The Walking Dead Q&A – Ross Marquand (Aaron)

the-walking-dead-episode-512-aaron-marquand-325Ross Marquand, who plays Aaron on AMC’s The Walking Dead, talks about keeping his role on the show a secret and whether the group should trust Aaron.

Q: Your arrival was a big deal among fans. What’s it like being the subject of intense discussion?

A: I’ve been following along and it’s fantastic; and of course it’s sparking a little bit of debate in terms of whether we can trust Aaron, if it’s going to closely mirror the comics or if it’s going to go in a totally different direction. It’s wonderful and it’s strange, too, because I’ve been a fan of the show since the beginning. So, to go from mainlining Season 4 two weeks before I got cast to actually being on the show is bewildering in the best way.

Q: What’s the biggest difference between watching the show as a fan and acting in front of the camera?

A: I’ll be honest. I was freaking out! It’s one of my favorite shows and I want to do it justice, but I also have a great deal of professional regard for the actors on the show. I wanted to make sure I was doing my part to help facilitate the story and that I’m adding to something big.

Q: What was your first day on set like? Did any of the cast members give you advice?

Andrew Lincoln, Danai Gurira Discuss Alexandria; Flaunt Features Norman Reedus

the-walking-dead-episode-512-michone-gurira-rick-lincoln-carol-mcbride-325This week, Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira discuss Alexandria, while Flaunt features Norman Reedus in a photo shoot. Plus, Ross Marquand provides some insight into Aaron and talks about playing the show’s first gay male character. Read on for more:

• Talking to The Hollywood Reporter about the group’s ability to fit into Alexandria, Andrew Lincoln says, “That’s the landscape that we’re investigating: whether these people are able to integrate anymore. Whether they are social animals; whether they can be recognized as social human beings anymore.”

TV Guide interviews Danai Gurira, who points out that Michonne trusted Aaron because the group is “in a dire circumstance and she can see that. It’s dire in terms of the literal conditions, but aspects of the humanity of the group were also starting to concern her.”

• For a Flaunt photo shoot, Norman Reedus explains, “I have to say that as far as my working life, I became really at ease and comfortable and proud of my work when I got to Georgia. It all kind of fell into place there.”
