Giancarlo Esposito On Developing Breaking Bad’s Gus Fring | Los Angeles Comic Con

Giancarlo Esposito

Giancarlo Esposito has become one of those actors that we know can deliver a phenomenal villain. While his role as Moff Gideon on Disney+’s The Mandalorian has recently been in the spotlight by fans he has been featured in many other projects. He plays San Edgar in Prime Video’s The Boys. Also has done voice acting in the recently released video game, Far Cry 6 as Anton Castillo and is the voice of Lex Luthor in the hit animated HBO Max series, Harley Quinn.

But who can forget one of his most infamous roles as Gus Fring in AMC’s Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul. In the series, he plays a cold and calculated Chilean-born restauranteur and drug kingpin. Anyone up for some Los Pollos Hermanos? But despite being a dangerous drug kingpin he has a very human side to him that has made him beloved by his employees and community. No doubt he was one of the most memorable characters in that franchise.


During this year’s tenth anniversary of Los Angeles Comic Con at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Giancarlo Esposito was featured in a Spotlight Panel. During the panel, he shared with the crowd how he developed the character and some specific characteristics. Instead of summarizing it, here is the clip we shot down below.

Breaking Bad Synopsis

Mild-mannered high school chemistry teacher Walter White thinks his life can’t get much worse. His salary barely makes ends meet. A situation not likely to improve once his pregnant wife gives birth, and their teenage son is battling cerebral palsy. But Walter is dumbstruck when he learns he has terminal cancer. Realizing that his illness probably will ruin his family financially. Walter makes a desperate bid to earn as much money as he can in the time he has left by turning an old RV into a meth lab on wheels.
