Today is a bitter sweet day for all Breaking Bad fans.
We’ve all been counting down to the return of Breaking Bad in our lives and in only a few hours (Midday), Irish and UK viewers will be able to get their latest fix. However this is the beginnning of the end with only 8 episodes left to watch!
So to fill the next 4 hours before the next hit, let’s go back to the very beginning, before Jesse Pinkman even existed – watch Aaron Paul audition for the role of Jesse Pinkman.
It’s hard to believe that creator and Executive Producer, Vince Gilligan, almost killed off Jesse in Season 1 episode 9. Wactch him explain is why Jesse was going to be killed him off and what essentially saved him (in Aaron Paul’s words – “Thank God for the writer’s strike. Thank you writers. We love you!”)
I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents!
As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen!
This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t.
Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings.
Away from The Bellissimo Files, you can find me on Spin 1038 on Saturdays, between 1pm and 3pm,presenting Plan B. There’s celebrity interviews, entertainment news, the low down on the must see movies and music releases of the week, the ultimate guide to what’s on where in the city, as well as masterclasses with experts on standby to answer listeners’ questions.
