The actress is. You might remember her from A Knight's Tale.



And here's an interview...

THR: You are from Scotland but live in upstate New York. Were you aware of Breaking Bad before you got the part?

Fraser: I was aware of Breaking Bad, for sure, but I hadn’t seen it. Then I got the part and I was too scared to watch it because I knew it was such a massive show and I didn't want to intimidate myself more than I already was. I went on and did my first episode and Jonathan Banks said "You haven't seen the show? What is wrong with you? Go and watch it and come back to me." I started watching it and I couldn't stop. I watched everything in three of four days. My life just paused.

THR: What about your friends back in Scotland? Did they know what it was?

Fraser: The show doesn't air anywhere there, apart from now it's on Netflix. But everybody watches it illegally there. Everyone has seen it in the U.K. and Ireland and Europe. They all watch it. Tons of my friends were really shocked that I was in it. It seemed totally incongruous. Like "You're in Breaking Bad? What?! You're in Breaking Bad!?"

There is a big distance between making somebody briefly ill and murdering them. I don't think anyone else in that group would have reached for their gun. Maybe Mike but he would have tried to find an excuse not to.

The kid could have died, he had no way of knowing if the kid would live r die and did it anyways. That's pure evil.

I'm a big LEGO fan and people make awesome things with it, including porn like fake box covers.

The creepiest is someone wanted to know what glue to use to hold LEGOs forever (which is a sin in LEGO Land) so he could make a functioning gun. And he's like "I'm not doing anything that is illegal!" and I'm like "No it's legal, just really stupid".

^^^ Heh...like the idiots trying to make a gun from a 3D printer. I say, let them blow their faces off when it misfires. Just chalk one more up to ol' Darwin.

That was another great episode. Perhaps not the gut-punch we had last week with Hank and Walt, but still some brilliant scenes. Skylar/Hank in the diner was pretty electric, though my sympathy for her dropped after she turned down Hank's offer of help.

The biggie, though, was Skylar/Marie, where my heart broke. Marie jumped to the conclusion before Hank about paying for his wounds from the drug cartel, and boy what a slap! I felt that. I understand Marie's motivations for wanting to take Polly to safety, but she was wrong.

I loved how polite child-killer Todd was with Lydia, by helping her when she couldn't face up to the murders she had ordered. Oh and lying on the money was pretty funny too.

Will Walt's lottery ticket be a winner? Will he ever see his money again?

I'm all for Walt Scarfacing Todd's uncle's group. But I hope it's not to rescue someone, but more along the lines that they disgraced Heisenberg and took away his empire. I want to see Walt go out a megalomaniac, not a redemptive character.

I'd like to see him redeem himself, but I'm not opposed to the other outcome. Either way, I think it's safe to say there will be some Scarfacing going on.

Walt rescuing somebody wouldn't be redemptive at all. It would just prevent him from being even worse.

Re: Breaking Bad Final Half Season

I can just see it now...

Walt's lying hidden in a duck blind that he set up in advance of Todd's uncle's crew, covered head to toe in a camo ghillie suit. He's got the M60 in front of him. The links are loaded and a round is chambered. The crew arrives at wherever and they're right in front of him, about 50 yards away. He goes to pull the trigger and...nothing. He keeps trying to pull the trigger and nothing happens. He quickly pulls out the instruction booklet that he got with the 60 and buries his face in it. We hear some illegible mumbling and we see the top of his head bobbing about from behind the booklet and then he all of a sudden loud-whispers - "gak! Safety!".

Click...

And...scene...

Re: Breaking Bad Final Half Season

Even if Walt single-handedly saved a bus full of schoolchildren from radioactive zombie vampire child molesters from Mars and then died after rescuing the last child (perhaps at the hands/fangs of one of said RZVCMs), it wouldn't redeem him, it would just tip the scales ever so slightly away from all the horrible, horrible things he's done. He's not a hero, and he never was. Trying to turn him into one at the last minute would be a ridiculous cheat.
