The Walking Dead Q&A – Melissa McBride (Carol)

the-walking-dead-episode-506-carol-mcbride-325-1Melissa McBride, who plays Carol on AMC’s The Walking Dead, talks about filming her action-packed Season 5 scenes and how Carol has changed since Season 1.

Q: Tell us more about the scene in the Season 5 premiere where you’re walking among zombies who are covered in flames, gun in your hand, after you’ve just caused the Terminus explosion. How bad-ass did you feel?

A: [Laughs.] Well, it was frightening because she could have been mistaken for a walker. She’s thinking, “I’m going to do the best I can here and hopefully make it out alive,” but there was a very good chance that anything could happen. It was awesome shooting all of that – the sequences of going into Terminus, the explosion, walking with walkers on fire, the fight with Mary, the reunion – just all of it. There wasn’t any part of “me” or Carol feeling bad-ass. It was about not knowing any different. This is what she had to do. It’s where we are.

Q: Did you have to go through any training for your fight with Mary in Terminus?

A: Mary and I did tumble around on the floor quite a bit, but the stunt double went into those candle holders. They didn’t want to take any chance of us landing wrong or catching on fire. They are very well-trained and did such an amazing job. We just picked up from where they landed on the floor.

Q: In Episode 506, Carol talks about all these identities of herself that have “burned away.” Have you ever experienced something like that, changing so much that the person you were no longer exists?

the-walking-dead-episode-506-carol-mcbride-325This week, Melissa McBride chats with Entertainment Weekly about last week’s episode, while Robert Kirkman previews the midseason finale with The Hollywood Reporter. Plus, Steven Yeun does a Funny or Die skit. Read on for more:

Entertainment Weekly interviews Melissa McBride, who says she loved the theme and title of “Consumed” because “I love what it symbolizes, and even the dreamy music of Bear McCreary was just beautiful. And I don’t think I’ve seen an episode where so much of it is underscored.”

The Hollywood Reporter learns from Robert Kirkman that there will be “some pretty unexpected events in our midseason finale, which is as it should be. On a scale of one to 10, I’d say [the midseason finale] is pretty deadly.”

• Steven Yeun shows up in his very own Funny or Die skit titled “What’s Eating Steven Yeun,” according to ComicBook.com.

the-walking-dead-episode-505-abraham-cudlitz-3-325This week, Michael Cudlitz and Josh McDermitt deconstruct the latest episode, “Self Help,” while Entertainment Weekly speculates that this season may be The Walking Dead‘s best ever. Plus, Danai Gurira is this month’s Bello cover story. Read on for more:

• Michael Cudlitz and Josh McDermitt give TVGuide.com the scoop on “Self Help,” with Cudlitz noting Abraham and Eugene’s “very interesting symbiotic relationship. Let’s not forget that Eugene saved his life. At some point, I’m hoping Abraham will realize that.”

• Entertainment Weekly speculates that Season 5 “could be shaping up to be the best Walking Dead season ever” and explains why.

The Walking Dead Q&A – Michael Cudlitz (Abraham Ford)

the-walking-dead-episode-505-abraham-cudlitz-325-1Michael Cudlitz, who plays Abraham Ford on AMC’s The Walking Dead, talks about Eugene‘s (Josh McDermitt) secret and who would win in a brawl between Abraham and Rick (Andrew Lincoln).

Q: We get a peek into Abraham’s back story in Episode 505. Were you given a lot of information ahead of time or did you find out more about him as you went along?

A: When I was first hired, I asked Scott [Gimple] if there was a need for me to read the comic books, to which he responded, “Absolutely.” Abraham’s back story is very, very similar to what happens in the comics. It’s emotionally dead-on. There’s a lot of value in having the audience understand what pushes him forward.

Q: Abraham probably reaches his lowest point when he realizes Eugene is a fraud. What advice would you give Abraham?

A: I have not experienced a loss like Abraham has. I don’t know if too many people have. It may be the lowest point, but it just means that things cannot and will not get any worse. That being said, there’s got to be hope.

Q: Were you as shocked as Abraham was to find out Eugene isn’t a real scientist?
