Bryan Cranston recalls moment he asked for someone to be fired from Breaking Bad

Bryan Cranston recalls moment he asked for someone to be fired from Breaking Bad

The Hollywood A-lister called for the individual to be sacked from set

Bryan Cranston has recalled the exact moment he asked for someone to be fired from Breaking Bad.

The beloved Hollywood A-lister has a decade-spanning career so, it's of no surprise that he's worked with a whole bunch of people.

One of which, however, clearly rubbed him the wrong way on set leading Cranston to call for the individual to be sacked from set.

Cranston, 67, felt compelled to have someone fired while shooting Breaking Bad and opened up about the whole situation in a recent interview with GQ Magazine published on Thursday (8 June).

The Malcolm in the Middle star recounted the incident, noting just what led to his decision to give the crew member the boot once and for all.

Cranston was shocked by the crew member's 'inexcusable behaviour'.

Speaking of the individual in question, Cranston told the magazine: "He was incredibly inappropriate and inebriated, and he made a lot of people on our show feel very uncomfortable."

He continued: "I went in to talk to my producer about it and said, 'We've got to let him go. We've got to fire him. It's inexcusable behaviour'."

Luckily for Cranston, and everyone else on set, the producer was on the exact same page as he was more than ready to lay off the 'inappropriate' crew member as well.

The actor remembered the producer saying: "It's already done," when he first made the request.

Cranston has previously announced that he plans on stepping back from acting.

Since the hit AMC series ended, his career has boomed with roles in Godzilla, The Infiltrator, Your Honor and Asteroid City.

However, Cranston told GQ that he's now wanting to take some time out and spend it with wife of 34 years, Robin Dearden.

So, in a few years' time, the star is going to put his career on hold for a little while, shut his production company down and head to a small village somewhere - France being the likely destination - for at least six months.

"I want to change the paradigm once again,” he said. "For the last 24 years, Robin has led her life holding onto my tail.

"She’s been the plus one, she’s been the wife of a celebrity. She’s had to pivot and adjust her life based on mine."

Cranston continued: "She has tremendous benefit from it, but we’re uneven. I want to level that out. She deserves it."

Speaking of what the near future holds, he added: "I want to have that experience. I want to go for day trips and have the fire in the fireplace and drink wine with new friends and not read scripts.

"It’s not going to be like, 'Oh, I’ll read and see what I’m going to do'. No, it’s a pause. It’s a stop. I won’t be thinking about [work]. I’m not going to be taking phone calls."

Sounds like a pretty good retirement plan to me.
