Anna Gunn has watched some pretty amazing things go down in playing wife to meth maker Walt White on AMC’s ‘Breaking Bad.’ But at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday, she said she now felt she could bring a level of ‘cool’ home to her family.

‘I’m starstruck!’ she said. ‘One of the cast members from ‘Glee’ came up and said he liked MY work!’


Which plucky star was it? ‘Darren Criss. My daughter is going to flip out. She will flip out!’

Gunn said production for the fifth season of ‘Breaking Bad’ will start this month, with eight episodes slated to shoot. The highly anticipated final season will be broken into two shortened mini-seasons. The last batch of episodes will probably shoot in winter 2013, she said.

‘It’s been an incredible ride,’ she said. ‘And you wouldn’t think so with such an unusual story line like ours.’
