Jesse Bruce Pinkman is a fictional character in Breaking Bad, played by Aaron Paul. He is a crystal meth cook and dealer, and works with his former high school chemistry teacher, Walter White (Bryan Cranston) in a meth operation. Jesse is the only character besides Walt to appear in every episode of the show.
The character has received praise from critics and fans alike. Paul has also received universal acclaim for his performance. For his portrayal, Paul won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series in 2010, 2012, and 2014 -- which makes him the only actor to win the category three times, since its separation into drama and comedy. Back when the categories were combined, Art Carney and Don Knotts won three as well, which ties Paul for the most wins in the award's history.
