Residents were left shocked and delighted after spotting the star nearly 5,000 miles from his American home.

His wife Lauren Paul has now shared snaps from their holiday and spoken of her love of Whitstable, in posts to her 511k followers on Instagram.

The director and actor, 35, shared a photo of her husband sitting on a window ledge looking out across the sea as the sun went down, along with a series of sunset pictures.

She wrote: “For 15 nights, we sat in this exact spot to watch the sunset.

“Most of the time we talked, but sometimes we didn’t.

“Sometimes we just watched and listened. It’s nice, the quiet. Not feeling the need to fill a space with words.

“We all talk too much. Scream. About everything. All the time. Without even thinking.

“Find someplace beautiful and take a pause. You probably need it. I needed it.

“I’ll think about this window for the rest of my life and the gentle pause it gave me during a time that constantly feels out of breath.”

The couple married in 2013 and have two children together.

She added: “Witstable has some of the most gorgeous sunsets I’ve ever seen.”

In one photo, a bottle of Dos Hombres – Aaron Paul’s own Mexican-style mezcal created with his Breaking Bad co-star Bryan Cranston – can be seen on the table beside him.

During his stay in Whitstable Paul, 42, visited liquor shop The Offy, where he bought a bottle of the £77 booze.

Speaking to KentOnline at the time, shop manager Ross Bell, 50, described the unexpected visit as “utterly random”.

“I think he’s seen a liquor store and come in on the off-chance we stock his mezcal,” he said.

“I saw him out of the corner of my eye and thought ‘nah, it can’t be him’.

“But then he pointed up at the Dos Hombres and went to his wife ‘hey, baby, they’ve got it’. He looked absolutely thrilled.

“He said thanks very much for stocking his drink and then asked if he could take a photo with me and the bottle – maybe even to send to Bryan Cranston to say ‘look how far our drink has made it, to a little town in Kent ‘.

“He then returned the favor and had a selfie with us.”

As well as his leading role in Breaking Bad – widely regarded as one of the best TV series ever made – Emmy Award-winning Paul also starred in the spin-off movie El Camino.

He also appears in the HBO science fiction western series Westworld.

Mr Ross said: “He was so lovely – a real, real sweetheart. He took photos with other people in the shop as well, and was really humble.

“It’s great to have had a proper A-lister in your shop.”
