‘To play a bad guy who’s just a bad guy all the time is not very interesting; playing a bad guy who has puppy eyes and is depressed and crying on the other hand… Equally, to play a good guy who is wholly good is boring, but to play a good guy who wants revenge is interesting. It’s that tussle I like.’

“EW was photographing Andrew Lincoln, Melissa McBride, and Norman Reedus outside the former prison yard from season 3 and 4 of The Walking Dead. Lincoln and Reedus were behind McBride and Lincoln started laughing and was unable to maintain any actor composure in front of photographer Dan Winters’ camera. Lincoln NEVER breaks character and always maintains his American accent, even on a photo shoot. So this giggle fest was so strange to witness. Lincoln yelled for Reedus to stop and Reedus shouted, ‘Why? No one’s gonna see this!’

After a little investigating, we realized Reedus had been trying to hold Lincoln’s hand in the photos behind McBride’s back. Reedus knows how to make a great picture and also likes to give great imagery to his fans, so I asked the trio if we could shoot them from behind, and then I told Melissa McBride to turn her head towards the camera. They all complied, and then Reedus and Lincoln gave us something a little extra—taking their bromance to a whole other level. I love this picture because it just happened organically. Everyone needs a cheeky Norman Reedus.”

‘If you feel socially awkward there’s reasons why you feel socially awkward. Maybe you feel socially awkward on the outside because inside you don’t feel like you fit in. And I like feeling like I don’t fit in, and I’ve always liked feeling like I don’t fit in and I’m perfectly cool with it. When someone would fake it to fit in on the outside it really rubbed me the wrong way.’

‘There’s a happiness about me, a confidence and a happiness that I didn’t have when I was younger. You feel good inside, you look good outside. I feel like I look like somebody who’s having a good life, who’s enjoying it a little better than I did before. You can be really good-looking in your twenties but feel miserable, and people just sort of walk away.‘

‘I used to think that art came from dark emotions and my art, mainly sculptures, paintings, and photos, was made at the darkest times of my life. Though I did do some really cool shit back then, I got over that idea. Maybe it’s growing up or seeing the other side of the coin.’
