TWD Wiki: How did you get you role on The Walking Dead?

I work as an extra in the movies and TV shows filmed here in Atlanta, GA. Got lucky I guess. We all submitted through Extra Castings Atlanta and were told that the director hand picked us. I don't know how true that was... lol

TWD Wiki: Did you watch the show or read the graphic novels prior to your casting?

No.. Never did...

TWD Wiki: How is it like to work on the set?

It was a great set to work on.. a lot of good people .....

TWD Wiki: Did your character have a name or a backstory? If not did you make one up for yourself?

No it didn't have a name.. I never thought about making one up.. Wish I had now.. Why didn't you suggest that back then...lol...

TWD Wiki: Was there anymore to the scenes that didn't make it past post-production?

The season finale had a lot that was cut out.. All of us extras that worked on it were very disappointed.

I'll have to think about that one.. I'll get back to you on that..
