Aaron Paul had a hard dose of reality the day he wrapped work on the drama series as he was left stranded in the rain outside a deserted California airport.
The actor was still on an emotional high after completing his time on the cult show when he found himself stuck in the middle of nowhere as he waited for a car to pick him up and take him to his next acting job, Disney film Need For Speed.
He tells Nylon magazine, "I land. It's 2am. I'm in this little airport (in Mendocino), but it's closed, and no one comes to pick me up.
"The cell service was non-existent, so no one knows I'm there. I just wrapped the highlight of my career, so I'm super bummed... I'm standing in the middle of the rain just waiting to get picked up for two solid hours. It gave me time to think, 'What am I doing?'"
