Gale Anne Hurd Talks ‘Walking Dead’ Season 2
Q: What are you excited to explore in the next season?
Gale Anne Hurd: We had six episodes to set up the world and to introduce the characters and now I think we can go even more deeply into each of our ensemble cast members.
Q: So each one could maybe star in their very own episode?
GAH: Exactly, we’ve had stories that concentrate on one character or another and I think we’ll be seeing a lot more of that this season.
Q: Who have we not heard from enough yet?
GAH: I think there’s still a lot more that we can learn from Daryl, the Norman Reedus character. I think that episodes focusing on Lori played by Sarah Wayne Callies, we’ve got a great triangle between Rick, Laurie and Shane. I have a sneaking suspicion that might be something we’re going to explore even more deeply in the new season.
Q: Do you wish you’d done more than six?
GAH: You know, we barely survived the six so now we’re geared up and we’ve got it dialed in so now we have the energy and I think the right team in place to do 13.
Q: Do you have any new zombie ideas to explore?
GAH: I think we pretty much set up the world of zombies. They’re not insane bolt sprinters. I think Greg Nicotero’s makeup effects are tremendous. We’re here because Stargate was nominated for best supporting visual effects and I think their work is seamless and we’ll be able to give them more to do this season.
