Can We Trust Aaron?
Exclusive Interview With Aaron (Ross Marquand)

Ross Marquand, who plays Aaron, talks about keeping his role on the show a secret and whether the group should trust Aaron.

Q: Your arrival was a big deal among fans. What’s it like being the subject of intense discussion?

A: I’ve been following along and it’s fantastic; and of course it’s sparking a little bit of debate in terms of whether we can trust Aaron, if it’s going to closely mirror the comics or if it’s going to go in a totally different direction. It’s wonderful and it’s strange, too, because I’ve been a fan of the show since the beginning. So, to go from mainlining Season 4 two weeks before I got cast to actually being on the show is bewildering in the best way.

Q: What’s the biggest difference between watching the show as a fan and acting in front of the camera?

A: I’ll be honest. I was freaking out! It’s one of my favorite shows and I want to do it justice, but I also have a great deal of professional regard for the actors on the show. I wanted to make sure I was doing my part to help facilitate the story and that I’m adding to something big.

Q: What was your first day on set like? Did any of the cast members give you advice?
