1. WALTER WHITE IS REAL
William Duncan, a chemistry teacher from Texas, was arrested for selling home-cooked meth within school grounds; Mathematics professor Irina Kristy was caught running a meth lab from her Boston home; North Carolina teacher’s assistant and meth chef Marc Hodges was arrested earlier this year after suspiciously purchasing 1,000 cases of matches; and Stephen Doran, a Boston teacher with stage 3 cancer, was found dealing meth and arrested in May. In 2008, WALTER WHITE was one of the Most Wanted thanks to his meth business – he was never a teacher or anything, but his name? Sounds familiar, huh?
2. HEISENBERG TOO
Werner Heisenberg was one of the most important physicists of the 20th century. He won the nobel prize for developing the theory of quantum mechanics.
3. WENDY THE HOOKER LOOKS MUCH BETTER IN REAL LIFE
Her name is Julia Minesci in case you’re wondering. Here is one more interesting thing; while they were filming one man mistaked her for a real hooker so they had to stop filming. Ouch, acting is everything.
4. SKINNY PETE PRACTISED REALLY HARD FOR HIS PIANO SOLO
Charles Baker pianist and actor who plays Skinny Pete practised Bach’s Solfeggietto for three hours every day for a month before filming (awww). Unfortunately, only the intro made the cut.
5. WALT’S LOTTO CODE LEADS TO THE STUDIO
The coordinates don’t lead to $80 million or few plastic barrels. They lead to the studios in Albuquerque where Breaking Bad was filmed.
6. SALAMANCA BROTHERS ARE SCARY IN REAL LIFE TOO
Daniel and Luis Moncado the brothers who played the cousins have both served time in Jail. Luis actually has “F” and “U” tattoed on his eyelids. And they had to put a spoon on his eyes while tattooing. “Your eyelid is so thin the needle will go through and puncture your eye,” he said. “You gotta put a spoon.”
7. BELIZE IS AMAZING PLACE
Wonderful, isn’t it? So wonderful that the whole cast and crew was invited to take the all inclusive holiday.
8. THE COOKING FLASHBACK IN “OZYMANDIAS” WAS THE LAST SCENE TO FILM EVER
Shortly after that the whole cast and crew spent the night drinking in a the local bar. Cranston ended up with a tattoo of the show’s logo on his finger.
9. JESSE PLEMONS AKA TODD HAS A LOVELY VOICE
