The Walking Dead Q&A – Tyler James Williams (Noah)

the-walking-dead-episode-514-noah-williams-325Tyler James Williams, who plays Noah on AMC’s The Walking Dead, talks about how he called his character’s death and shares his brilliant plan for hiding out from walkers.

Q: How long did you know in advance what would happen to Noah?

A: You have to deal with the paranoia that everyone else has and it can happen at any moment. I had a feeling, as much as I love this character, that he was going to go. I called it before Scott Gimple announced it to everyone.

Q: A ton happened to Noah in a few short episodes – helping Beth, finding his family, and dying – which was the hardest to film?

A: I’d have to say Tyreese’s death [in Episode 509] was probably hardest because it was so much to run over, quickly. At the top of the episode, Noah’s incredibly hopeful that he’s going to get back to his family. His goal is to meet up with his people and leave Rick and the crew and that’s it, but then he has this devastating breakdown. His place has been ransacked, then he sees his dead mother just lying there and – before he could fully mourn that – one of the people who protected him is possibly dying, when they just lost someone else two weeks ago. There was a lot going on in that episode for him that wasn’t processed until later.

Q: Can you talk more about that scene when Noah discovered he’s lost his family and community? Was that a tough scene to film?

Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride Discuss Alexandria; Lauren Cohan Talks to People

the-walking-dead-episode-513-carol-mcbride-325x200This week, Norman Reedus and Melissa McBride discuss Alexandria with various news outlets, while Lauren Cohan talks to People about her scaredy-cat tendencies. Plus, Steven Yeun salutes The Walking Dead‘s women in Cosmopolitan. Read on for more:

• Norman Reedus says to Entertainment Weekly that Daryl’s wary of Alexandria because “I don’t think he trusts people right off the bat. There’s another element to it: I don’t think Daryl would have liked living in a suburban housing development even before the zombie apocalypse.”

• Interviewed by Entertainment Weekly about Carol threatening Sam, Melissa McBride declares it’s “not unlike her teaching the children how to protect themselves. This child is unaware of this threat that is out there. They’re sheltered. They don’t know what’s going on.”

• People interviews Lauren Cohan, who says Maggie “is in support of the group finding peace in this town [Alexandria] and a safe hold.”
