"I watched Vince as he tried to wrap his arms around this beast of a story," the star recalls of his showrunner, who told THR that Cranston was the embodiment of Walter White: "He never vacillated, he never got scared." "I'm pretty boring -- I never intentionally break rules. I think that's what most interested me about Walter White," says Gilligan. "So, as an experiment, I wanted to start the series with this nice, likable guy, and then, bit by bit, make him less so. Ironically, that's the opposite of what happened."
