Polished Edge: Laura Fraser of ‘Breaking Bad’ on AMC
Q: Were you surprised by the attention this show receives?
A: If I were the writers, I would have to do some serious detaching from the outcome. There is such a buildup. Whenever there is a buildup to anything, inevitably, there will be disappointment. It is hard because people have such high expectations, and everybody who was working on the shows thinks the ending is perfect. And I loved the ending.
Q: Have more opportunities presented themselves since being on this?
A: They have. It certainly changed my career a little bit. It is easier in some ways. I have had more offers. I used to have to audition for everything. I still audition for lots of things. I get offers, which is really nice after 20 years.
Q: What would be your ideal role?
A: Anything that Jodie Foster would be interested in playing. In Shakespeare, there are characters I would like to play. I still have a fear of theater. I don’t know if I will manage that. I used to do it. I developed a bit of a phobia. It’s not a real phobia. I can go in and watch.
Q: When did you know you definitely wanted to be an actor?
A: I was about 3 or 4, very early on. There were tons of children, and we would play together and put on shows and invite all of the parents. I used to always play the animals because I was the youngest. I would always be a dog.
