Breaking Bad: Walter White
(Spoiler Alert. Skip if you haven’t watched the whole series) Walter White, alias Heisenberg was portrayed by Bryan Cranston in the just concluded award winning TV drama Braking Bad. Once a promising chemist who was one of the founding members of the multi-billion dollar company Gray Matter Technologies, Walter left the company for personal reasons and became an unhappy and disillusioned high school chemistry teacher. After being diagnosed with Stage III lung cancer, he resorts to manufacturing methamphetamine (Meth) to ensure his family’s financial security when he dies.
As the series progresses, Walter gradually becomes darker and takes on a more villainous drug baron role. In the last season, his relationship with family gets irreparable. His brother-in-law winds up dead while hunting him down while his family rejects him despite his efforts to give them the best life. The series finale ends with Water dead as a result of a gunshot he has sustained from an automatic rifle.
