Six months after saying goodbye to Jesse Pinkman, the 34-year-old actor immediately jump into another skin as he plays a string of diverse characters. But everybody wants to know what happened to Jesse? And Paul gave his prediction on the life Jesse is living when he left his meth-making day job.
"His fingerprints are all over that lab and so he's in hiding," Paul revealed in an interview with RadioTimes.com as he wishes his troubled character to stay away from his previous life. "I like to think that he's living as a carpenter somewhere - somewhere in Alaska."
After spending seven years in the skin of Jesse PInkman, Paul couldn't be happier to play a lighter role in his upcoming movies. He recently premiered his adrenalin-pumping movie "Need for Speed" and suicidal rom-com "A Long Way Down" starring alongside Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette and Imogen Poots.
Known as one of the greatest TV series of all time, "Breaking Bad" is Vince Gilligan's TV phenomenon that jumpstart his career in Hollywood. When asked how he keep his momentum and passion for playing Jesse Pinkman, Paul said: "One day at a time."
"I always joked around about how when the show was ending it was just downhill from here and that's not necessarily a bad thing because Breaking Bad I hold on such a high level so anything below that doesn't necessarily mean it's bad - it's just not on a par with Breaking Bad," added the actor.
Playing Jesse Pinkman definitely changed his life and not just his career, and the actor couldn't help to indebted to series creator Vince Gilligan for trusting him with the role. "I think I can speak for Bryan and Bob [Odenkirk, who played Saul Goodman], all of these roles are the roles of our lives - they've changed the game for us and we're all very, very lucky," concluded the star.
