Bryan Cranston recently sat down with Big Think to talk about how his experiences helped shape his performance as Walter White in Breaking Bad.  According to Cranston, during his early days in Hollywood, he had a very strong-willed girlfriend who unknown to the actor, happened to be a drug addict. When he attempted to break-up with her, she denied the split and began to continue to pursue him which quickly turned into a case of stalking.
