I know many have written The Walking Dead off in recent years, but the show has been given new life by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, playing the chief villain in the series. Previously villains were always easily disposed of by superman Rick.
Not this time though, with Rick being reduced to a sniveling bitch, finally.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Jeffrey Dean Morgan revealed how – before filming begins – he basically bullies Andrew Lincoln, trying to get inside the actor’s head, mimicking his character.
“I know I’m doing my job the more mad Andy Lincoln gets,” Morgan told the publication. “So if off-camera he’s screaming and swearing in between takes, I know me and Negan are doing our job and I’ve gotten him pretty riled up. And then, of course, we have to go and apologise and get back to being friends after takes, but it’s been intense. And that is fun.”
