LOS ANGELES — Aaron Paul says his “Breaking Bad” role wasn’t supposed to last past the first season.

But his Jesse Pinkman character ultimately became a fan-favourite and now he’s starring in the Netflix film “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie,” which premieres Friday. The movie has cameos from some of the show’s best characters.

The film is a continuation of the “Breaking Bad” series that concluded on AMC in 2013. Paul starred in the series opposite Bryan Cranston as Walter White, a high school chemistry teacher turned meth maker.

“El Camino” picks up after Pinkman fled from a bloody massacre that ultimately left White dead. The story focuses on Paul’s character who tries to escape his former drug life to start anew.
