Breaking Bad’s Walter White Junior is taking runways by storm!
by Laetitia Wong
Little Walter White Junior ain’t so junior anymore! Actor RJ Mitte made his runway debut for Vivienne Westwood at Men’s Fashion Week in Milan this Monday, sporting breast-plate vests and floral sandals. How quaint!
We’re definitely loving this 22-year old dipping his toe into modelling, having starred in a Gap campaign in 2014, pouting at the camera while clad in denim. Not only did the talented young lad open and close the entire show, but he even clinched a contract with Elite Model Management last November. Talk about being multifaceted!
Mitte is widely known for his portrayal of Bryan Cranston’s son, Walter White Junior, aka. Flynn, on AMC’s tremendously addictive series Breaking Bad, where he plays a character with impaired motor skills and slurred speech difficulties due to cerebral palsy, and required Mitte to use a pair of crutches throughout the 5 seasons of the show. Similarly, Mitte was diagnosed with a milder form of the illness, and used crutches growing up.
What do you think of the collection? But more importantly, what do you think of the adorable Mitte? It’s hard to see him in a sex-symbol light now, post-Breaking Bad, isn’t it? Well, that isn’t stopping us!
