Breaking Bad star Steven Michael Quezada has won a position on the U.S. School Board in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The 49-year-old native, who has filmed the hit crime thriller in the state since 2008, revealed last month (Jan13) that he wanted to represent a newly-created district in the city's growing West Side, where three of his children are currently enrolled in school.
He was running unopposed for the seat - and the Associated Press reports that on Tuesday (05Feb13) he officially landed the position.
Quezada had previously declared, "This is my home and where I want to work. We're hurting out here and we need people who can go out and engage our community. I think it's my destiny to do that... I believe I'm in a position to help kids and my community. Education is the best way to ensure our future."
The film will be the first in the Marvel Cinematic Universe led by a person of colour.
The actor plays the titular hero in the forthcoming adaptation.
Rock legend Eric Clapton has admitted the era of the guitar may be ''over''.
Following his success with 'The Force Awakens', the director will close out the trilogy.
