About Anna Gunn
Top TV-show regular Anna Gunn didn’t really break out until Breaking Bad. As Skyler White, the wife of main character Walter White on the mega-hit AMC drama Breaking Bad, Anna portrayed extreme emotions, relationship turmoil, and sometimes illegal behavior. And it was noticed. She was awarded two consecutive Primetime Emmy Awards as well as a Screen Actors’ Guild Award.
The show ran from 2008 to 2013 and earned her plenty of fans. Since then, she’s appeared on Law & Order, Gracepoint, Criminal Minds, in a few minor movies, and in an off-Broadway production. “All the things I’ve been in lately have been quite murderous,” Anna told The New York Times in 2014. “My dad has said, ‘Are you going to do a light comedy again? You’re very funny, Anna, and you don’t want people thinking you’re just all serious all the time.’ Which is a very sweet, parental thing to say.”
Before her Breaking Bad fame, she played a recurring character on The Practice and a woman forced to marry for security on Deadwood. She got into acting because she was “always intrigued by good stories,” she said in a New York Times interview.
Anna was married to Scottish actor and real estate broker Alastair Duncan from 1990 to 2009. The couple has two daughters. “They’re always saying, ‘But we wanna watch you, Mom,’” Anna said of her daughters. “And I say, ‘I know, this one isn’t really quite appropriate, not quite yet.’ They would come to the Breaking Bad set, but I had to choose very carefully the days that they came.”
