James W Barker portrayed a Walker in Season 3.
What role/roles have you played in The Walking Dead?
I am one of the walkers on season 3. Nothing big like swamp walker or woodchuck walker. But I did make the screen.
How did you get the role?
I worked a commercial for a gun part company as a zombie. and i sent in a pic of me in make up.
Did you read the graphic novel prior to getting a role in the show? If so, do you have a favorite character?
No I didnt even know there was one until i started on the show. I still havent picked it up yet cause i am a big fan of the show and I dont any spoilers.
What is it like to work with the amazing special effects artist Greg Nicotero?
Well he directed the episode that I was in and he had his guys in make up department do my make up. Greg was the best director I have ever worked with. Treated us extras very well. Made sure we were all ok and doing good.Do you have any interesting or funny stories to tell that occurred in the process of filming the show?
I was on set smoking a cigarette and BOOM!! One of the towers went up in smoke and flames. I didnt excpet it and scared the poop out of me.
Did you create your walker a name or backstory for yourself?
Sadly no, didnt have any good screen time with it. I was 1 of 2 kills the Governor had the episode. So my back story now is when I get back on the show The Governor is my target, lol.
Are you currently working on any other projects?
No still looking for the next gig. Any background work.
