Michelle MacLaren Quotes
Graphic novels are such a visually creative world - it's really interesting what they can do in one sketch. Now I'm hooked.
I'm not surprised that I tend to go for the dark side. I was a really scared kid, so I think I understand what scares people.
I did every odd job you could possibly imagine: Holding a sign in the rain for 14 hours straight, sweeping up cigarette butts, pouring coffee, running around - anything I could to be on a film set. I wanted to be in the business. So I'd say, 'You need that job done? Fine,' and I became indispensable to people.

I love the dark comedy in 'Breaking Bad.'

A montage is incredibly challenging. When I can, I'd like to know what the music is going to be ahead of time because that will affect the beat, the pace of the montage.
My feeling is, from when I started on 'Breaking Bad,' there's no reason to pick and choose because every episode is great. Whatever episode you get, you're lucky to do it.
