Transcript for 'The Walking Dead' Star Josh McDermitt Talks Role of A Lifetime
He is the most watched drama in the history cable television let's face -- the Walking Dead and it's never ending procession of -- zombies is just. Addictive but there is one man one man alone who believes that he has the answers. To save the world. -- -- This wasn't your plan. Might even fulfill our navigating when he told him to go to sleep no -- never claimed otherwise. Haven't you apologize for the slander -- square. If -- -- -- was still eleven there were no significant delays and they continued traveling at approximately three miles per hour and -- time -- correctly in my head. -- not -- somewhere around here the hosts two -- not the -- or. The only priority is getting you to Washington. After a save the world. Itself to live with myself. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It kind of got its own trailer and clear I mean way -- more demands that I have it's actually. It's funny because we call it -- -- -- the moment of life. And we're like parachuting in Georgia down in the elements in the he in the bugs and all that stuff and and they hear people say you know it's definitely -- you're tired just over. Starts the moment -- the -- recharged so I had heard -- -- Kentucky waterfalls. I love that which I think is I don't mean that any kind of -- way to to the folks at Kentucky I think it's a great name for it's an honor. So it should be proud and a that it has in the front party in the -- that -- right congratulations to you by the witnesses he. -- -- -- comedian which opted to keep a straight face through this entire process it's it's pretty easy because -- -- I was a big fan the Walking Dead. I don't necessarily get scared when -- -- on the shows and that sort of thing but I get scared of the paranormal my -- -- -- recount but. When your -- and you see the people dressed as zombies and they're in the full makeup and everything in your firing machine guns and whatnot it's easy to keep street -- and hook. Let's let and actually scared. So it's. It it has been tough to make the transition -- all -- it's -- a -- on what -- on the set because in the Telecom I'm picturing in my mind that you get on this that and all of a sudden you see someone with like half their case. Rip off. And it's like while the coffee after that ride which -- right away I get there about an hour before we start shooting and it shocks you right away -- you're like okay this is my job yet it's it it's still a little shocking you see you know you'll -- like some addresses on the -- Booker you know eating an apple in between takes -- you know. Oh yeah this is -- check in their black there. On Amazon. But every once -- on a C one room telling people around a tree and you you know -- -- -- today. -- -- freaks you definitely don't in the conference stupid question do you go arises on the for Halloween. Now I'm Mike really going on dresses -- -- this gimmick though. I can't wait until next Helen -- see how people are gonna address if they're gonna addresses Eugene Porter can I think it's a -- Constance -- them -- and on and and keep a straight face -- well so I mean there's the -- I have him talk but it basically has its own fan club now. It does it's got to it has its own Twitter. Is that Clinton had -- -- ballot. And detonated but it just means that it's not endorsement mean I don't -- -- say I don't know what they're tweeting but -- -- you have of their own Twitter. And yeah people adjustment -- not that it's been really well received that the thing -- I think when walking for stirred up for -- heads in the show before this thing like zombies and honestly how captivating in this really be yeah. Well it is -- fun -- Yeah it's not mean it's not a zombie show make sure the zombies or character in the in themselves but it's it's a show about survival in this -- about these people. Trying to survive with in this world and I mean that's. Did you know it's still -- as big as this show is that so many people that don't watch and -- like known -- the -- -- obviously not just -- on -- is that at a true testament as well because I know. Whenever was talking but isn't getting on hide our heads in the show's life turn but -- We want it scared the crap out of it episode which is great but -- review definitely get hooked into it because that's the story -- very very complex. So when you that hates to plays incredibly pivotal role that I mean that's going to be a lot of pressure as an actor knowing that there's going to be this devoted following of fans that -- -- watching your every move. To see these people you know I was really scared just because it was a huge fan of the show to -- -- -- -- the guy that comes in screws it up you know. And down. It did it there's a lot of pressure yet I think but also have just been really welcoming him in 99.9 percent of the people on the Internet instantly just been like. Going nuts and release that I mean there's a couple thinkers with me. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It it makes it easier to be shooting them and those elements in Georgia so. I do miss the stand up I will probably do another two -- at some point but right now on this afternoon walking than -- you go you get into the folks in makeup and hair is far is going to say what. You screw -- you know make into -- -- someday yet you know what I don't sweat alive I'm just the fact you know and I well. -- -- -- -- -- Georgia I mean honestly yes it's very hot down there but the great thing a -- doing you know a show like you know doing something like this you know under the lights on its -- make -- an hour. On the Walking Dead they just look a year ago now the more you sweat the -- you could actually sweat some more -- think it's a perfect situation. Don't go -- -- dozen -- in the -- -- and then come back and we'll do's see yeah right. We resolved to fight because I want it to take a look is obviously -- Olympics must be difficult to be out of the right. You know you we've followed. That was the first thing the guy what I did I was one nose job I guess that would be out amid a record high school yearbook -- there. But the before and after that -- on Sunday morning. It's out of your daily read about my Saturday night yes what what what's ahead now -- we can you give us any little tip that we might be looking full. Or two for the season -- we got in -- the finale is on Sunday and our group just made to determine a safe haven and we're gonna see if Rick commission on and Carl and and -- and anyone else meet up to determine this I mean it's it's -- this place where. They lost the prison right they have no hope at this point the they've lost each other. And so we're just seeing if term this is going to be that Plavsic and kind of help and -- -- are you surprised by the ending. I'm it or I'm not surprised okay -- just because I think. This is a fan of the show I -- expect great television and I think people are going to be really happy about what happens on Sunday we're going to be watching that were too much in Ramallah -- Watson continued success of the walking down and see -- McDermott thanks for stopping by us for having me.
