Work on the fifth season of Breaking Bad is well underway. Already we know that the cast and crew have received the premiere episode script (Aaron Paul raved about it), and now we’re hearing about a new character!

TV Line has learned that the show is looking to cast the following character:

The show is introducing a major new character named Lydia. She’s described as a brittle, smart businesswoman and mother who is going through a challenging time. Producers are looking for an “Amy Ryan/Jodie Foster” type for the series regular role. Ooooh, I know the perfect actress for the part: Amy Ryan! Genius idea, right?

Lydia sounds interesting – could she possibly be the new person who’ll replace Gus as an epic enemy?
