BREAKING Bad’s most morally bankrupt lawyer has been seeking solace along one of Spain’s most noted pilgrimages.
Bob Odenkirk, who played the charismatic Saul Goodman on the hit TV show, walked the religious route during a promotional trip for his new spin-off series Better Call Saul.
Ahead of the launch in Madrid, the 54-year-old took his mind off things by walking the Santiago Way, stopping in Merida, Caceres and Salamanca.
The pilgrimage route is one of Spain’s most spectacular paths, starting at the Santiago de Compostela in Galicia going through Pamplona and into France with waystations in Le Puy and Vezelay.
Walking 16 to 23 kilometres a day, he said his goal was to ‘eat only for survival reasons and clear my life of worries.’
“At this point in my life, you might expect that at least one person would have told me how beautiful and vibrant these Spanish regions are,” he said.
“Now I can return to L.A. and be that person.”
The new show, a prequel to Breaking Bad, is available on Netflix.
