Last season, Spencer and Rosita appeared to be starting a relationship…
It was a really complicated relationship at the end of last season. We know that there has been a physical thing, and Spencer asked her out on a date and she didn’t show. There is tension there. She doesn’t understand him and maybe she doesn’t want to.
Why has Spencer always questioned Rick as a leader?
Spencer is walking this line of trying to do the right thing, trying to walk the line with Rick, trying to be true to what he thinks he should do. I hope he comes off as a very conflicted, interesting, smart guy. It’s intense playing Spencer. It’s intense being on this show. It’s an intense world they live in.
When did it feel like you were back to work on The Walking Dead this season?
I didn’t want to read the first script. I knew we were back at the table read, and then it was the ticks.
What are you most excited about for this season?
It’s going to be interesting to see the world expand. That’s going to be exciting to see incredible new characters come in, and what that means to the group and to the whole world. I want to see what happens with Negan and the Saviors, and what that does to these characters that we love.
This cast often comes in when they are not working to give fellow actors eye lines…
We are a team. We have got to help each other out and be there for each other. It’s the way to be.
