Breaking Bad’s Walt Jr actor RJ Mitte looks very different 9yrs on from iconic TV show

BREAKING Bad's Walt Jr actor RJ Mitte looks worlds away from his onscreen character nine years after the iconic TV show ended.

RJ, 28, became a household name thanks to his role in the crime drama TV series that starred Bryan Cranston as his father.

He played the character, who like him has cerebral palsy, on the hit show for five years.

Walt Jr quickly became loved by viewers who watched as he grows up trying to keep his family together and maintain a teenage life.

But nine years on, the TV star now looks very different from his former Breaking Bad days.

RJ regularly takes to Instagram to post snaps of his daily life as he continues to work on screen, most recently starring in the 2021 drama, Triumph, where he plays disabled teen Mike, who is determined to be a wrestler.

RJ's Instagram is littered with snaps of him hanging out with his adorable dogs, prepping for acting roles, and globe-trotting with his pals.

But the star has well and truly shed his sweet and heartwarming Walt Jr character and has morphed into a handsome young man, even landing himself a career as a fashion model.

The actor even opened and closed the Vivienne Westwood men's show in Milan in 2015.

RJ has signed with Elite Models, has fronted a Gap campaign, and is often spotted sitting front row at various fashion shows.

The TV star recently teased that his Breaking Bad character Walt Junior might even get his own spin-off series.

Speaking to The Metro last year, RJ said: "You never know! That story is still there and it’s not over. Better Call Saul is wrapping up its final season now and El Camino was great, so who knows?"

He continued: "I love my character but they’ll probably wait until I’m 40 to bring him back.

"I’ll be bald and portly with one crutch, smoking a cigar and demanding to know where my breakfast is."
