The Walking Dead: Robert Kirkman's Episode


IGN talks to Robert Kirkman about writing his first ever
Walking Dead TV script, "Vatos," and about revisiting
the dreaded camp attack.

And just when you thought the zombies might have taken a bit of a backseat role in AMC's The Walking Dead…the camp attack happens. Fans of the comic series were certainly reminded, this past Sunday night, of how brutally powerful that scene was back when they first read it. The episode "Vatos" not only introduced us to new characters while simultaneously "thinning the herd," but it also marked Walking Dead comic series creator Robert Kirkman's first foray into television writing. With a script penned by Kirkman himself, Rick, Glenn and Daryl encountered a tough-as-nails Hispanic gang with eyes on Rick's guns.

(You can check out the IGN TV Review of "Vatos" here!)

IGN had a chance to talk to Robert Kirkman himself about the process of writing his first ever TV script and about revisiting the horrific camp attack scene from a new televisual perspective.

Q&A - Emma Bell (Amy)


November 22, 2010

Image

The Walking Dead actress describes the terror of being eaten by a walker, the joy of mermaids and Renaissance Fairs and the danger of talking to fanboys on three hours of sleep.


Q: In 2010's Frozen you were the only character to survive. Here you were the first lead character to die. How did those experiences compare?

A: In Frozen, my character has to watch the other two people that she's with die -- but there was this desire to keep moving and keep going. With Amy, the reverse happened. I'm on the ground looking up at the stars, and Laurie Holden, who plays my sister, is crying her eyes out over me. But after that sadness came a relief, almost. It just became, "Oh I feel so bad for everyone else."

Q&A - Laurie Holden (Andrea)


November 29, 2010

Image

The actress describes the sisterly bond she formed with Emma Bell (Amy), the similarities between herself and Andrea and how Michael Jackson helps her relieve stress after a long day of shooting.


Q: I understand that you and Emma Bell, who played your sister, became very close on-set. Did that make Amy's death easier or harder to portray?

A: From the moment we met, we got along like a house on fire. I always wanted a little sister and she always wanted a big sister so we kind of adopted each other. And we did everything off set together. We were inseparable. People were like, "Oh my God, you two."

Q&A - Jon Bernthal (Shane)


December 6, 2010

Image

The Walking Dead actor describes shooting the boss's daughter for the Season Finale and explains why he considers himself the cast member best prepared to survive a zombie apocalypse.


Q: You used to be a professional baseball player. Now you're killing zombies for a living. Any other boyhood fantasies you're planning to fulfill?

A: [Laughs] I remember being a little kid and going to the doctor's office and reading this Babe Ruth cartoon. There was this shot of Babe Ruth leaning up against this wall eating a hot dog, and he goes, "What in the world could be better than this? I get paid to sit around, play baseball, and eat hot dogs." And I remember thinking: Wow, that's really it. If you can figure out how to get paid to do something you love that's the dream. It was baseball for a while, but finding [acting] blows baseball out of the water. This is really my dream.

I finally got around to watching the last two episodes and when I first saw the scenes of the scientist at the CDC, (Episode 105) the first thing I thought of was the show Survivors that aired earlier this year on BBC America. If you liked "The Walking Dead", I'm pretty sure you'll like Survivors too. I can't wait for more episodes of both shows.

Q&A - IronE Singleton (T-Dog)


January 10, 2011

Image

On Tue., Jan. 18 at 8/7c AMC begins a two-night encore of the entire first season of The Walking Dead. As part of The Walking Dead encore experience, AMCtv.com will be posting interviews with the show's talented supporting cast. This week, actor IronE Singleton compares growing up in the projects with The Walking Dead, explains how football prepared him for on-screen violence and theorizes what's behind the name T-Dog.


Q: You grew up in Atlanta. What was it like returning there to shoot The Walking Dead?

A: It was surreal. Although the buildings have been torn down since then, it was an inner city housing project that was really dilapidated. I lived that life for so many years, trying to avoid violence and the drug epidemic, and here I was working on a major Hollywood production.

Q&A - Andrew Rothenberg (Jim)


January 17, 2011

Image

This Tue., Jan. 18 at 8/7c AMC begins a two-night encore of the entire first season of The Walking Dead. As part of The Walking Dead encore experience, AMCtv.com will be posting interviews with the show's talented supporting cast. This week, actor Andrew Rothenberg relates his personal experience with premonitions, describes a near-death experience and shares his strategy of killing walkers with comedy.


Q: As someone who earns a living emoting, is it hard to play a character who holds so much back?

A: It's not. I enjoy saving it. I think it makes it more intriguing to the audience because they want to know what is going on in that person. I used to work with Michael Shannon in Chicago and he would say to me, "Put a fire under it Rothenberg," because I was always quiet and reserved and then I would find my moment and let it out. That said, I've done a lot of roles where I'm the crazy crackhead or the loud boisterous villain. When I'm given the opportunity to let loose and go nuts I love it.

Surviving every day life can be a chore under the best of circumstances. Surviving the zombie apocalypse? Well...

But don't take our word for it: Listen to the cast of The Walking Dead, who have experienced the apocalypse first-hand and lived long enough to share some survival tips.

The CDC (the Real One) Publishes Recommendations for a Zombie Apocalypse


Image

When Rick and his fellow survivors arrive at the CDC in Season 1 of The Walking Dead, they find an abandoned building manned by the solitary Dr. Jenner -- who's learned almost nothing about the walker disease, let alone how to cure it. Apparently, the real-life Centers for Disease Control has taken umbrage with the this portrayal of ineffectiveness: This week the agency released a protocol titled "Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse."

Dispatches From the Set - Writer, Director and Executive Producer Frank Darabont


Image

The Walking Dead's Writer, Director and Executive Producer Frank Darabont describes the splendor and horror of Season 2's main set-piece, hints at upcoming tensions among Lori, Rick and Shane and explains why sometimes being the boss bites. New Dispatches From the Set are released every week throughout the production.


Q: How are the first weeks of production going?

A: Tough! It's a very challenging show to do, and this is why it really helps to have a fantastic crew and a really great director. The time I spent on the set was reasonably minimal because I was out scouting other locations and going through a bit of prep, so there's a lot of tromping through fields and picking ticks out of me when I got back to my room. You probably should know that the cast and crew are braving heat, humidity, ticks, every source of disgust you could imagine -- all to entertain you for an hour a week. [Laughs]
