How did you get you role on The Walking Dead?
I was asked by the casting agency that hired me for Zombieland.
Did you read the graphic novel prior to getting a role in the show?
Yes. I did. I bought the first Compendium, with the first 48 issues, before working my first day on set. After working in the first 2 episodes, I worked the remainder of the season to get autographs from everyone on my compendium to donate to charity.
What are some of the walkers you potrayed?
I worked in episodes 1, 2, 5&6 of Season 1 and I also worked in episodes 1, 13 & all of the barn episodes in Season 2.
Do you have any interesting or funny stories to tell that occurred in the process of filming the show?
Sure I do. One of my favorite stories to tell, was during the filming of episode 2, of Season 1. We were shooting a scene on Mitchell Street in Atlanta, and some lady was walking on set not knowing we were filming a zombie show. She was pretty startled. It was funny, she was on her way to a hair appointment, but during location shoots, like this one. We close all the businesses for the day to film, I guess no one told her.
Did you enjoy being on the show?
Of course. It's always exciting to be a part of something special. Knowing how well it resonates with fans, makes it a really big project that I was proud to be a part of.
Are you currently working on any other projects?
No. My last project shot in February. I worked on an episode of Devious Maids. I have other things working as possibilities, but I never count on them until I'm actually on set filming.
