We speak with Norman Reedus, Steven Yuen, and Danai Gurira of AMC's popular The Walking Dead.
With a hiatus before the conclusion of The Walking Dead comes home to fans on AMC, some of the lead actors from Robert Kirkman's hit TV series hit the red carpet at the VGAs. Norman Reedus, Steven Yuen and Danai Gurira talks undead and games in this exclusive interview.
Okay first you guys, congratulations on The Walking Dead, you guys are all phenomenal actors and actresses. What’s it been like working on the show so far?
Reedus: Wow. I mean, we all really love each other, it’s kinda weird. But you know, we don’t shoot it out here, we shoot it in the woods, in our own little bubble, and we rely on each other everyday. So it’s been a blessing just knowing everyone.
And I gotta say, right now there’s a lot of talk right now between you and Steven about who’s the more popular character, because everyone loves you right now (points to Yuen), but everyone LOVES you now too (points to Reedus)!
Yuen: That’s not even a question, come on man (points at Reedus).
Gurira: They’re gonna fight over that.
Do you guys do any gaming on set at all?
Yuen: Uh, what’s that?
Do you guys do any gaming on set at all, during your spare time?
Reedus: Uh, we shoot each other with bb guns.
Yuen: Yea, that’s true.
Gurira: Oh, that’s true, that’s true – we play with Norman’s “gifts”. Norman gets a lot of gifts, so we play with his bb guns, that’s true.
And who are you guys rooting for tonight at the VGA’s, like what game?
Reedus: Well I mean, one of the first person shooters is the one (Michael) Rooker did, right?
Yuen: Oh yea, Call of Duty, the new Call of Duty is probably gonna be awesome. Halo 4 is always fun. Uh, I don’t know, Madden? (laughs).
