  • I’ve always found Lydia an intriguing character on Breaking Bad and thought the actress looked familiar but never knew her name. I looked up Laura Fraser and discovered she is Scottish, something I didn’t know, and that I’ve seen her in 3 movies I liked: A Knight’s Tale, Vanilla Sky and 16 Years of Alcohol. I’ll probably give Black Box a try when it airs.

  • Lydia was simply a very compelling character with her minor ticks and eccentricities. I’m definitely excited for this new show, especially with Redgrave in it as well.
