Norman Reedus and Steven Yeun of The Walking Dead came out to support fellow AMC show Breaking Bad at its Comic-Con premiere, and we chatted with both of the guys on the red carpet. Listen in as they talk about the best — and worst — thing about filming the hit zombie series, and who they think will be the last man standing when all the other characters are killed off.
Has there ever been a time when you have been reading one of the scripts and something has really surprised even you? I saw a scene the other day with Sarah that had nothing to do with zombies or murder or blood and we were all like this, oh my gosh. Because the acting was so real and good that it was like I couldn't even watch the second take it was just too awesome. I think it was, yeah, I mean we do a lot of the zombie stuff, so when we get quieter really, really psychological messed-up stuff that tends to hit harder for us. Well this is obviously show with great writing, but it's also something I would imagine is kind of difficult to film. So, what's the best and worst part about filming a show like this? The worst part is people have to die because it's a zombie show and that stinks,the best part is we've become really close. Yeah, we all of us are really good friends. Well, as you said, a lot of people die, who do you think is gonna last person standing when all of this is over? Why do you say him? I mean, he's indestructible. He drives a motorcycle and he can look as dirty as hell and every single girls still want to jump on him so I think he's got it. I think him because he's smarter than Darrell. Oh, he's going He's really nice. He's street smart but, you know, he's faster, he knows where all the goodies are. And, you know, he's got a love interest and Darrell's his lonely, you know. Yeah. We did see you fall in love this past season. Can you tell us anything about where that's gonna go? I think with all of us as a group and especially that relationship, survival is key and survival brings people together a lot more then normal.
