Cranston shares how the difference between his own acting life and that of undercover agent Mazur differs in that one false move on Mazur’s part could cost him everything, whereas Cranston is able to reset his scene and try again.
Cranston also shares about as humans we take things in, process them and eliminate it out (including experiences, feelings, etc.). He poses the question of ‘what would an inability to share experiences and traumas (due to the secrecy of a federal agent’s work) do to the human psyche?’ His role as Mazur shows the results of this double life and suppression, affecting his character’s mental health.
