Interview: The Walking Dead's Milton, Dallas Roberts

November 12, 2012


Our sister site ShockTillYouDrop.com has posted an interview with Dallas Roberts, who plays Milton on The Walking Dead. His character is one of the Governor's right hand men. He functions as a scientist in the Woodbury community and studies the 'walkers.' In the interview, Roberts dishes on the creative process of the series along with how he prepared for the role. Here's an excerpt:

I was actually a fan of the comic book before I got the job. I was on another show on AMC called "Rubicon" and my character there, Miles, was into comic books, so I thought, "Oh, let's read some comic books and see what's going on." One of the ones that stuck with me was "The Walking Dead," so I actually had an intimate knowledge of the story and then once the show first came out, started watching and realized how they would drift away from the comics and then come back to pieces of the comics and then drift away. I think they've done a really good job maintaining a new creative vision for it while still satisfying those of us, like me, who know the story. Certainly, you wouldn't want to just serialize the comics in television form or everyone who has been familiar with the comics would know exactly what was going to happen. I think they've stricken a really nice balance between staying true to the comics and still feel free to roam around in other territory.

Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, The Walking Dead stars Andrew Lincoln, Laurie Holden, Steven Yeun, Norman Reedus, Chandler Riggs, Lauren Cohan, Scott Wilson, David Morrissey and Danai Gurira.
