It has been the last star to arrive at the Sitges festival and its presence has been the one that has created the most expectation. And is that Aaron Paul left the bar very high with his participation for five seasons in the successful series Breaking Bad (2008-2013) and has many followers who have not wanted to miss this Saturday their visit to the contest to promote The Road: A Breaking Bad Movie, the film that follows the exploits of his character Jesse Pinkman after the events of the last episode of the great work created by Vince Gilligan.
Aaron Paul has put everyone in his pocket wasting sympathy and charisma in the press conference to talk about the film that could be seen in scoop on Netflix last Friday and that today has been screened on the big screen in the auditorium of the Meliá Sitges hotel . "I think it's the end for Jesse Pinkman," said the interpreter about the role he has made known throughout the world, "but I also said it six years ago," he added about this character he has felt " so lucky ”to give life.
Under the direction of Gilligan, who proposed this project two years ago and did not hesitate to accept "because I would follow Gilligan until the end of the abyss and does not have to convince me of anything", the film is intended to give the public a " good closing ”because a constant question that always raged in the air was to know what had happened to Pinkman. Paul has considered that he knew Jesse when he read the pilot's script, but after 62 chapters this story has helped him put himself in the skin of his problematic situations. "We have entered a new chapter that shows the hell and torture this character is going through." "The ending is beautiful, 100% successful," he says.
