ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Albuquerque now knows him as an APS school board member. The rest of the world knows him as Steven Michael Quezada, actor and star player in a dramatic shootout in the latest episode of “Breaking Bad.”
With the show about to wrap up for good, he's getting swamped with people asking, "What happens next?' "
These days, it's not necessarily easy to be a school board member for Quezada because the last time many people saw him, he was in a dramatic shoot-out seen by millions. He's also known as Agent Gomez in "Breaking Bad."
With just three episodes left in the show's history, Gomez was at the center of Sunday's cliff-hanger, a big time shootout in To'hajilee that ends with lots of questions for fans.
“I thought it turned out really cool!” Quezada said. “It was almost that modern western style out in the desert.”
The episode, and how the show itself ends, is a closely-guarded secret.
“Yeah, they want to know!” Quezada said. “And I go, ‘you don't want to know! Nobody wants to know!’ ”
Quezada says balancing "Breaking Bad" with his regular life can be a bit of a challenge.
“I balance them like everyone else,” he says, adding he's just happy to be doing two things he's passionate about.
“It was just an honor to be out there with Dean [Norris] and Bryan [Cranston] and Aaron [Paul] and all of us in the same scene which Gomez doesn't really get a lot of that,” Quezada said.
On Tuesday, Quezada was at a special event at West Mesa High School in the role of school board member. The next time many locals will see him is next Sunday, when "Breaking Bad" fans find out who walks away alive.
Quezada says he's working on pitching a new TV series called “Duke City.”
He wouldn't say much more than that, other than he hopes to see New Mexico and its film industry continue to grow.
As an APS board member, Quezada represents a portion of southwest Albuquerque. He's held that position since February.
