Sheryn Longmore-Scott Interview
I also played Madison Clark’s double and many Walker

- Hello Sheryn Longmore-Scott and thank you for your time for the Fans of The Walking Dead.


When was the time you knew you wanted to be an actress?

When I was about 13 years old, I thought about how fantastic it would be to be a movie star, I even made it through the first audition for NIDA (National Institute for Dramatic Arts) in Sydney, Australia, but someone close to me told me I shouldn’t risk my future on something so unobtainable, and unfortunately I listened. That was before so many Australians infiltrated Hollywood! 


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


Which scene was that? Or do you say that to all of us? lol

I’m not really sure how it happened! Somehow I was cast for a scene in the limited series “Manhunt” - it was when we were on set that I met people who were doing FTWD & said I should apply for it. They showed me their “walker” moves and I decided why not. Obviously I did something right in my audition video and became a regular “walker” in season 8. It was an amazing time in my life working with such incredible people! 


- Which characters did you play in the series?


I played a number of walkers, including “swamp” walker, “massacred head” walker”, “burnt” walker, “frozen” walker and many others in between. I also played Madison Clark’s double” as well as a soldier and a teacher at PADRE. 



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


I remember being incredibly nervous on my first day, no idea what to expect, but then I met the people I would be working with every day! They (fellow cast and crew) were my most outstanding memory! We spent long days (and nights) on set. We grew to know all our fellow cast members incredibly well. We laughed and (very Occasionally)  cried together! There was a bond between that grew without any of us trying. It was a bond so intangible, you didn’t know it was there until our time together was coming to an end and the term “Fear Family” kept being repeated. We became family. 





- When you look back is there something special you can share with us?Maybe a funny moment, or something special.


There were so many special and funny moments! My first time playing Madison’s double, I had to scratch on the wall and I was so nervous because there were already a number of scratches on the wall and only so much room! They had to physically film my hand scratching on the wall a few times. I only got one practice! I’m sure my hand was shaking the first time they filmed and the second time, David (the cameraman) told me a funny story to help me relax then said “just take a deep breath, you’re doing great”! From that moment on, I was fine! 


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

Dead fan experiences?


I really only had one fan experience and she asked me to hold her puppy, but when the puppy tried to eat my mushrooms, I laughingly ate the puppy and she got a great photo! I’ve now moved to Italy and not too many people know I was on the show. 


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


If I can, I definitely will! I loved my time on the show! 



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


I was just in Manhunt and will possibly be in the new Channing Tatum/Scarlett Johansson movie “Fly Me to the Moon”


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


I would love to be involved in something whilst living here in Europe! I’m looking into any possibilities. As far as working with anyone in particular, I’d love to work with Sir Anthony Hopkins or Dame Judi Dench. I’d like to do something comedic rather than too serious. Life is too serious, so if we can laugh, then we should. 


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


We love you and appreciate you all! 


- Thank you being my guest Sheryn Longmore-Scott and best wishes for the future. I hope to see you one day in Germany.

Thank you! I’ll be in Germany (just outside of Frankfurt) in a few weeks! If anyone wants to say hi, please let me know!
