Alycia Debnam-Carey talks ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ and ‘The 100’ with W Magazine

Posted on 4 min read 41 views

Fear the Walking Dead actress Alycia Debnam-Carey recently chatted with W Magazine, where she revealed that she never planned on doing TV and what it’s like being a part of a huge franchise like The Walking Dead.


On When She Started Acting:

“I started when I was really young. My mom’s a children’s television writer, so I was involved and around from a very young age. When I was eight I did my first film with Rachel Ward and Bryan Brown, who are a quite well-respected Australian producer-director duo, and that just changed my whole perspective on what I could do in life and be. From there, I just kept doing it. And during my last year of school, I decided I was going to go overseas to try it.”

On her first job she booked in LA:

“I booked a horror film called Where the Devil Hides. It’s… you know, a horror film. But it was the first full-length movie I’d ever done and it got me my visa and I could start work. My first year was incredible, and I booked a couple of jobs. The second year was just crickets. I didn’t book any jobs, which was so disheartening. I was getting close to things, but never actually working. But that’s a lot of L.A. and a lot of this job. You can’t do it unless you’re ready to face a lot of rejection. You just can’t.”

On not initially wanting to do TV:

“It’s funny because TV wasn’t something that I wanted to do. I wanted to do movies. I’d said a lot of no’s to a lot of shows previously, because I couldn’t fathom being on a show for such a long time and only doing one thing. But it is interesting how now TV has just exploded; it is chapters in a book rather than one novel. And especially now that studios are either making superhero films or sequels. But I got [CW dystopian show] The 100, when I still had that idea of, “I don’t know if I should be doing TV.” But I knew it was a cool character.”

Alycia Debnam-Carey for Vogue

On what she learned doing TV for the first time on The 100

“You learn a lot of technicality. You have to be very aware of everyone else’s jobs as much as your own. It’s hard because you don’t get to spend as much time on your own material, because you get scenes at the last moment. But then you also get an incredible arsenal of knowledge of filming TV. You get to know what is important, and I needed that. I couldn’t have done anything bigger than that. I look at these kids who are starring in huge films and am amazed at how well they fare. Of course you have great production behind you, but a lot of it is on you when you have to herald a massive franchise. I think of how much I’ve learned from doing television, and it is so invaluable.”

On if she was a Walking Dead fan before joining Fear the Walking Dead:

“I hadn’t seen it. I did a quick binge. I watched three seasons in a week. I had to stop because it was getting really intense and I was working on it while watching it. So going in, I had absolutely no idea—I knew it was a thing, but not to what extent. But sometimes it is better to go in like that, or else you will pysch yourself out.”

On when she realized it was a phenomenon:

“Probably the first Comic Con that we did. I was up on that panel in front of 6,000 people, and we were all just mute and scared. People had warned us, but that is when it all hit. It was way bigger that we expected. We anticipated enough, but you really see a whole other level of it at Comic Con.”

On her character Alicia:

“It has been nice to have a character that has had a real growth. This is a character who went from being a normal teenage girl before the apocalypse to someone who has been really ravaged by it. And not in necessarily a bad-ass way. Of course she looks amazing doing it, but there has been something very dark, very real, and very traumatic. It is amazing to go through all of those emotions and be able to explore the full journey of one person, and how they get to that place. Often you see someone in the middle of this arc, where it’s like, “And now they are this cool, warrior badass.” This felt like a lead up, and now I get to give people exactly that.”

The 100’s Bob Morley talks Bellamy in Season 3: “He’s trying to really define who he is”

Posted on 2 min read 55 views

Now that the CW’s hit show The 100 is back in full swing, fans can expect even further character development in the show, as characters as further transformed from the arrival of the adults, and the new drama unfolding between the inhabitants of Earth.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Bob Morley dished on what fans can expect to see from his character Bellamy in the new season:

On His Character, Bellamy:

“I think in season 3, he’s trying to really define who he is. He has stepped away from a leadership role and under the wing of Kane, is being modeled into being a good leader, a more balanced leader, as opposed to being so hotheaded and emotional when making a decision. But as Pike comes along, the lines blur a bit, and Bellamy’s emotions do get the better of him. He can’t help but be passionate and start to go back to his old ways of being an emotionally based leader, as opposed to a pragmatic leader.”

On the changes Bellamy has undergone:

“Bellamy was, like you said, kind of a black-and-white douche in the pilot, but he always had a heart, and his sister was the key to that. He had a big heart, but would make very rash decisions based on emotions. In his development, I feel like he stayed true to that the whole way… though he’s probably got better hair now. [Laughs] ”

On Season 3:

“There’s the issue of sustainability and there not being enough food. That’s going to be a major issue for everyone on the ground. Though that’s not being touched on that much, it is what drives Pike … Alie’s obviously one to watch out for, she plays a huge role. Season 3 gets quite sci-fi, and even I and the rest of the cast would have to really read and reread the scripts to make sure we’re all following what’s happening with the artificial intelligence world. Luckily for me, Bellamy was pretty in the dark about that whole thing, so I could play dumb quite easily. … Watching Bellamy kind of get a bit left behind [the high-tech world] is fun. His story was always kind of low-tech.”

Be sure to check out The 100 when it airs on Thursdays at 9PM ET on the CW. You can also check out Bob’s full interview here!

‘The 100’ Cast Dishes on What’s to Come in Season 2 at Comic-Con 2014

Posted on 1 min read 52 views

J

oining the many celebrities flocking to San Diego, California for Comic-Con International 2014 on Friday (July 25) were the stars of the CW’s hit show The 100.

Marie Avgeropoulos and Eliza Taylor joined co-stars Isaiah Washington, Ricky Whittle, Devon Bostick, and Lindsey Morgan at the event, where they did an interview with SiriusXM, while also dropping by the Microsoft VIP Lounge to Skype with some lucky fans.

Later on, the group sat down for their Comic-Con panel, where they dished on what’s to come in Season 2.

Here are some of the highlights from The 100 panel, from Zap2it:

On New Romances:“Probably more like casual survival sex,” producer Jason Rothenberg dished. “The love story is important and has its place for sure but icing on the cake is a strong word for it. It’s more about survival but romance will come.”

On Jaha’s fate: Isaiah Washington simply teased: “It will be special, it will be special.”

On Moutain Men & Mount Weather: “We’ll understand why these people are fighting so hard to maintain this little patch of Eden,” Rothenberg says. “I don’t think the people in Mount Weather necessarily knew they were there until they blew up the bridge in episode 10,” Rothenberg continues. “That was the iconic image of the end of the world that the Mountain Men would have grown up fearing. So that was the moment that woke the sleeping giant.”

On the Grown-Ups On the Ground: “We started with a ‘Lord of the Flies’ scenario and now with the grown ups on the ground, the story changes fairly significantly,” Rothenberg says. “The 100 who used to fight each other is now a band of brothers hardened by this environment.”

Watch out for Season 2 of The 100 when it premieres on October 22nd on the CW!
