Robert Collins Interview - We pretty much became family

Hello Robert Collins and thank you for your time for the Fans.

It’s a honor, Thank you so much for having me! 




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

Well, I come from a small town in the mountains of Western North Carolina, I was always involved in different kind of church and school plays. Around 2019, there was an acting school that opened up about 20 minutes from my home and I went to the open house and met the owner/actor (Jon Menick) and I was signing up for classes to start taking and unfortunately, he died unexpectedly and that kind of put it in hold until I moved to Georgia and that’s where things really took off for me.  



- How did you get cast for the series Fear The Walking Dead?

I had just finished filming a movie call Origin, directed by Ava Duvernay, and I had seen a casting call for Fear The Walking Dead, so I applied and a few days later I get a call from the casting director and was offered the role and for the next few months it was an experience I will never forget. 



- Robert , did you watch the show or read the graphic novel, prior to

your casting to Fear The Walking Dead? 

I was The Walking Dead and was a big fan of Shane (Jon Bernthal) and when he got killed, I stopped watching for awhile. 



- Which role did you play?

I was a couple of different walkers on the show. One was a frosty walker where Madison and Daniel walk right past me and I almost had them in my reach to bite and make them one of us. 



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

the Main Cast?

Oh my, they were so awesome and professional. I remember in between takes, Daniel (Ruben Blades) came up to me and was chatting up a storm and we saw big birds flying over head and he said, well they’re not after me cause I’m not dead and pointed to me and laughed. He would fist bump us everytime he saw us on set and in between takes. 






- Looking back working on Fear The walking Dead....?

I made some of the best friends!! We all have a bond they will never be broken! We pretty much became family. Til this day, we sometimes end up on the same set filming other movies or TV shows and it makes the day go by so much smoother and helps each other get into character. We are one big, dead happy family! LOL



- There are some other movies or series you worked before?

Yes, I got to work with my dads favorite actor/director(Clint EastWood) and one of my favorite actors(Keifer Sutherland) called Juror #2, which should be out sometime fall of 2024, and I also got

to work on a project with Rebel Wilson called Bride Hard, not sure when it will be released. 



- - What does the future hold for you? Anything you would like to plug to our readers?

I’m not sure what the future holds, but I know who holds my future! I plan on continuing acting and taking classes to make myself a better actor and hope one day to land that big role I am working towards. I have a few projects right now I have been cast for and one is  with a pretty big actor, let’s call him Sylvester for now, and we should begin filming sometime in April 2024. 



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

I would like to work with Eddie Murphy on a film, maybe Beverly Hills Cop, if they make anymore, or any other film. He is such a talented Actor. 



- Is there anything else you would like to let TWD Fans and your fans know?

I just want to say Thank You to all the fans out there. Without you guys and gals, this wouldn’t have been  possible. Your love and support for this show and industry, made going to work everyday all worth while. We love you guys and gals!! 



- Thank you being my guest Robert Collins and best wishes for the future. I hope to 

see you one day in Germany.

It has been a pleasure and thank you for having me, it has been an honor. And, my wife and I plan on visiting Germany in the future.
