Things for having me cell let's talk about -- season -- so far congratulations on the success.
Other the premier and the popularity of the show to this point seven.
Credit this six asked -- I mean it's become a real fan favorite.
You you know I think you know for in terms of how what the show is to people I think it's really something that.
-- stands out in in life right now I think.
This kind of this terminal feeling.
Maybe that you -- apocalypse could happen anytime soon and I think it's nice for people to be able to see that.
Even if it is -- zombies on television and as for the -- I mean.
-- -- wonderful senate producers and writers and actors so it's it's really fun tend to do and I think people are really seeing are what they were putting into it.
And has a built in audience not just for the zombie genre but also because is based on -- graphic novel not already had an audience.
Sell -- tell us where we are in this story so far and tell us about your character Glen he's been on quite a journey -- Well in the beginning.
I live of the series and the first season you find a group of survivors in Atlanta they're trying to survive a a zombie apocalypse.
And in the second season you see this same group kind of picking up the file where they had found some may be somewhat safety.
And try to find a -- a place to plant their roots.
And -- find a farm and there on this farm and trouble.
Obviously ensues when you know resources are limited and people are pitted up against other people and people are vying for power -- grandstands is.
I played a character Glenn who.
You know if he doesn't really have much to -- for.
I think he kind of lost everything when the apocalypse happened and so he kind of -- up upon himself to prove himself because he didn't really have anything going -- in the past so.
He -- always signs up to do these crazy things is it really valuable with his he's really value his life.
Could not as much as she should.
But I think such a change -- he does running to a certain female that he peeks his interest.
-- perfect setup thank you so much we have a clip.
I'm -- talking about a little long drama that's unfolding amid all this craziness that check it out.
So she needs something.
And not just because you.
And -- that was the problem.
Of course -- my sister's.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Practically strangers.
-- brain cell let's talk about that stands the fans in the stomach and how much interaction -- have with them on a regular basis.
In terms of fans you know -- sometimes I'll go to a convention -- They'll be here and there are so nice and welcoming they're so excited about the show because they even fan since a graphic novel and they just.
You know obviously they have their qualms about whether they.
There interpretation of how he should've been you hear that but there.
Mostly very supportive in.
-- very happy with how the other -- going.
In terms of you know every industry.
Sometimes -- -- run into people that recognize -- -- people are so nice and other encouraging so it's it's great to have that.
What is one of the best or strangest questions you've ever gotten.
From a fan about the show.
-- You know.
It you you normally get things like.
I think I heard one lake.
-- the zombie is gonna turn superhuman at some point we'll be involved with like extra limbs and stuff like that.
That's -- -- back I have no idea that's the creator.
I think we're gonna leave that I'm maybe like a level playing so that the people don't have today.
Get killed that every second right.
Yet they haven't have to yell at I kinda strange crash yeah lunchtime on a fat are you sharing at -- services with -- on because star's -- -- just sitting across -- -- and it's just business as usual -- -- -- lunch it's it's it's one little this past season was one little like lunch box that we -- in.
And it was great I mean everyone intermingled you know the cast.
And the crew.
All kind of sit with -- each other.
Cash you know if you're working at -- -- wanna -- seems so they're probably sitting together and talking about it.
But you know there's.
Zombies all over the place and I -- -- for them because some of them have make up that.
Doesn't allow for them to eat.
Because maybe their mouth is shot or they have extra teeth in.
So he is he's ignoring having your steak or whatever -- -- All well.
Funded jobs that's got when he plays on yeah -- locking down.
Sex in general and overall question just in this horrors John -- on a college that in the age old battle of zombies vs vampires.
Where do you stand is there enough -- in pop culture for all of the un dead or area is it is now it's time for the zombies and end the vampires had there.
-- -- -- You know what I think.
I think zombies turn I think zombies are coming and -- -- quote.
A giant surgeon.
Why can't we see sexy zombies I think it's I think it's inevitable and and it's gonna come soon.
I will have another question -- last person on this.
Is experience been like for you I know this is your biggest I -- series like this that you participated and so what has that been like as an -- It's been.

Two years ago.
Just doing theater there and you know to have this opportunity is great to have the people that I work with is absolutely great and to have you know a job I think he's great.
It's it's just insane so I'm just kind of hold -- on and hopefully.

I'll -- have to tell you we have a comment firmer on 1954.
On our live -- From a fan perspective -- -- in three gets the troops back on the road.
So I guess that means the leaving the alarm getting that -- America so what do you tell us give us a spoiler what's coming -- I can't do that I just say I can I guess fifth -- nice nice -- I can say you know.
