He may have played the best “bad guy” on TV—but in real life, Bryan Cranston is definitely one of the good guys.
Last Saturday, the 58-year-old made a dream come true for one of his most dedicated Breaking Bad fans, a 19-year-old cancer patient named Brad Joyner.

Six months ago, the teen was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer and in response to the devastating news, his family launched a viral campaign—using the hashtag #BreakingBrad—to get the attention of the star of the North Carolina native’s favorite show.
The campaign was deemed a success when the Emmy winner had a Skype chat with Brad on Sunday, Sept. 20 that lasted more than a half hour!
The teen’s mother, Aimee Pettigrew, said that her son “could really relate to the character with the cancer.”
She recorded not only their Skype session, but also the moment Brad learned he was able to cross one of the major goals of his “Living List” (see the video above).
