Aaron Paul, star of the hit TV series Breaking Bad, has urged Irish people to follow their dreams.
The actor was in Ireland as an ambassador for a competition from American beer giant, Budweiser. Irish Entrants to Budweiser’s Dream Job Will be in with a chance to win €50,000 to kick start their dream career.
Competition entrants must explain what their dream job would be. Judges will then select the finalists who wil be invited to make a short film with Budweiser.
The winner will then be voted by the public and announced by Paul.
The Jesse Pinkman actor told the Irish Examiner: “Who doesn’t have a dream? Or a dream job? Budweiser is offering this up on a platter. Why wouldn’t you want to jump at it? Anything is possible if you believe it is and if you believe in yourself.”
Paul made the most of his trip to Ireland and visited sights such as Castle Bellingham in Louth and Bective Abbey in Co Meath. He also enjoyed a pub crawl around Dublin and drank with fans in bars such as O’Donoghue’s, The Dean, Dicey’s, and 37 Dawdon St.
During his stay he visited the Olympia to see The Walworth Farce – a play starring Irish movie star Brendan Gleeson and his sons Domhnall and Brian.
Paul was suitably impressed and said: “The writing, directing and of course every single performance in this play blew me away. Hands down one of the most amazing things that I have ever witnessed.
“The Gleeson boys have something magical running through their veins and are sharing it with all of us on stage at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin. If you are in Ireland over the next month this is the number 1 thing you should do. Thank you to all for this incredible production.”
The actor added that he would love return to film a movie in the future saying: “any excuse to come to Ireland is a good one.”
We might be waiting a while for that to happen as Paul has a busy 2015 ahead of him with a number of films set for release including Fathers and Daughters with Russell Crow and Triple Nine with Woody Harrelson and Kate Winslet.
