“The story of a disempowered man who's disappointed by life, and then becomes the outlaw and tells people to fuck off – it tapped into something in our culture that made people root for him with a fervor, a real kind of "Yes, I want to be that guy!" It touched the part of us that knows what it is to be the underdog, to feel helpless, and to fantasize about having power. And viewers aren't going to like the person who stands in his way. That person was Skyler. When he said, "I'm doing this for my family," she said, "I don't buy your line of bullshit." That made people really angry. And if you add gender politics and perhaps some sexism into it, it becomes even more complex.”
- Anna Gunn discussing her role as Sklyer White in Rolling Stone interview.
In the first couple of seasons of Breaking Bad, Skyler was the moral voice, but viewers identified with Walt’s character so strongly that EVERYTHING she did made them angry. And when you have a strong protagonist, like Walter White, you NEED an equally strong antagonist - and that was Skyler White. Being continuously lambaste by Walter White fans after every episode only proves Anna Gunn has done her job extremely well. Perhaps too well.
We send out a BIG congratulations to her for 2013 Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress.
Skylar White wore Lee Brevard though out the show and her jewelry was a strong design element for her character. Contact the studio for more details.
