Walter White (Bryan Cranston), Breaking Bad
These days, Walter White is a stone-cold murderous psychopath, but he wasn't always that way. Mr. White started out as a meek cancer-stricken chemistry teacher who needed to ensure his family's financial security. In other words, he's an everyman — so empathetic in his ordinariness and the bad hand life dealt him that of course
it made sense to turn to cooking meth to bring in the bucks. That his pride has driven him to become The One Who Knocks
is just an unfortunate but intriguing consequence. Plus: How could you not feel a little bad for him when Skyler told him that she's just waiting for him to die?
