Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul ‘heartbroken’ as he pays tribute to Robert Forster

Aaron Paul has paid tribute to his Breaking Bad co-star Robert Forster following his death.

The actor, who recently reprised his role as vacuum salesman Ed Galbraith in movie El Camino, died aged 78 on Friday (12 October) after a battle with brain cancer.

Aaron, who plays Jesse Pinkman in Breaking Bad, has since paid tribute on Twitter, writing: ‘I am heartbroken to hear the news of the passing of Robert Forster. My god.

‘I had the privilege of knowing this beautiful man and working along side of him. A true gentleman that loved to act. I love you my friend.

‘Thank you for loving me. You are and always will be a legend.’

Bryan Cranston, who plays Walter White in the show, also paid tribute, writing: ‘I’m saddened today by the news that Robert Forster has passed away.

‘A lovely man and a consummate actor. I met him on the movie Alligator 40 years ago, and then again on BB. I never forget how kind and generous he was to a young kid just starting out in Hollywood. RIP Bob.’

Robert began his acting career back in the 1960s, but gained wider attention when he starred in Quentin Tarantino’s 1997 flick Jackie Brown as Max Cherry. The role earned him an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor.

Following this success, he went onto star in Twin Peaks, Lucky Number Slevin, Me Myself And Irene, and Mulholland Drive.

He went onto star in Breaking Bad in the show’s final episodes, and reprised the role in follow-up film El Camino where he starred opposite Aaron Paul’s Jesse Pinkman in a standout scene.

Robert is survived by long-term partner Denise Grayson, his children, Bobby Elizabeth, Kate and Maeghen, and his grandchildren, Tess, Liam, Jack and Olivia.
