Anna Gunn gives her take on what happened to Breaking Bad's Skyler White

Anna Gunn, who played long-suffering wife Skyler to meth-cooking kingpin Walter White on Breaking Bad, presented a rosy denouement for her character in an interview with The New York Times Magazine.

"Skyler was a broken, devastated ghost of a human being in her last scene with Walt. And I think that probably lasts for a while," Gunn said. "Now I like to think she and Marie ended up making peace with each other, and went off to a tropical island and opened a beach hotel."

Gunn admitted, though, that her preferred ending didn't make much of an impression on show creator Vince Gilligan: "When you presented Vince with an idea that he really didn't think was great, he'd say, 'Huh, I like the way you're thinking'.' And that would mean: No."
