The Walking Dead returned for the midseason premiere of Season 8 on Sunday and that means that Talking Dead is back! 8.3 million viewers said goodbye to Chandler Riggs whose character Carl finally met his demise.
Chandler grew up on the show, and this week Talking Dead aired never-before-seen footage of an interview that I shot with Chris Hardwick and Chandler on set in 2012. They say that nothing measures time like children, so it was a special thrill for me to see this old footage from my first visit to the Walking Dead set. Just a week earlier, I got the first call to direct interviews with Chris and cast. To prepare, I watched 8 hrs of episodes from the prison season and then got on a plane to Atlanta. We arrived to scout during a night shoot. I can’t describe how creepy/awesome it was to have binged watched a show I love and then stand there on the prison set just a few hours later. I love my job.
Watch Talking Dead every Sunday at 10pm ET on AMC. Check out exclusive interviews with cast & crew during my time on set in Atlanta.
