- Hello Elgin Lee and thank you for your time for the Fans.

You are welcome and thanks for the invite. 

- Elgin , When was the time you know you want to be an actor?

Well in 2016 I was recovering from a surgery and became fan of the show underground. They filmed season 2, new me in Savannah and I had to get on set. I eventually did and the rest is history.

- You worked in one of my Favorite series. "Fear The Walking Dead" How did you get cast ? 


Well first I worked in the original show season 8,9,10. Plus I work on the live action tour for the show in senoia. Then using the experience from those two I found out fear was coming to my area and knew the casting director from other work and as a fan I had to get on. 

- You played a Walker.  What is the first what you remember when you look back on set?



Yes I was a walker numerous times but my first great memory was a a savior watching negan and Simon fight to the death. But on fear just being with friends and fans sharing their first days trying to get the walk just right lol.

I was a savior, hilltop resident, a whisper and also a double for Virgil and a double for Morgan. 

- Working with the Main Cast will be a dream of so many fans. How was your time with the Main Cast?


Loved working with both cast of TWD and Ftwd . So many hot days at hilltop. Being at just about all the communities was awesome. Meeting all the cast of the original and then fear was a fans dream come true. 

- Did you get "killed" in FTWD? 


Yes I was killed several times on both shows but nothing to dramatic or over the top. Mostly group kills or done off screen. 

- With a role in TWD/FTWD comes a Big Fan Community, what are your first The Walking Dead fan experiences?


Driving from set on the original show seeing fans lined up waving at all of us stars and background alike. Also putting on the tour show for fans was awesome they loved it.

Yes that was my first time working with Tyler Perry up close and being directed by him. Great experience and made the next time even better.
