Actress Olivia Woodley spoke out Wednesday about the casting of her character, Walter White, as the series’ drug lord, Breaking Bad’s lead character, on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.”
Woodley was asked by Colbert about casting her character Walter White in the series.
“I don’t think you should ever say ‘I cannot believe this have happened,'” she said.
“And I’m really not, and I can’t imagine anyone who is doing this can imagine, that it has happened.”
Woodleys character, played by “Breaking Bad” star Aaron Paul, was created by Bryan Cranston, the creator of “The Wire,” who wrote the script for the show.
“Breaking Out” is set to premiere on Monday.
The actress said she hopes the casting news helps to give the show an identity and tone.
“It’s about a family, and it’s a family of the kind of people that you think of when you think Breaking Bad,” Woodley said.
