The Walking Dead Q&A – Seth Gilliam (Gabriel Stokes)

The-Walking-Dead-Season-5-Gabriel-Gilliam-325Seth Gilliam, who plays Gabriel Stokes on AMC’s The Walking Dead, talks about killing his first walker on set and Andrew Lincoln‘s superhuman commitment to the show.

Q: You actually didn’t know you were reading for the part of Father Gabriel during your audition. When were you told who you would be playing? Did you have any guesses beforehand?

A: I didn’t have any guesses beforehand. I was told about a week before I came down to start shooting. I started with a blank slate. I didn’t know anything about the character and just went off of what was on the page.

Q: Have you found any similarities between you and your character as you get to know him?

A: With every character that you play, you try to find what [characteristics] like you are in them and hopefully there’s a little something to use. I think there are some qualities in Father Gabriel that we share, but I imagine he exorcised those before all of the wonderful walkers came along.

Q: When we first meet Gabriel, it’s clear he isn’t fit for fighting off a walker. How do you think you’d fare against one?

The Walking Dead Q&A – Josh McDermitt (Eugene)

the-walking-dead-episode-505-eugene-porter-325Josh McDermitt, who plays Eugene on AMC’s The Walking Dead, talks about embracing his mullet and keeping his character’s secret.

Q: Tara calls Eugene’s mullet a “source of power.” Has it become a part of you?

A: It has absolutely become a part of me, not just Eugene. I feel naked without it at this point. They’ve let my hair grow out so it kind of looks like I have a baby mullet. I can’t get away from Eugene.

Q: Eugene’s no good at killing walkers. How would you fare during a zombie apocalypse? Could you take care of yourself?

A: I would like to think that I would be an epic bad ass – someone like Daryl or Abraham – but I actually feel I would be worse than Eugene. A lot of people have this perception of how they would be in certain situations because they would never experience those situations. I’m slowly coming to the realization that I would just be the biggest pussy in the world.

Q: Eugene tells the others he’s smarter than everyone and a good liar. If you were to choose two attributes to describe yourself, which would they be?

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?
