The ability of an actor to transform for a role is one of the most important aspects in making a film not just good – but memorable. What really impresses me is when they take on a role that I wouldn’t consider just challenging – but maybe a bit frightening. These are the kind of roles you don’t want to lose yourself in – because it would be dangerous.
This past Friday at The Midland Theatre in Kansas City, I hosted a Walking Dead live Q&A with actors Norman Reedus, Michael Rooker, Lauren Cohen, and producer/director/makeup legend Greg Nicotero. It was an absolute blast and the sold-out crowd went nuts for the talent behind this boundary-pushing TV show. I had a great time onstage and was especially happy to report what down-to-earth, awesome people they all were offstage as well.
