The Walking Dead: Cast and Creators Live at PALEYFEST

"The Walking Dead" at PALEYFEST on March 1, 2013. After a dark and brooding sophomore season, the series -- based on Robert Kirkman's graphic novels -- has been redirected and adrenaline-rushed, without sacrificing any of the compelling character drama and profound moral quandaries that have elevated it to the highest reaches of genre TV.

This William S. Paley Television Festival live event honors "The Walking Dead," the drama/horror series based on the graphic novels of the same name about a group of Southerners fighting for survival when the undead begin to walk the earth.

Chris Hardwick (TV host, "Talking Dead") moderates the following panelists: co-executive producer and makeup artist Greg Nicotero; executive produ

    I laughed out loud multiple times. Chris Hardwick is the perfect host. And of course the cast is awesome. Watch it!

    On March 1, 2013 – with Season 3 episodes still airing – the cast & producers of The Walking Dead were Paleyfested, resulting in an hour and a half of Q & A bliss for the fans. I’ve seen a ton of Paleyfest panels and this is one of the best ones, with none of those occasional awkward moments that sometimes plague these shindigs. I think it’s always a must that the moderator provides the energy and keeps not only the panel but the audience fully engaged. Colossal props to Chris Hardwick who keeps things moving and is hilarious and exhibits intimate knowledge of The Walking Dead. If you’d seen Talking Dead, the AMC talk show he hosts that comes after each new episode of The Walking Dead and that proceeds to deconstruct that episode, then you know how fantastic and in the loop the guy is.

    It helps that the cast and crew are having a blast during the interview. Their responses are thoughtful, insightful, philosophical, and often enough funny. The best line honors easily go to Steven Yuen for his “food field” remark and for his succinct response to the all-panel question (paraphrasing): “Have the actors ever had dreams or nightmares about the walkers?” Anyway, Hardwick ensures that each panelist gets repeated turns in the spotlight (okay, the exec. producers, maybe not so much). This is a very solid, very fun peek behind the scenes at one of the best dramas currently being broadcast on the small screen.

    The panel consists of moderator Chris Hardwick, creator/exec. producer Robert Kirkman, exec. producers Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert, f/x wizard/exec. producer Greg Nicotero and cast members Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Laurie Holden, Steven Yeun, Scott Wilson, and Emily Kinney.

    Here are just some of the questions raised on the panel:

    – Andrew Lincoln is asked about Rick’s emotional trauma in Season 3 and how it affects his leadership
    – Laurie Holden is asked to justify Andrea’s abandoning Michonne and sleeping with the Governor
    – How does Robert Kirkman reconcile his still writing the comic book while simultaneously being involved with producing a TV show that veers away from the comic book’s source material?
    – What would have happened to Darryl if he and Merle hadn’t run into Rick’s group?
    – Does anyone in the cast feel like they’re the next one to go? Do they ever feel safe?
    – Danai is asked to comment on why that one hitchhiker doesn’t get picked up by the group (love her response)
    – Will characters from the comic book, the televison show, and the video game eventually cross over?
