Breaking Bad: Gus Fring and his interesting revelations

Giancarlo Esposito, or Gus Fring in the TV series “Breaking Bad,” recently appeared on SiriusXM’s “Jim & Sam” show. There, Esposito admitted to being so broke before the release of the TV series (around 2008) that he thought about planning his own death. By doing that, his children would have been financially secure with the payout from his life insurance policy. The actor further explained the reason why his brain ended up thinking this, highlighting the need to protect his children. 

According to the newspaper “Variety,” Esposito claimed, “I had four kids. I wanted them to have a life. It was a hard moment in time. I literally thought of self-annihilation so they could survive. That’s how low I was.”

We all know, however, how distressing it is when losing a father, a mother, or any other relative, and Giancarlo luckily got aware of this. He affirmed, “Then I started to think that’s not viable because the pain I would cause them would be lifelong, and there’d be lifelong trauma that would just extend the generational trauma I’m trying to move away from. The light at the end of the tunnel was ‘Breaking Bad.'”

What about Giancarlo Esposito’s background? 

In the TV series “Breaking Bad,” he appeared on 26 episodes, reprised the role of Gus in the prequel series “Better Call Saul” for 34 episodes, and what’s more? He is also interested in playing Gus for a third time in a prequel series about the villain.
