Colman Domingo is Fear The Walking Dead’s wild card…
What’s in store for Victor Strand in season 2.5?
The places where we all began with this show, we couldn’t be further from them. We’ve become something different. That’s what an apocalypse will do to you. It’ll bring out the ugliest stuff and the best stuff. My character has a journey of being deconstructed. It’s less about the suit. He’s becoming more human in a way.
how has Strand’s perception of madison changed?
There’s one scene where Kim [Dickens] and I are drunk in a bar. And Kim gets upset thinking about her family. She’s breaking glasses, and of course the dead arise and we have to fight our way out. Kim smashes a bottle over someone’s head and Strand is looking at her like, “Oh my god. Where did THIS come from?!” Then we have a scene where some big dude’s following her – we’re still drunk – and I see she’s stabbing the guy in the stomach with a bottle. I’m like, “Oh my god!” The women are the bad asses in this show [laughs].
What’s the best part of filming in mexico?
There’s a bar here that Russell Crowe made, called the Monkey Bar. Because he wanted his cocktail the moment he got off set. He didn’t want to go down to Rosarito [laughs]. Baja Studios has such great history with these epic films. We’re the first television series to shoot here. I love it because we’re not sharing it with other shows. This is our home.
