In a new interview, Better Call Saul’s showrunner Peter Gould said that the character Gus Fring is gay.
Ahead are spoilers for the most recent season of Better Call Saul.
In this week’s episode of the popular prequel series to Breaking Bad, After Fring has convinced Don Eladio told Lalo Salamanca that he didn’t hurt him, he can be seen flirting with another man in a bar.
Gould talked about the scene on the podcast “The Watch” from The Ringer.
“Gus is holding on to his anger and his desire for revenge, and maybe he’s holding on to this romance he had with his boyfriend Max [his dead “He’s gay,” he said, confirming that Fring is a gay character on Breaking Bad.
“We know that Gus had some violent past before that, but we haven’t been very specific about it. Gus Fring’s life seems to change after Max dies.
“He’s decided to empty himself, and he can’t be himself with another person.”
In a flashback to season four of Breaking Bad, Gus and Max met Eladio for the first time when they offered to sell drugs with the cartel.
Eladio turned them down, and Hector Salamanca killed Max in front of Gus, which made Gus want to get back at him for killing his boyfriend.
Fans of the show now think that this love made him want to get back at the cartel thugs and Hector Salamanca for killing his wife.
The two actors will play Walter White and Jesse Pinkman again in the last season of the AMC spinoff. In April, they would be back.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Cranston told the Albuquerque Journal, “When we inquired, to keep it a secret for life.” “We arrived in Albuquerque at night on a plane.”
He also said, “We took this plane, and they went to a private part of the airport. Then we took two steps off the tarmac and into an SUV. They move us to a duplex Airbnb. Paul had the floor on top. I was on the ground floor, and we couldn’t leave.
Cranston and Paul said they lived in the duplex all the time except when they were filming, which took four days.
Paul said, “That’s so funny because this was meant to be a big surprise and secret. Then, they suddenly said we did it, so why did they keep us locked up? They were messing with us, man.”
Both actors’ IMDb pages say they will be in the July 25 episode of Better Call Saul called “Nippy.”
