While plugging his new action flick Godzilla on CNN Thursday, Cranston indulged host Ashleigh Banfield’s questions about whether Heisenberg might’ve lived through what — to most of the audience — seemed like his final moments at the end of the AMC series’ finale.

Though cancer sufferer/gunshot victim Walter fell to the ground as the police narrowed in on him, Cranston reluctantly acknowledged that there’s the tiniest of chances the chemistry-teacher-turned-meth-maker might’ve survived.

“You never saw a bag zip up or anything,” he says, smiling. “Never say never.”

Also in the interview, Cranston discusses playing The X-Files‘ Patrick Crump, a one-off role for which “I just happened to have the right hair” — and which first put him into contact with Vince Gilligan, his future Bad boss.
