Which scenes were the most difficult for the cast of Breaking Bad?

Four episodes down and four to go until BREAKING BAD comes to an end. We are already at a pivotal point, and regardless of whether we have theories, there's still no telling where it will end up.

In the meantime, EW spoke with the cast of the series and asked what some of their most difficult scenes were. When it came to guessing which scenes they would choose, I chose poorly. I actually remember Aaron Paul talking about the scene that he had the most trouble with which also sends my mind racing. What could it be? OH GOD WHAT COULD IT BE???

There are some spoilers if you are not caught up with the latest season. If you want to read on then scroll past the gif of the memorable dinner scene. It's one of my personal favorites.

BRYAN CRANSTON (Walt)

While Cranston notes that he was emotionally tested by the season 2 scene in which Walt stands by while Jane (Krysten Ritter) chokes to death on her own vomit, he picks a more physically arduous moment from that season the night scene in which Walt and Jesse (Aaron Paul) kidnap Saul (Bob Odenkirk) and force him to dig his own grave by the headlights of the RV. It was like 9 degrees without the windchill factor, and it was really windy, and sand was kicking up and blowing in our faces, recallss Cranston. Im supposed to hold the gun out and Im so cold that Im shaking, and Im like Oh my god That was probably the toughest scene to do.

AARON PAUL (Jesse)

Paul indicates that his toughest test came in an episode that hasnt aired yet. From all of the installments that have aired, though, he points to the scene in which he woke up next to the overdosed and deceased Jane. Emotionally that was the hardest place to go to, says Paul. It was not a fun day. Playing Jesse, I dont draw upon any of my past experiences, I just try to force myself to believe whats actually happening. That is why that scene was so rough, because I put myself in Jesses position and I forced myself to make myself believe that my girlfriend was there dead in front of me, desperately trying to wake her up, and all of this guilt inside saying, I did this, I did this.

ANNA GUNN (Skyler)

Gunn doesnt reach back far into the shows history for her choice. It happened in the second half of this season, when Skyler admits the truth to Marie, takes a slap in the face, and gets in a physical struggle with her sister after she tries to take baby Holly. For Skyler, the worst thing that she could have imagined was for her sister to find out, says Gunn. And the worst thing about it was that she could not tell her sister, who is the closest person in the world to her: But listen to the story. Listen to whats really going on. Because to say anything would be to implicate her self, to implicate Walt, to get them further into trouble. She just had to sit there and take it. But then to have her sister think she was such an awful person, that she had to remove her child from the house, is every mothers nightmare. It was just an extremely hard scene to shoot. We had to shoot with what we call the dummy baby, the rubber baby. But then occasionally for close-ups, we did put the real baby in. And just the idea of any kind of struggle going on between two sisters over a child you dont have to stretch very far for that to affect you. It was hard for us to maintain our composure throughout the day. And its just heartbreaking because those sisters are like war buddies. They were tremendously close and bonded, so for them to be torn apart like that was excruciating.

Aaron Paul's most impressive scene (to me)

***SPOILERS***

that episode when Walt heads over to Jesse's apartment to help him search for the ricin cigarette. when Jesse discovers it in the Roomba, he goes from frustrated to relieved to bawling with guilt in a manner of seconds.

This was a blast to read. Would have loved to have known about other show like this like Lost, The Shield etc.

I would love to have an article like this on Sons of Anarchy or Mad Men since they're both almost done.

The scene which I thought would have been most difficult to pull off for Bryan Cranston (and Aaron Paul I guess) is when Jesse confronts him in season 4 about poisoning Brock. It's such a long scene yet it felt like that's how it would play out if it were real. Walt just plays along acting confused with Jesse's accusations and then he has that moment where he tells Jesse it was Gus's plan all along. Cranston showed so much range in that scene.
