)
(*) Anna Gunn and I had a good conversation about Walt and Skyler’s marriage, but technology was not my friend with that one, alas.
Our final subject: Betsy Brandt, whose Marie sometimes can get lost in the shuffle of a very testosterone-fueled show, but who becomes more prominent this season as Marie tries to deal with Hank’s attitude post-shooting. We spoke about the evolution of Marie from the selfish klepto of season 1 to who she is now, about Brandt’s off-camera friendship with Dean Norris, Marie’s relationship with brother-in-law Walt, and more.
As with the previous video interviews, I apologize for the camerawork, and suggest that if it bothers you, just listen and open up a new browser to look at animated “Parks and Recreation” gifs.
