New Video Showcases How The Walking Dead Characters Come To Life

The Walking Dead: The Complete Seventh Season blu-ray collection comes packed with bonus features offering insider perspective of the series and its production with the latest clip revealing how its characters come to life.

In the video featured above, the cast and crew of The Walking Dead discuss the process of bringing the characters from Robert Kirkman’s comic series to live-action life every Sunday night on AMC. For the writers, it sounds like Season 7 was one of their favorites.

There’s something about The Walking Dead that makes it very different from any of show I’ve worked on,” co-executive producer/writer Matt Negrete said.

“There’s these great characters, small and large, that are just so much fun to write for,” Corey Reed, co-executive producer/writer said.

Showrunner Scott Gimple has his own reasons for loving the show as well, pointing out that “it’s this emotional story telling,” adding, “It’s all based on these characters that we like and we like hanging out with.”

“Because this is more of a character drama which is set in a genre world, its my dream job,” co-executive producer and writer Angela Kang said.

The writers particularly enjoyed writing for Negan because “writing dialogue for that character is a lot of fun,” given how unexpected his lines can be.
