THE WALKING DEAD Cast Talk Season 4
"I think there may be a wee bit less of the run and gun. And [we'll] get a little more into some of our characters,” says Executive Producer Greg Nicotero on Season 4 of AMC's The Walking Dead.
Attending 2013 Paley Fest in Beverly Hills, California, various members of The Walking Dead cast and crew talked about what's still to come in Season Three and looked ahead to Season Four.
On Season 4, newly made "Executive" producer Greg Nicotero shared the following.
I think there may be a wee bit less of the run and gun. And [we'll] get a little more into some of our characters. The challenge with a show like this, when you have a big ensemble, is you don’t want any of the characters to get lost; it’s important that we know what Carol’s story is and that we know what Beth’s story is. And when you’re trying to service a lot of characters, it becomes challenging. Watching the first season of Walking Dead and seeing how grounded it was, that’s really important to all of us. Andy Lincoln and I spent a lot of time going through the scripts and making sure we feel that they’re grounded. Because that’s what keeps our audience coming back. The walkers and the gore and the action and stuff, that’s fun, that’s the popcorn part of it. But if you don’t have characters that people are invested in, you lose your audience.”
Norman Reedus says Daryl isn't really much of a leader or a lady's man.
I don’t think he wants to be the leader in any way. Like with Randall, remember Randall? There’s a whole episode about ‘what do we do with Randall’ and Daryl just kind of quietly went in there and beat the s— out of him and came back with bloody knuckles and was like ‘yeah, what’s up?’ He wasn’t like ‘look at me, look what I did!” I think if he had to lead, it would be reluctantly. (And on Daryl and Carol)I like these two damaged people gravitating towards each other. It might happen…I don’t want to make the first move.I don’t think he has much game.
Carl takes on a role that readers of the comic book series will recognize in the last five episodes of Season Three said Andrew Lincoln.
"I see a boy turning into a soldier, which is a terrifying thing. And I think that that story between the group, the family, and this seemingly wayward boy turning into a child soldier is a terrifying and very interesting arc that we follow in the last five episodes.”
