Bryan Cranston, star of the hit drama "Breaking Bad" decided to interact with his fans while at San Diego's Comic Con Sunday while wearing a mask of the character Walter White. Because of the lifelike mask, Cranston was able to go among the conference unnoticed.
Bryan Cranston's mask was a replica of Walter White, and came complete with a bald cap to imitate the methamphetamine dealer's lack of hair during several seasons of the show. Cranston has hair, but was able to fool fans into taking pictures of him and talking to him while keeping his distinct voice in a "higher register," he said.
Eventually, Cranston revealed himself during the panel discussion for "Breaking Bad." Once safely out of reach of the fans' reach, he removed the mask, and Con-goers yelled with excitement.
"So it was fun meeting you, and you met me!" he said.
The hijinks weren't over even then. While Cranston's co-star Aaron Paul was attempting to answer questions from the crowd, he began kissing the Walter White mask, which made the audience laugh. Paul, who plays Jesse Pinkman on the show, called Cranston "the most professional person I've ever worked with but also the immature man I've ever experienced, as you can tell. Which is a beautiful combination," according to Entertainment Weekly.
The panel of "Breaking Bad" actors also answered questioned and showed a recap of the last four seasons in a video. Then they showed the first few minutes of the fifth season, which wowed fans.
To commemorate his time on the critically acclaimed show, Cranston decided to get a tattoo of the "Breaking Bad" logo on his right ring finger.
"I wanted something … something that would give me private personal pleasure, like when I pass by and catch a glimpse of a picture of my mom, or my old manager. People who are gone now. And it seemed appropriate. I mean, 'Breaking Bad' changed my life," he told GQ magazine.
Paul also decided to have "no half measures"— one of the iconic phrases from a particularly dramatic moment in the show— branded on the inside of his biceps.
