The Walking Dead, Season 7: AUSTIN AMELIO / Dwight

How Is Dwight Different Than When We First Met Him Last Season?
When you first met Dwight last season he has a romanticized vision of what the world should be like. He’s an idealistic guy. He wants the world to go back to how it was. He’s not used to the rules and what is going on. Then you see him at the end of the season and he has totally succumbed to this universe. He’s fully submersed in what the world is now.

Why Did Dwight Choose To Go Back to the Sanctuary and to Negan?
You don’t really leave the Sanctuary when you are under Negan’s thumb. He will find you and he will kill you. That’s how he works. I don’t think he understood the gravity of the situation. Negan is this weird dichotomy of someone that you hate and he protects you at the same time.

Why Does Dwight Hate Daryl So Much?
Daryl is a constant remembrance of who Dwight used to be.

What Are You Excited About For Your Character This Season?
I’m excited about the private moments you get to see with Dwight. You don’t know what he’s thinking.
