Aaron Paul Sturtevant is an American actor who starred as Jesse Pinkman in the AMC series Breaking Bad. He won the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his work in Season 3 and Season 4 of Breaking Bad.


Born in Idaho to a retired Baptist minister, Aaron got started in acting with his family's church. In high school he fell in love with the prospect of being an actor and moved to L.A. after graduating.

Aaron held dozens of roles on a variety of TV shows until he caught his first break and was cast in a recurring role on HBO's Big Love. His big break came the following year when he was cast as Jesse on Breaking Bad.

He married Lauren Corinne Parsekian on May 26, 2013.

He played the psychopath, Francis, in the remake of the 1972 film, The Last House on the Left, in 2009.

Aaron and Giancarlo Esposito worked together previously on the Ghost Whisperer episode "Fury" in 2006.



  • In early 2000 Aaron was a contestant on "The Price Is Right". Though his flamboyant behavior was the most memorable part as he screamed his admiration to Bob Barker as he jumped around the set and actually made Mr. Barker a little tense the whole segment. Sadly, Aaron lost the prize but was allowed to go take a spin on the wheel. (The Video Here:
  • He played a psychopath in the 2009 remake of the the 1972 film, The Last House on the Left, playing opposite Michael Bowen, in a minor role.  His character, Francis, along with a gang of psychopaths, brutally murders Michael Bowen's character, Morton.
  • He has the words "No Half Measures" tattooed on his biceps, in reference to the episode of the same name, and the famous conversation between Walt and Mike Ehrmantraut.
