PaleyFest: On The Red Carpet with The Cast of The Walking Dead
About the phenomenon of The Walking Dead
Andrew Lincoln: I think the first time someone showed me my face tattoo on their leg is probably the most overwhelming thing ever happened to me and probably ever will happen to me. I think it was last year at Comic Con, or maybe two years ago. It’s astonishing!
About Carol’s return, and the looming aspect of the banishment
Andrew Lincoln: It will be on soon in the first episode tomorrow night. (October 12th)
About Rick’s character in Season 5
Andrew Lincoln: Butt kicking Rick is exactly what I’m gonna be doing.
Advice to give to someone if they were in a relationship during the apocalypse.
Andrew Lincoln: Keep the person alive, for one, would be the first priority.
Norman Reedus was up next and he answered some questions
Working with Melissa McBride
Norman Reedus: You know, I started off with Melissa and I not really knowing each other, then learning together… She was kind of like my scene partner. We became very close and I respect her as an actor. Not only do our characters have a lot in common, she’s my buddy and I care a lot about her.
On Michael Cudlitz (Plays Sgt. Abraham Ford)
Norman Reedus: Who’s Michael? [Laughs] He’s an alright guy. I mean, I like Michael. He’s a lot of fun. I like him as an actor and I’m sure at some point I’d fuck with Michael. [Laughs]
Working with the cast of The Walking Dead
Norman Reedus: There’s such great energy because we all are such good friends.
As the rest of the cast were headed to the panel, we got a chance to chat with Chad L. Coleman who plays Tyreese.
About Season 5
Chad L. Coleman: Anyone could be a threat. Anything is possibility.
Teasers for Season Premiere
Chad L. Coleman: Wow. Everybody is going to hell real fast, I’m telling you. [Laughs] Things go bad real quick, trust me. [Laughs]
The Walking Dead season premiere is back tonight (October 12th) at 9PM on AMC!
