Aaron Paul, who plays an unscrupulous meth dealer on "Breaking Bad," came out from his home last week to greet some Irish fans who had stopped outside on a tour of Los Angeles. The actor spent time making conversation with the family, took pictures, and the video of his pleasant demeanor went viral on YouTube.
Aaron Paul's house was being scoped out by the McNeive family, who came in from Ireland to see the sights. The father of the family, Paul, spotted the Emmy award-winning star up on his porch and called out to him, but was surprised when he came down to meet them.
"Sometimes I see the van, and sometimes I don't," Paul said, referring to their tourist bus. "And when I do, I try to say hello."
After meeting the McNeive clan, Paul told them his family was in L.A. for the premiere of the final season of "Breaking Bad," which took place Wednesday. The video Paul McNeive took went up on YouTube Friday, but less than a week later, it already has 2.2 million hits.
"That is one humble [guy]! Money don't change everyone!" one user wrote.
"What a nice guy. Much respect to him for doing this," Harperlap commented as well.
Paul joined Bryan Cranston (Walter White), Anna Gunn (Skyler White), Bob Odenkirk (Saul Goodman) and showrunner Vince Gilligan inside the show's iconic RV to roll up to the premiere, according to The Hollywood Reporter. They also allowed one lucky contest winner to join them while raising $300,000 for The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.
"I can't think of a better way to start it out, being in this vehicle showing up," Cranston told the crowd before going inside.
