Bryan Cranston is no stranger to goodbyes.
"As actors we get used to saying goodbye a lot because we go through beginnings, middles and ends quite often, and we have to move on," Cranston said at a recent Envelope Emmy Roundtable on the subject of TV dramas. He was joined by Andrew Lincoln ("The Walking Dead"), Elisabeth Moss ("Mad Men"), Kevin Bacon ("The Following"), Connie Britton ("Nashville") and the Los Angeles Times' Greg Braxton.
In 2006, Cranston bid farewell to his character Hal, the beleaguered dad on the sitcom "Malcolm in the Middle." This year, as the acclaimed drama "Breaking Bad" comes to a close, Cranston will find himself saying goodbye to a very different family man: the cancer-stricken chemistry teacher turned ruthless drug lord Walter White.
Asked who he'll miss more, Cranston said: "I love them both for different reasons, obviously. And it's just basically different aspects of your own characters that you're exploring."
