Walter White may be out from under the thumb of Gus Fring, but he won't be completely rid of him on Season 5 of "Breaking Bad."

The AMC series has cast Laura Fraser ("The Boys Are Back," "A Knight's Tale") in what creator Vince Gilligan calls an "important" role for Season 5, EW reports. She'll play Lydia, a former associate of Fring's (Giancarlo Esposito) who comes into Walt's (Bryan Cranston) orbit and is both "integral to the proceedings of season 5" and "nervous about her place in the world," Gilligan says.

She joins fellow newcomer Jesse Plemons ("Friday Night Lights") in the Season 5 cast. Lydia makes her first appearance in the second episode.

Fraser, a native of Scotland, has also appeared in "Vanilla Sky," "Titus" and the HBO movie "Iron Jawed Angels," in addition to several TV series in the U.K.

"Breaking Bad" premieres at 10 p.m. Et July 15 on AMC. »
