It was around the year 2000, and Anna Gunn was taking a walk in sunbaked New Mexico. She wasn’t in Albuquerque, the setting for the show Breaking Bad, on which she would embody one of the more singular and divisive characters of television's new golden age as Skyler White, but Santa Fe, where she was born and raised. At the time, she was 6 months pregnant with her first daughter, so she was moving a touch slower than usual. It wasn't difficult for a local, an acquaintance of her parents, to catch up with her and start a conversation. The guy's name eludes her, but she remembers all too well what he had to say.
