Actor Robert Forster died on Friday, the day his latest film, El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, was released on Netflix and in select theaters. In Vince Gilligan’s sequel to Breaking Bad, Forster reprised a memorable character he’d introduced in a guest stint during the original series’ fifth season.
In an emotional tribute posted on Saturday, El Camino and Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul remembered the Oscar nominated actor who died from brain cancer at age 78.
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.
