I didn't know much about the 'Walking Dead' until after I booked the gig, and then I watched the first four seasons. I binge watched them in two weeks, and at that moment I realised, 'Oh, this is a much bigger thing than I thought it was.'
I must say, I always - from experience, when I watch TV shows and I see characters leave without a proper explanation or leave with not enough time, I get irritated. I like it when there's a clean-cut reason or a defining moment where they have to go. Whether that's death or not, I think that's subjective.
Comic-Con is my jam!
That contagion idea is so relevant and shows how quickly civilization could self-destruct.
That doomsday idea is in everybody's subconscious.
My mom's a children's television writer, so I was involved and around from a very young age. When I was eight, I did my first film with Rachel Ward and Bryan Brown, who are a quite well-respected Australian producer-director duo, and that just changed my whole perspective on what I could do in life and be.
'The 100' has such ferociously passionate fans.
Watch 'Fear the Walking Dead,' because we'd love your support, but I think 'The 100' is such a great show; it was a great show before I got there. It's only getting better, and I'm so lucky I got to be a part of it.
In L.A., it's not on the surface. Everything is in the cracks. The restaurant out front will look like this old, boring place, and you'll go inside, and it's this lush, beautifully designed restaurant.
I studied classical percussion for ten years.
Once electricity and petrol and facilities and food stop, society stops. It's crazy.
With any sort of minority, issues of ostracization or misrepresentation are clearly rampant. It's just so deeply rooted in our culture, and there are so many levels that it trickles down from.
At first, I was saying to my rep, 'I don't know if this is really my thing.' I get heart palpitations just watching basic comedy-horror stuff.
I'm not a person who's obsessed with scary movies or horror films or anything like that, so when I was watching the original 'Walking Dead,' I was kind of surprised at how into it I was getting.
I was on Instagram or something, and I checked my tagged photos, and I realized that suddenly they were all LGBT artwork. I was like, 'Oh, my God!' I had no idea. It was the first time I realized I was a figure for that community.
