The Walking Dead Cast Interviews

October 16, 2013

The Walking Dead
The Walking Dead has finally started Season 4, and Rolling Stone has put together some great interviews with Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes), Chandler Riggs (Carl Grimes), Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon), Melissa McBride (Carol), and David Morrissey (The Governor). 
Here's an excerpt from the interview with Andrew Lincoln...head over to RollingStone.com for all the rest.

How do you like living in Atlanta?
I love it here. It's a city of transplants. People bond easily. We lucked out with this job being here. A lot of the success of the show is the fact that it's based down here. It's not in LA. We're in this crazy bubble. You do really get that sense that we're all refugees somewhere. Your free time is occupied with your new friends as well. So you do bond on that level. Sarah Wayne Callies became hugely important when she was cast. She had a young family, a daughter the same age as my daughter. Her daughter is playing at my house now. So believe it when we say it is a family show. For us, it is.

What were you into as a kid? 
Anything. I'm a magpie, and that's probably why I love acting so much. I get into hobbies very easily and probably don't stay with them. One of the most exciting parts of getting a new job is the research, reading around the subject, trying to absorb it. History turns me on. I was terrible at it at school, but as I get older, I get more and more into it. My brother was a voracious reader. But I was always of the opinion, "I want to live it! I don't want to read about it!" That was my excuse, anyway. Since then, that's all I do.

You haven't done much apart from the show since it began. Knowing now that it's in your nature to lose interest in things quickly, are you getting antsy to do other stuff? 
Yeah, I am. I'm actively looking for roles now. There will come a point where I'll just want to do something completely different. The difficulty is you get visible in one thing and people go, "Well, let's give him what he can do."
