The Split Screen Festival took place last week at the IFC Center in New York and there were many television show and movie premieres that were shown at the event. Fans got the chance to attend the screenings and see the cast and key people that are part of the show take the stage to talk about them. It was a fun experience for the fans and absolutely great to see this happen.
Of the shows, AMC Network’s Fear The Walking Dead had the biggest prescense of the weekend as fans were awaiting to see the premiere of the fifth season. I attended the red carpet event that took place at the IFC Center and cast members Alycia Debnam Carey, Colman Domingo, Jenna Elfman, Danay Garcia, and Austin Amelio (who crossed over to this show from the main show) were there along with exceutive producer Scott Gimple to take photos and answer questions about the season to the media. I was able to interview Alycia, Austin and Gimple.
Austin Amelio talked about his upcoming story in the fifth season of Fear and we also talked about what would happen if Daryl was to see him again, if we will see Sherry as well, if Negan would kill him if he seen him, and how often he keeps in contact with Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
Alycia was the next person I interviewed as we talked about how much of an influence Madison will be in this season since she is not on the show anymore. I also asked if we were convinced if Madison is dead. She also brings up a good story about Lennie James (Morgan) while they were filming and if she thinks that killing walkers is very theraputic. We also talk about the radaition plot on the second episode of the fifth season as well and when she will cross paths with Dwight.
And finally, I got a chance to speak to Scott Gimple. We talked about the current progression of his and Robert Kirkman’s comic book series Die!Die!Die and how the current season of Fear will connect with the upcoming Rick Grimes films and the main show of The Walking Dead. The biggest piece of news from the interview is that the second spinoff series will begin filming next month so that will be something to look forward to.
Fear The Walking Dead airs on Sunday night at 9:00 pm EST on AMC Network
