The Oscar winner watched every episode of “Breaking Bad” over a two week period.
The instant he finished Hopkins sent Cranston an email he’ll want to have framed.
"Your performance as Walter White was the best acting I have seen—ever," Hopkins wrote.
And he didn’t stop there.
"You and all the cast are the best actors I've ever seen."
Hopkins went on to assure Cranston he was sincere.
"That may sound like a good lung full of smoke blowing. But it is not. It's almost midnight out here in Malibu, and I felt compelled to write this email."
Near the end Hopkins added “thank you. That kind of work/artistry is rare, and when, once in a while, it occurs, as in this epic work, it restores confidence.”
