Talking to the Radio Times, Cranston said: "Breaking Bad changed my life – my occupation, my personal life, my financial security. Everything adjusted with that show. It was a phenomenally creative experience and I’m very proud of it. To go back and touch base with that show was an easy thing for me to want to do."
The former Malcolm in the Middle star also said he had been enjoying watching Better Call Saul as a fan: "I wanted to see this world and this story that was familiar, yet brand new and fresh to me. Aaron Paul and I told Vince Gilligan that if he ever wanted us to appear on the show, we’d definitely do it."
Since Breaking Bad finished in 2013, Cranston has largely worked in movies and was Oscar nominated for his performance in Trumbo. He has also appeared in films such as Argo, Godzilla and The Infiltrator.
Cranston also recently played Walter White in a commercial for Popcorners that aired during Super Bowl LVII. The ad also saw Aaron Paul and Raymond Cruz reprise their roles as Jesse Pinkman and Tuco Salamanca.
After the commercial aired, Cranston discussed returning again to the White character: "I’ve had opportunities to bring Walter White into the milieu. I did it for Aaron’s movie El Camino and then once again for Better Call Saul. We were able to come back and each time, we think, ‘We’ll this is the last time we’re ever going to do this and then PopCorners calls and it was like, ‘Well we’ll do it one more time.'"
