Breaking Bad star urges unvaccinated people to 'go to small island'

Breaking Bad star Giancarlo Esposito has claimed the best way to deal with those opposed to getting vaccines would be to put them together on a ‘small island’.

The Better Call Saul actor, who plays Gus Fring, shared his thoughts in The Hollywood Reporter’s feature about the chaos being caused by some stars who refuse to get the Covid-19 vaccine.

Due to the fact there is no universal vaccine mandate in place on sets amid the coronavirus pandemic, there have been production delays amid constant positive tests on various sets.

The 63-year-old made it clear he did not agree with those to go to work without being vaccinated as he told the THR: ‘If you don’t want to vaccinate, go to a small island and sequester yourself.

‘[Otherwise] you’re saying “F**k you” to all you other human beings. We all have to do it if we want to live.’

The Mandalorian star continued: ‘I don’t understand how people don’t vaccinate. For me, I’ve lost dear friends, so I know it’s real.

‘Not only in Europe but in America, friends who were completely healthy and uncompromised. The vaccine is the answer.’

The actor insisted he was not ‘downing anyone who doesn’t want to vaccinate’ and suggested: ‘Don’t work. Go ride it out somewhere where you’re not going to compromise anyone else if you get it.’

As noted by THR, production sets have become a ‘Hollywood battlefield’ due to some members of cast and crew being dismissive of vaccines and mask use.

The unexpected production delays have been resulting in high costs and losses for production companies.

George Clooney also spoke about the topic to the publication, as he claimed it was ‘crazy’ and ‘stupid’ for people in the industry to refuse the vaccine even when it would impact others.

The Ocean’s Eleven star stated: ‘And it’s stupid because every generation in our country for more than a lifetime has been asked to sacrifice something for the safety of their fellow man — get shot, fight Nazis.

‘All that anyone’s being asked here is to get a shot in the arm and put on a mask. Grow up. Get something done.’

Meanwhile, Giancarlo has recalled the ‘traumatic’ moment his Better Call Saul co-star Bob Odenkirk collapsed on the set of the Breaking Bad spin-off, expressing how ‘shocked’ he was by how quickly his co-star bounced back.
