Who was the most fun person to work with on The Walking Dead?
Ooh, it really depends on what you mean by “fun to work with”. Steven Yeun will make you laugh just by looking at you and taking a deep breath, and I don’t know how that’s possible. Norman Reedus is one of the kindest, nicest people in the world, but don’t tell anyone, it’ll ruin his image! Andy Lincoln makes you a better actor because he’s brave and courageous. Jon Bernthal is a powerhouse, and scenes with him just explode. Melissa McBride is nothing short of genius, it’s an embarrassment of riches and it’s just one of the best jobs I’ve ever had because every member of that cast really brings something different. It was just such a huge honour to work with those people.
What’s been the most challenging time doing the series?
In a way, the ending of it was, I mean it was certainly emotionally the hardest because you’re in the process of saying goodbye to everyone and at the same time trying to wrap your head around the scenes. In another way, series one was the hardest because none of us realised how hard the show was going to be! And just how exhausting it was going to be to do.
