Question: What are the challenges of joining this big franchise? The comic’s been great. The other show has been the biggest show on TV. I know it’s a companion piece and stuff but does joining that franchise kind of put pressure…?
 
Kim Dickens: I think as a performer you go in, you just do your job and we get sort of immersed in the day to day, the moment to moment of creating these moments and making this show as great as we can, doing the best work we can on a daily basis. When people were asking me earlier, do you feel the pressure, I was like, no I don’t. I’m just focusing on doing a great job every day, trying to tell the best story. As it gets closer to presenting it, I’m a nervous wreck now.
It is like, oh my God, they’re so passionate! They’re the most amazing audience that I have ever seen for “The Walking Dead.” For them to have interest in us and to be excited about us, or to be wary of us, it’s something that’s rattling. That always happens to a performer, that you reach that moment when you then present it to the world. In this case I feel exceptionally vulnerable because you want them to be happy. You want it to be well-received. We really worked hard on it and we’re proud.
Alycia Debnam-Carey: We are. We love it. We’re honored to be a part of this. You don’t want to let the fans down who have so welcomed you into this wonderful world. I think any reaction, a strong reaction would be…
Kim Dickens: They’re entitled.
Alycia Debnam-Carey: Even if it isn’t like at first it is a little reluctant but I think… we put so much passion, energy and work into this show and we’re all so proud of it. It is very different, too. It does stand alone and I got to see a rough cut of the pilot and it’s great. It looks so very different. It’s got a very different style and feel. That L.A. backdrop is so special to the show, too. It’s very urban. It’s gritty. It has a real charm to it that’s so different from the original as well. The original has charm, obviously, but this is just a different show and I think a strong reaction would be –
Kim Dickens: Fair.
Alycia Debnam-Carey: Fair. Yes, totally.

Question: Shooting in East L.A., as an Australian, is that interesting for you?
Alycia Debnam-Carey: Yes, absolutely! I think that’s one of the great things about this, too. I’ve been kind of living in L.A. for a couple of years now and you do become very quickly accustomed to, like, oh, it’s Hollywood, or it’s West Hollywood, that kind of vibe. East L.A. is a very real part of L.A. It’s a working class neighborhood. It’s like a raw and gritty place but it’s also very beautiful. For me I only started really feeling at home in L.A. in the last six months. Discovering East L.A. was actually quite a big part of that, too, realizing that this is where the heart of it is. It’s one of the oldest parts of Los Angeles, too. There’s a lot of history and culture in that place.
Question: What questions did you have for the creators of the show when you first got on?
 
Kim Dickens: I did ask early on – I was auditioning and going for a second call back. What do I need to watch? How much do I need to watch? They said, don’t. You shouldn’t know anything. They kind of liked us right where we were, not super knowledgeable about what it’s going to look like in the apocalypse and just wanted to root it in these complicated relationships.
Alycia Debnam-Carey: I can’t really remember what questions I asked. We’re always finding on set, we’re always talking about the scenes. There is so much each character is doing. Each has quite distinct parts, each of us. How much you know and how much you don’t know. That’s quite a big thing I guess. Each episode we’re always like, wait. You know this but I don’t know this. I don’t want to be informed about it because it is our duty to make this as realistic as possible – that discoveries are so real.
