Aaron Paul is best known for playing Jesse Pinkman in Vince Gilligan’s show Breaking Bad.
The actor recently took the center stage in the two-hour Netflix film El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie. The film debuted in 2019. An American neo-Western crime thriller film that serves as a sequel and epilogue to the hit television series Breaking Bad.
The actor in a recent inteaction spoke of the film’s final scene in which Jesse reflects on a conversation with his late girl friend Jane.
“I thought it was such a beautiful way to end this film,” Paul told Entertainment Weekly in a recent interview.
“He looks at the seat next to him and it’s empty, and then out of nowhere Jane appears, and they’re just in love, and they’re in a much less complicated time in their lives.
“And she ends up giving Jesse the best piece of advice that he could receive: Just take control of your own destiny and run with it. And that’s exactly what he did at the ending of this movie. I just thought it was such a beautiful way to move this story forward.”
Jane’s cameo was initially longer, the actor revealed. “On the day, Vince realized — he’s setting up a shot, he’s like, ‘There are so many damn shots of you in a car! We gotta get you out of your car,’” Paul added.
He continued saying: “So it begins with us driving and then the car breaks down and then it cuts to me on the phone with AAA, trying to pretend like he knows why the car broke down to have a chance at maybe slightly impressing Jane.”
“And then it cuts to him just walking over and sitting down next to Jane, and he is telling her what he feels about her, and they had this back-and-forth. And then it cuts into what was left [in the film].”
The deleted scene later sees Jesse reference Jane’s advice on destiny, in which he says, “I think I could be down for that,” to which Jane replies: “You’re not about to propose marriage, are you?”
