- Hello Matthew Payne Saverance and thank you for your time for the Fans of The Walking Dead.


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

I knew I wanted to be an actor at a very young age, I got into theater and drama when I was probably 6 and started doing school plays.


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

I was lucky enough to get on Fear because I was pretty close with the casting directors, I had just previously worked on one of their productions “Manhunt” for about 8 months. Later on I worked on another production for them called “Orgins” and while on that set I was asked to come on Fear The Walking Dead as a Stand In.


- Which caracters did you play in the series?

I mostly did stand in work for many of the season 8 villains, later on I did some Hero Walker work and was also apart of the teen army from Padre. I also did an action scene in the episode “Anton” as a German soccer player.


- Working in Fear The Walking Dead, What is the first what you remember when you look back on set?

When I look back at my time on Faer I think about the amazing moments I shared with my fellow cast and crew. It was truly an incredible experience and they made it that way.


- When you look back Do you have any interesting behind-the-scenes stories you can share?

One interesting BTS story I can share is I did a Stand In scene where I jumped out of a furnace onto another Stand In and then I spoke to the Stunt Coordinator about attending stunt school and then my stunt career began.


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

Probably having Reddit Threads about me and other cast members.


- Never say never in the TWD Universe. Will you come back ,maybe for an Tales of TWD Episode or Dead City?

If the timing is right and the opportunity presents itself then I will 100% join the project.


- Matthew, you also work for the Apple TV Series "Manhunt", thats right?

Yes I was the Stand In and Body Double for Anthony Boyle who portrayed John Wilkes Booth and I was also the Stand In for Brandon Flynn Jr who played Eddie Jr. They both took me under their wing and mentored me and helped boost my acting skills and confidence.


- What will we see next from you? Any projects/movies/series?

There are several project to be released soon, I can only speak about the ones on my IMDB page so check it out to see what’s to come!


- Is there any dream role or actor/actress you would loved to work in the future?

My dream role is to play a Jedi in Star Wars and I would love to work alongside Ryan Reynolds.
